UK punk band formed in 1976. After singer Poly Styrene left in 1979 to pursue other interests the band auditioned for a new singer and changed their name to Classix Nouveaux.
Band was re-formed in 1991 for a short while but had a rather indifferent reception, but then re-formed again in 1995 and has played live every now and then since.
Mari Elliott (Poly Styrene) died of cancer at the age of 53 in 2011.
The estate of the late Poly Styrene is managed by her daughter, Celeste Bell together with I.E Music.
