X-Ray Spex, one of the early punk bands out of London in the 70’s, is best known for the classic song “Oh Bondage Up Yours” and their only studio album from that era, Germ Free Adolescents.

The band briefly reformed in the 90’s.

Poly Styrene, the lead singer, plans to release a solo album in March and has also recorded a Christmas song.

According to her website, “Black Christmas was written by Poly and her daughter Celeste who features on the recording and was inspired by news about a killer in Los Angeles dressing up as Santa Claus”.

“Black Christmas” is a free download and is the first of a number of Christmas songs to be featured here in the days ahead.
