I seem to be in the small minority that doesn't like X Ray Spex. Musically excellent, but sorry, just cant get away with the vocals.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I can understand that totally. For me though it was those vocals that gave the Spex their uniqueness. Just like the Pistols with Rotten. In the 70s this was a huge victory over all the Bonnie Tyler types of female singers.

Yeah totally. I can see what she brings to the table but it's just not for me personally.

Yeah I know we're a disco board and all but part of the appeal of punk was that it was open to anyone. You didn't have to be a virtuoso musician etc, nor what had previously been recognized as a good rock singer.

Yeah, I obviously get all that but sometimes a voice just doesn't do it for you.
