Poly Styrene - Talk In Toytown


On this date in 1980, Poly Styrene released her debut solo single, "Talk In Toytown". It was backed by "Sub Tropical". Both tracks appeared on her debut solo album, Translucence. Poly Styrene had formerly been the lead singer of X-Ray Spex. She became a Hare Krishna soon afterwards and her musical career slowed considerably. She reunited with X-Ray Spex in 1995 to release the band's second album, Conscious Consumer, their first since 1978.
