Poly Styrene Generation Indigo Drawing

A Message from Shirin Koohyar at Future Noise Music
Hi Everyone, after days of still trying to gather my thoughts on what to write here on such an exceptional person and a very close dear friend, I’m still struggling as there is so much…but there are two things that keep repeatedly coming into my mind, ‘Angel’ and Poly’s wonderful mom, ‘Joan’.

So I just want to say that Poly remains the wonderful voiced Angel that I first met some years ago, here to help us think daily towards being conscious, caring, forgiving and responsible human beings, without being ‘anti’ anything, through her unique beautiful spirit and genius lyrics.

There are no doubts in my mind that Poly is being rewarded royally for all that she has done and left us with, and I know she’s spreading her beautiful wings freely, playfully and so much much wider.

It takes an incredibly special woman to have given birth to this Angel, so my never ending thanks to Joan for bringing Poly into this world for us all to connect with.

I regularly read all the facebook and twitter comments to Poly and to each and everyone, in her beautiful innocent voice and genuinely surprised tone she would reply “Ahhh isn’t that nice, that’s so positive!” I can still hear her saying this every time I see your comments and I really hope that you can too.

Once again, thanks to ALL of Poly’s extended friends and fans, and in particular to a few, you know who you are, for your support on Poly’s facebook and twitter especially through this difficult period. Poly’s team will soon get back to hard work here to carry on making sure that her genius messages and last body of work reaches the deserved places that it needs to get to.

Whilst I know there are so many of you who would love to attend Poly’s funeral to pay your respects, it is her family’s wish to keep it a private intimate one, and we have to honour this. So wherever that you may be, I’m sure you’ll be able to connect with Poly in your own way, please do so this coming Thursday 12th of May when her funeral will be taking place at 3pm UK time.

We’ll soon start working on a tribute concert to take place some time late September, early October this year in London and will keep you all posted on any developments with that once we get some headway into it.

Poly’s sweet innocent voice and infectious boisterous laugh will remain in my ears forever, as well as one of her greatest quotes in a recent interview she did with Dave Simpson, so I’m going to end this note with that and extend my love and warmest wishes to you all, Shirin – Future Noise Music

“You remember that old song ‘Que Sera Sera, Whatever will be, will be, the future’s not ours to see’? I’ve always felt that. It’s been a rollercoaster ride, but I wouldn’t change a thing.” Poly Styrene, March 2011
