    While saying goodbye to this goodly person I am reminded of my own exuberant excesses in past times, when youth fed the accelerator and good taste was left at the verge. I was once a member of the short lived band, Anna Rexia and the Nervosa. Anyone else had a punky past?

    am eternally grateful to her for ending the misconception that 'Some people think little girls should be seen and not heard' so bloody brilliantly.
    tears shed.

    Another one of my childhood heroes gone. Too soon.
  4. I was sad to hear of Poly Styrene's death - she'd obviously been ill for a long time. I thought she was awesome back in my youth - she made braces cool!
    Yes, I was a member of two little-known punk bands. The first was called Trexus-2 (in homage to Blake's 7 or something) which I *sang* in - we did gigs on the local circuit and earned enough to pay for the Spray Mount that helped my hair stand up on end. The second band's name complete escapes me but we didn't do any gigs, in fact we only did a few rehearsals before realising that the Oboe (I'm a first study oboeist) doesn't fit into the punk genre very well. We were ahead of our time I tell you!

    There are very few musicians who are/were/will be bonkers at various stages of their lives x
