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.
