Manchester Evening News: Manchester Pride 31 August, 2011
Comeback boyband Blue got the crowds dancing as they brought this year’s Manchester Pride Big Weekend musical extravaganza to a close. The hunky lads closed musical proceedings on Bank Holiday Monday fresh from their exploits in Eurovision.

Toyah wowed the crowds in her punk-tribal outfit and crown of pink hair. She told The Diary backstage: “This is an original outfit from 1981 that I wore on Top of the Pops and, thankfully, I still fit in it. But I get the hairpiece specially made these days – back then it would be all my own hair styled into those creations but would take an entire day.”

Financial Times: Life & Arts: Music: Party Like it's 1985 27 August, 2011
Today's 'Financial Times' Life & Arts features a huge article on the recent 'Rewind Festival', and 80's pop festivals in general. Toyah contributes and is also pictured on the front page of the print edition.

Why are we so enamoured of a brash decade of big hair and shoulder pads? The answer might be found at a popfest

... Toyah Willcox thinks it’s about “personality music”. “Everyone in the 1980s had huge personalities and I think that came across in the writing and the performing,” she says. Willcox, 1981 winner of Smash Hits’ “most fanciable female” award, first noticed signs of a 1980s revival about a decade ago. “The 1990s were quite tough doing gigs. Then around 2000 it got really serious. The gigs got bigger.”

Boyz: Willcox At Wig Out 23 August, 2011
A news article about one of Toyah's forthcoming PAs is included in the latest issue of 'Boyz' magazine.

TBB has learnt that 80s pop goddess TOYAH WILLCOX is planning a performance of her latest track 'Fallen' at Wig Out next month.

We also know that Paul Masterson - he of Yomanda, Candy Girls, Hi-Gate (with Judge Jules) and many other aliases - has written and produced the track. Paul's previously worked with Kylie and Boy George too, so this next title is bound to be a hit.

And what's more, GaydarRadio DJ Phil Marriott made the song his 'Anthem of the Week' last week.

Toyah's filming the video to 'Fallen' in Norway early next month too, so expect some exclusive shots gracing these pages soon!

With Heart Breakfast's Michelle on stage introducing the likes of Hue and Cry, The Village People, Billy Ocean, Bananarama and Bucks Fizz on Saturday and Heart Drivetime's Gareth James on stage Sunday with the likes of Toyah, Go West, Candi Staton and The Human League, it was another amazing weekend.

A little bit of rain on Saturday didn't put anyone off, with 20,000 people descending on Henley each day, and enjoying the glorious sunshine for the rest of the weekend.

We had our cameras out in force, so why not re-live the festival via the photos below, and if weren't there see what you could be doing this time next year!

I Was A Teenage Toyah Fan: FB Top Ten Faq 22 August, 2011
The 'I Was A Teenage Toyah Fan' Facebook has added a "Top Ten Faq", answering questions like: When's it coming out? (The autumn. I am hoping during the final leg of the Toyah's Sheep Farming to Anthem tour as there would be a certain pleasing symmetry about that), how long is it? ( the region of 30,000 - 50,000 words), and what's inside? (Mainly text, although there will be some illustrations).

The Power Of Three: Press Release 19 August, 2011
A chick flick for the older woman

The official press screening for The Power of Three - where three older women come together to show you are never too late to fulfil your dreams. Starring Toyah Willcox and 60s bombshell Margaret Nolan (Goldfinger).

The Power Of Three

A feel good movie for women of a certain age.

So far we've had a hot Diane Keaton in Something's Gotta Give, a naked Helen Mirren in Calendar Girls, and Meryl Streep as an inspirational business woman in It's Complicated. Now The Power of Three brings us not one, but three women of a certain age – three strong, humorous women who all have an unfulfilled dream but find themselves stuck...until they come to harness The Power of Three.

Guardian: Film Blog: Quadrophenia 19 August, 2011
Quadrophenia was the subject of yesterday's Film Blog in the 'Guardian', comparing the Mod riots of the Swinging Sixties with the scripted riots of the film with the recent idiotic UK riots... sort of!

Quadrophenia: back when Britain's youngsters ran riot

Teenagers take to the streets and Britain erupts in moral panic – why does Franc Roddam's 1979 cult classic feel so familiar?

