by Barry Walters

As Day-Glo frontwoman of London's X-Ray Spex, Poly Styrene penned punk's ultimate consumer-culture critique, Germ Free Adolescents. Thirty-three years later, teaming with producer Youth (the Verve, the Orb) while also battling breast cancer, she presides over an atom-sharp array of digital dance rock, reggae, and ye olde buzz-saw guitar and sax. Whether deleting Internet suitors ("Virtual Boyfriend") or celebrating cruelty-free footwear ("I Luv Ur Sneakers"), her street-smart squeak and plastic-fantastic perspective are undimmed, now buoyed by a heartfelt bene-ficence.
