After stumbling upon an early gig by the Sex Pistols, she formed the punk band X-Ray Spex, which released its first album, Germ Free Adolescents, in November 1978 to critical acclaim. Fans hailed Poly for her brash, distinctive voice, trademark braces and Day-Glo clothes, which rejected any attempt to mold her into a sex symbol and instead fashioned her as a feminist punk pioneer.

Shortly before releasing her new solo album 'Generation Indigo' in March 2011 Poly was admitted to St Michael's Hospice, East Sussex,
diagnosed with breast cancer.
