Panelists include: Paul Sng (filmmaker) and Celeste Bell (daughter of Poly Styrene). Chaired by Big Joanie's Steph Phillips.
Ever since she put out an ad looking for "young punx who want to stick it together" Poly-Styrene, front woman of the seminal band X-Ray Spex, has courted the attention of music lovers. Her lyrics take on issues such as environmentalism, consumerism and identity making her way ahead of her time. Following the release of 'Dayglo: The Poly Styrene Story' by Celeste Bell and Zoë Howe we speak to her daughter Celeste Bell and filmmaker Paul Sng (currently working on a film about her life) to find out more about our dayglo icon.
