X Ray Specs, by Falcon Stuart, 1978

Poly Styrene said the X Ray Spex were about "not trying to be like anybody else, but being yourself. High energy, youthful music, creativity. Better than expressing yourself through crime. Being in a band, saying what you want. It was better than being in a girl gang."

My sentiments exactly.