Director: Franc Roddam | Entertainment grade: B | History grade: A–

Between 1964 and 1966, teenagers rioted in British seaside towns. Violence flared between mods and rockers, two youth movements that were connected in the press with drug-taking, vandalism and delinquency.

The Humans: UK Dates Announced Today 19 August, 2011
The eagerly awaited UK live dates for The Humans will be officially announced and confirmed today.

Keep an eye on Toyah's Official Facebook and for updates.

Stereoboard: The Humans Announce UK Dates 19 August, 2011

The Humans, the experimental band project featuring R.E.M's Bill Reiflin, Toyah Willcox and Chris Wong have announced two UK shows for October.

The Humans were formed after Toyah Willcox was asked to tour Estonia by the Estonian ambassador back in 2006. Wilcox formed the band and proceeded to showcase their material during three live shows in Estonia in Autumn 2007. The three shows, which were attended by many governmental dignitaries including the Estonian president, sold-out in under 24 hours!

According to Toyah Willcox's official website, “The Humans are an experimental band project, featuring Bill Rieflin (R.E.M.), Toyah Willcox and Chris Wong. According to, "The Humans live show is song based but the songs are deconstructed down to the bones of raw experience exposing human nature and irony. Comparisons are always misleading but if The White Stripes met with the vocal adventures of Lou Reed, Kate Bush, Gabriel and Beefheart then you might get a flavour of things to come..."

The Humans will see the American release of the album 'Sugar Rush' on 27th September.

The Humans UK Live Dates are as follows:

October 2011
Oct 4th - Ruby Lounge, Manchester
Oct 6th – Bush Hall, Shepherds Bush, London

The Humans tickets are onsale from 9am on Friday 19th August.
Creative Loafing: Bill Rieflin is Moonlighting 19 August, 2011
R.E.M. drummer Bill Rieflin is moonlighting as one of two bass players on the album Sugar Rush, the second offering from Toyah Willcox's avant-garde rock trio the Humans. Willcox is a British actress, author, musician and wife to Roxy Music guitarist and prog god Robert Fripp. Sugar Rush is due to drop Sept. 27 via Seattle label the End Records. Although the group's lineup is technically rounded out by Willcox, Rieflin, and fellow bass player Chris Wong, Fripp lends his guitar work to each of the album's 13 tracks. Keep an eye out for more U.S. tour dates, which should be announced soon.
Classic Toyah: TV Times (1982) 18 August, 2011
A voyage round Toyah Willcox: By Jane Ennis / Pictures Brian Aris. Published on 25th April 1982.

Toyah Willcox, actress, rock star and cult figure - the wearer of black leather-studded clothes, flame-coloured hair and death-mask make up - says that her appearance has 'nothing to do with gimmicks. I'm obsessed with the idea of alien breeds and what we may all look like in the future. The way we are experimenting with genetics fascinates me. Crossbreeds. Mutations. Great!' The 4ft 11in dynamo is settling in for an all-night recording session at a north London studio. Dressed as ever in black, she plonks herself heavily in a chair and puts her chunky forearms on the table in front of her: a solid, purposeful figure swigging wine out of a paper cup. 'The way I chose to look a few years ago used to frighten people. I was about three stone heavier and very broad. I was like a muscle woman. Taxis wouldn't stop for me. Conductors wouldn't let me on the bus. At one stage I had all my hair shaved off the back of my head, leaving long points at the sides. My mother chased me out of the house.'

Pat Sharpe wigs, wooden gypsy caravans, themed bars, cup cakes and inflatable microphones are the order of the day at the music event dubbed 'the perfect festival for people who don't normally go to festivals'.

Classic Toyah: Hot Press (1981): 30 From Toyah 16 August, 2011
Time for some more "Classic Toyah". Toyah was on the cover of, and interviewed in, 'Hot Press' twice in 1981. This is the first, from 17th April of that year.

Tara Winter Uncovers The Many Faces Behind The Make-Up

1) Toyah is a dilletante, dabbling in fashionable performance arts for sheer self-gratification.

2) Toyah is a violent sub-cult, fronted by a spitting vixen, getting her kicks from other people's boots.

