Dayglo: The Poly Styrene Story
Wednesday 12 June, 7pm
Poly Styrene was a singer- songwriter, an artist, a free-thinker, a post-modern style pioneer and a lifelong spiritual seeker: a true punkicon. Here, for the first time, the vibrant jigsaw of Poly’s inspiring and often moving story has been lovingly pieced together by her daughter, singer- songwriter Celeste Bell, and writer/artist Zoë Howe.
From growing up mixed-race in Brixton in the 1960s, to being at the forefront of the emerging punk scene with X-Ray Spex in the 1970s, to finding faith with the Hare Krishna movement, to balancing single motherhood with a solo music career and often debilitating mental health issues, the book honestly and openly explores Poly’s exceptional life, up until her untimely passing in 2011.
