X-Ray Spex: Oh Bondage! Up Yours!

Chas de Whalley, Sounds, 22 October 1977

"IF SOMEBODY said I was a sex symbol, I'd shave me'ead tomorrer," cackled Poly Styrene. "'Oh Bondage Up Yours' ain't about sex particularly. In fact I don't even think of myself as a girl when I'm on stage. I think I'm sexless. Girls that go and flaunt themselves on stage are using the oldest and the cheapest trick in the book. I'm just me. I just do what I feel like. Do Anything You Wanna Do. Individualism. That's what it's all about, isn't it?"
