Susan Whitby, aka Lora Logic was one of the most distinctive talents from the post-punk era known for her intoxicating, exhilarating sax playing and haywire vocal style. In 1976, with her friend Poly StyrenE she formed X-Ray Spex and acquired the pseudonym, Lora Logic. The duo soon achieved notoriety with the irresistible single, "Oh Bondage Up Yours" (1977) . However, just prior to recording Germ Free Adolescents (1978), X-Ray Spex's debut album, she found herself unexpectedly ousted from the band. With abundant enthusiasm she went on to form Essential Logic. 50 essential recordings from the irresistibly engaging Lora Logic archive, allowing for a new generation to become aware of her incredible creative output.