3) Toyah is an egomaniac, keeping the musicians in her group in neutral tones, in the dark, out of the picture.

4) Toyah is arrogant, difficult, unreliable, and wears all that make-up to hide acne.

Did you spot the deliberate mistake? Stay behind, anyone
who realised that all of the above are untrue, and I'll teach you to dance the mashed potato.

When we met on a still-foggy Belfast morning, Toyah was already wide awake, sitting with utter composure amid the bleary salesmen and snaking hoovers that characterise preprandial hotels. We would talk for half an hour, please, and then there was a plane to catch. Tom, Toyah's boyfriend/minder, set the alarm on his watch...

I Was A Teenage Toyah Fan: Facebook 15 August, 2011
The forthcoming book 'I Was A Teenage Toyah Fan' now has a Facebook page.

Originally a series of blog entries, this memoir about the experience of being an obsessive fan of Toyah Willcox in the early eighties will be published in book form in Autumn 2011

From 1986 until its closure, Chris ran the official Toyah Willcox Fan Club Tellurian as well as designing and selling merchandise during Toyah's extensive tours in the early nineties.

This is not that story.

This is the story of what happened before that and one that begins on a dark winter's night at the tail end of 1979...

Saturday Live: Toyah's 'Secret Life' 14 August, 2011
Toyah guested on yesterday morning's Saturday Live on 'BBC Radio 4'. Talking about meteorites, and more, in their 'Secret Life' series.

Richard Coles with critic Tom Dyckhoff, poet Kate Fox, paralysed rugby star Matt Hampson, designer Kenneth Grange, Toyah Willcox's Secret Life and Steve James' Inheritance Tracks.

Richard introduced Toyah thus: Do you remember the safety pin divas, the short and sweaty summer of Punk? Siouxsie Sioux, the late lamented Poly Styrene, Laura Logic and occupying a slightly different place the actor and singer Toyah Willcox.

Today she is well known as a writer and television presenter too, perhaps the only person to have presented both the Good Sex Guide and Songs Of Praise. Back then as Miranda she rattled and lisped her way through Derek Jarman’s marvellous punky version of The Tempest and it was she who skipped up and down on a spot in pixie boots singing 'It’s A Mystery' on Top Of The Tops. Well, mystery no longer for here she is in confessional mood.

There were also plays of clips of 'This Belongs To You' by The Humans and 'It's A Mystery'.

Saturday Live is available, until next Saturday morning, to listen to again at BBC
iPlayer (Toyah appears approximately 25 minutes in). There's also a podcast of the programme for download. 'The Toyah Willcox Interview Archive' also has a full transcript of Toyah's 'Secret Life'. View here.

Pop star Toyah leads drive to bring back kids' TV hero Brum

Pop star and actress Toyah Willcox is backing a campaign to bring Birmingham’s most famous TV car back to the small screen. Superhero motor Brum was based on an Austin 7 Chummy convertible and five series were produced by Ragdoll Productions from 91 until the show ended in 02.

Singer Toyah even penned her support for the drive to get Brum back on TV. She said: “Happy birthday Brum. This feisty, adventurous little car has entertained millions of children worldwide for two decades and deserves his best birthday yet.

“Wherever I go in the world people tell me their children grew up watching Brum. His go-getting nature has encouraged children to be confident and his wheels have spread the name of Birmingham across the UK and many other places in the world. You are a brave little car!”

The Artrix in Bromsgrove, where Toyah and 'From Sheep Farming To Anthem' played last month, hold a Quadrophenia night this evening.

QUADROPHENIA NIGHT 2: This unique event returns for a second year offering fans of British film, the music of the 1960s and the youth movement known as ‘Mod’ an opportunity relive some of the most culturally significant moments in post-war British history.

Quadrophenia Night II will combine a screening of Franc Roddam’s cult classic movie with a live music experience featuring performances by two top bands.

To help add to the atmosphere we invite you to attend dressed in the styles of the era depicted in the film and display your scooters and motorcycles on the theatre forecourt.
Sunday Times: Home: Punk Shock 13 August, 2011
Although Toyah tweeted in early June that she had just completed a photo session for a feature with 'Sunday Times', this cover feature for their 'Home' section, published on 17th July, seems to have come and gone with no fanfare.

