Turn the World Dayglo


“Based on interviews with those who knew and loved Poly whether personally or through music, this oral history book includes testimonies from Vivienne Westwood, Don Letts, Glen Matlock, Jonathan Ross and many others.”


Poly Styrene was a singer-songwriter, an artist, a free-thinker, a post-modern style pioneer and a lifelong spiritual seeker: a true punk icon. Co-written by Celeste Bell, the daughter of Poly Styrene, and Zoe Bell, Turn the World Dayglo: The Creative Life of Poly Styrene is a dayglo strewn account of the life of Poly and her influence as a woman in music.

If you’re interested in the punk rock music scene, we also recommend: Revenge of the She-Punks by Vivien Goldman and Amy Winehouse: A Life through the Lens by Dareen and Elliott Bloom

Here at Underground we have always been forward in the promotion of Women in Music. So, it makes sense that we have made efforts to curate a wider selection of books & prints that focus on Women in Music, whether it’s about the indie scene, the punk scene or the rock scene.

Surely, we have popular titles that you might expect, such as Patti Smith: A Biography or Dayglo: The Poly Styrene Story, but also the work of photographers Sheila Rock and Janette Beckman and the autobiography of the girl of Punk, Jordan. From female-fronted bands to female punk icons, let’s take time to examine and celebrate the success of these female musicians.
