The sophomore & final studio album from the punk icons - lovingly compiled & remastered from the original master tapes.

Available on LP for the first time ever (having only previously been on a limited CD run in 1995)! The album reunited the iconic X-Ray Spex vocalist, Poly Styrene, with original saxophonist, Lora Logic, & bassist, Paul Dean - as well as guitar from Kula Shaker frontman, Crispian Mills, under his then pseudonym, Red Spectre. 

Pop culture is full of classic albums that slip between the cracks. In recent years, the late Poly Styrene & X-Ray Spex have achieved iconic status with their 1978 debut ‘Germfree Adolescents’ album but the group’s follow up album, 'Conscious Consumer’ - released 17 years later - has been lost to the sands of time.
 

The band are now revered worldwide for sparking a new kind of attitude in music. The late Poly is now a pop culture pin-up for an originality & feminism that barely existed at the time. Her acerbic, witty & brilliant lyrics & distinctive voice have stood the test of time.
 
Listening to the album again after a long break, Paul Dean is surprised: “‘Conscious Consumer’ now sounds so much better than I remember. It wasn’t properly released at the time and so no one knows about it. If you love ‘Germfree Adolescents’, you will love ‘Conscious Consumer’; they are linked together. X-Ray Spex didn’t have just one great album, it was two!”