Punk Shock: Revealed: Toyah's Secret Passion For Antique Furniture

A House Built On Rock: Richard Barber visits the oddly genteel home of the former punk Toyah Willcox and her guitar hero husband...

The magazine featured a two-page article, complete with a Toyah interview and a selection of photos of Toyah, Robert and their home, as well as a small classic Toyah shot.

• This is the second occasion that Toyah has been the cover star of 'Home'. She previously featured on their cover back in May 2004.
Uber Rock: Rebellion Festival 2011: Review 13 August, 2011
'Uber Rock' have a comprehensive review of the 'Rebellion Festival 2011', including an interesting take on Toyah's 'From Sheep Farming To Anthem' set, from a, self confessed, non fan Ian Bell.

I had been looking forward to catching Toyah live as she was always one of those artists from my youth that I quite admired but would never have claimed to be a massive fan of, but with classic
songs such as 'Mystery' and 'I Want To Be Free', an acting career including a role in the classic film Quadraphenia it would be simply rude not to catch her live at Rebellion, there is the day time and naff TV show appearances but there's no need to mention them is there.

The heavy hitters from the classic 'Anthem' album such as 'Demolition Men', 'Obsolete', and 'Thunder In The Mountains' raised the crowd from its keyboard induced paralasys and rightfully gained the applause deserved. And with an encore that included both 'It's A Mystery' which went down extremely well as did 'Danced' the disappointment was we didn't get 'I Want To Be Free' or 'Good Morning Universe', but that's me just being picky. Toyah certainly lived up to her reputation her tonight and continued to divide the opinions of those who witnessed her set. I mean is she a (former) pop star, is she an actress, or is she as she once so elquently put it "a Punk Rock icon?" I'm perhaps not the one to answer that million dollar question, but maybe you are?

Gaydar Radio: Paul Masterson Interview/'Fallen' First Play 11 August, 2011
Toyah, Paul Masterson & Dave Pemberton | Photo © ToyahWillcox.comThe producer of 'Fallen', by Yomanda feat Toyah, Paul Masterson was interviewed on The Phil Marriott Show on 'Gaydar Radio' earlier this evening. Paul also introduced the first worlwide play of ''Fallen'.

An angel's fallen through... the edge of time

Phil Marriott: It's a very exciting time for you, because you're about to unleash this big beast called 'Fallen', which of course is your collaboration with Toyah.

Paul Masterson: Yeah, indeed, absolutely. Well I've been an absolutely massive fan. I remember buying Toyah's records when I was still living in Belfast, like '81, '82, '83, and it was one of those artists I've always had my eye on to write a song with, and a few months ago I sent her an instrumental piece and she absolutely loved it, and then we got together in the studio about a month or so ago and we recorded the vocals. I've just spent a few weeks mixing it, and it's all finished and ready to go, pretty much.

• Read a full transcript of the interview
here. 'Fallen' is Phil's "Anthem Of The Week". Response to tonight's first play was so strong that Phil played it again at the end of his show, and he will play it again on Club Nation tomorrow night. A preview of 'Fallen' can also be heard at Soundcloud.

Put The Needle On The Record: New Book 11 August, 2011
'Put the Needle on the Record: The 1980s at 45 Revolutions Per Minute' by Matthew Chojnacki, is available from 28th August by Schiffer Publishing.

The book features classic 7 and 12" single artwork from the 80's. The 'Facebook' page for this included Toyah's 'Ieya' 12" cover so that may possibly be featured.

In the 1980s, music defined the moment: "Video Killed the Radio Star" ushered in MTV, "Don't You (Forget about Me)" ruled The Breakfast Club, and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" became the anthem of a generation. The 1980s were also the most visually provocative era of the last millennium. Every new vinyl single hit the stands wrapped in eye-catching sleeves that reflected the latest trends.

Put the Needle on the Record is pop culture historian Matthew Chojnacki's definitive guide to 7- and 12-inch vinyl single artwork from the '80s. He presents and compares more than 250 vinyl single covers, representing nearly every prominent musician of the decade. Read the previously untold stories behind the 1980s' most iconic images from the designers and visual talent behind Madonna, Prince, Adam Ant, Pink Floyd, Queen, The Clash, Pet Shop Boys, Kate Bush, and more.

