I've just read the other reviews before I write this & wouldn't necessarily disagree with most thats been written, good & bad, so here's my view on it.

Firstly, I saw Xrayspex many many times in my punk days & I was at this particular Roundhouse gig a ouple of years ago & I enjoyed them all, perhaps for different reasons but had fun all the same.

So, upside, all the songs you'd expect were played, not that there was a huge back catalogue to draw on but anyone going would have heard pretty much anything they might have expected.

The atmosphere was great, the love, happiness & excititement all made for a genuinely electric buzz. I suppose what was missing was that air of danger in early punk gigs, not often you find it these days with the possible exception of fairly recent Specials & Stray Cats gigs t Brixton Academy.

Like any live CD DVD, these recordings don't give you a true idea of what the gig was like but is it enjoyable, yes, absolutely.

Anyway, Poly wasn't the same as she was 30 years ago, nor were most of the audience so why should she be? Having said that, the vocal performane & the way the band played was fairly raw, somewhat shambolic & unrehearsed, just how it should be & it added to the experience & certainly made me smile & I think it safe to say, most of the people ther had a bloody great night out, just likecwe did first time around.

If you are thinking of buying this, log on to youtube, listen to & watch a couple of songs & if you like it, buy it. Or if you are reading these reviews, just buy it anyway, you've come this far!

Poly, thank you & bless your heart for making my life more colourful.

This was a birthday concert for me. I always liked X-ray Spex, but had low expectations for the gig. It was amazing!!! Why, I really don't know. But everything seemed right from the beginning. The crowd looked good. They looked happy. (Two peculiarities for the average London gig I attend.) And that was before the wonderful Poly came on. It was such a good concert I even snaked my way down to the front, or near enough, and pogo'd like it was 1979.

This is a great cd / dvd. Like Patti Smith, Poly Styrene's voice actually sounds a bit better with age. Buy it and remind yourself what a great bunch of songs X-ray Spex put out.

By the way, my phone fell out of my pocket whilst I was thrashing about. Did anybody find it? I guess it doesn't really matter. After all, that was what punk was all about - losing your mobile, but not caring. Wasn't it?

Loved xray spex from the first time i heard them, collected all the cds once they came out, Its great to have a dvd of poly and the spex live, shame the nrg isnt there like it would have been back in the day but nice to see her sing the songs in a different way never the less! I hope they bring a dvd out of poly doing the songs live in the way we remember, but this is a must for any xray spex fan, and its great to see poly do the encore with her daughter at the end... I must also say the new album is fantastic just wish we could have seen her on dvd doing them track as a more mature artist.. RIP poly
