Formed in 1976, X-Ray Spex and singer Poly Styrene are considered punk icons, and their first album, "Germ Free Adolescents" is a classic.
The band broke up in 1979, only to re-form in 1995 and release one more album, "Conscious Consumer."
This release is from a second comeback gig in 2008 at London's Roundhouse, where they played their debut album nearly in its entirety.
