X-RAY SPEX - Identity

1978; remixed 2010

Not sure what the remixer did but this sounds harder and slightly faster than the official release, which is so smoothed down and tricked up it barely sounds like punk. (As I recall, the sax was twice as loud as any of the other instruments.) Poly Styrene, lead vocalist, was one of the very few female punk rockers of African descent.
