MM: Germ Free Adolescents by X-Ray Spex

As with many other punk bands, X-Ray Spex formed after lead singer, Poly Styrene (Marian Joan Elliott Said), attended a Sex Pistols gig. Styrene was joined by guitarist Jak Airport (Jack Stafford), bassist Paul Dean on bass, drummer Paul 'B. P.' Hurding on drums, and saxophonist Lora Logic (Susan Whitby). X-Ray Spex soon became a favourite act on the London punk scene.

The band signed to Virgin Records, releasing their first single, "Oh Bondage, Up Yours!" in October 1977. Over the course of the next year they released three more singles, each of which made it into the UK singles chart. The last of these, "Germ Free Adolescents", reached number 18 in November 1978. The same month that they released their hit album of the same name.