Coupled with exclusive commentary from more than 100 of the '80s biggest musicians, including Annie Lennox, Duran Duran, Run-DMC, Gary Numan, The B-52's, Erasure, OMD, Scorpions, The Knack, and Yoko Ono, this is an authoritative journey back to the songs and images that continue to influence our culture.

Contains a foreword by Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters and an afterword by Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran.

Windsor Express: Review: Here and Now Tour - Ascot 10 August, 2011
Heart-throbs and hairstyles of the 1980s were indulged by thousands at the after party of an afternoon at the races on Saturday, writes Nicola Hine.

Musical memories were revived for many as the popular 'Here and Now' tour rolled into Ascot, attracting everything from squealing hen parties armed with launchable underwear to families with young children.

... Resplendent as ever in a red and orange cape, Toyah delighted fans from underneath a mohican-style hairpiece which would give even Gaga a run for her money.

Wetherby News: Harrogate Fringe Puts Town On 'Cool' List 10 Aug, 2011
One night in Harrogate two weeks ago at exactly the same time, writes Graham Chalmers, 'indie' singer Edwyn Collins was performing with a quintet from the Scottish Philharmonic Orchestra at an art exhibition in Cold Bath Road, Toyah Willcox was bounding on stage in an outrageous costume at Harrogate Theatre, a weird and wonderful post-rock band from London called Teeth of the Sea were sound checking at Katana bar at the back of Debenhams and cult icon and author Howard Marks was giving a talk about crime writing and his drug dealing past at the Old Swan Hotel.

At that precise moment Harrogate was probably the most happening place in the UK, outside of London. This unlikely scenario was partly the result of the Fringe and partly the result of Harrogate International Festival which gave birth to the Fringe.

Louder Than War: The Playlist: Rebellion 2011 9 August, 2011
Excellent feedback for Toyah's 'From Sheep Farming To Anthem' set, at the Rebellion Festival on Friday, from the 'Louder Than War' website.

The Louder Than War Playlist
Each week we present ‘Six Of The Best’ – the six tracks that are getting our feet tapping here at LTW Towers… They can be brand new; they can be old – either way they are vying for space on the stereo!!

This weekend LTW decamped to Blackpool for the Rebellion Festival – so this week the playlist is comprised of ten bands (well six wouldn’t be enough!) who provided some festival highlights.

Playlist W/C 8th August 2011
Toyah ‘Ieya’ – Toyah took to the stage Friday night and played a set of predominately early material including ‘Ieya’ which was first released by Safari Records in May 1980 – none of the YouTube clips adequately demonstrate just how good this was.

Toyah @ 'Here & Now Ascot 2011' #3 9 August, 2011

For me personally the top performances came from Toyah, Altered Images and Jimmy Somerville. The former did not disappoint came out strong and continued on from there. View here.

Closer (2005) / First (2007): Toyah Looks Back 7 August, 2011
Toyah has been successfully recreating some of her past looks, while updating them for 2011, recently for the 'From Sheep Farming To Anthem' tour and selected other live dates. Back in April 2005 and January 2007 Toyah looked back at a couple of her 80s images for 'Closer' and 'First' magazines.

Closer: Back To The 80's: "I've wanted a facelift for 20 years. It changed my life for the better. When I look in the mirror, I see the energetic and feminine person I feel like inside. Not some woman past her prime."

Of the 'Be Proud' recreation Toyah commented: "I wouldn't be able to do this if I hadn't had the surgery. I'd look like a desperate woman trying to recreate something long-gone. Instead, it feels a bit mad - but good."

First: Back To The Future: "The '80s were an amazing time to be a pop star. I was only 23 when I hit the big time, so it was incredibly exciting.

I had very clear ideas about my image and how I wanted to look - as you can see from this photo. It took all day to get the make-up right. It was shot for my official Christmas card in 1981. I sent out 10,000 copies to all the members of my fan club and I had to hand sign them all. That's dedication.

Back then pop was a real boy's club and female singers were supposed to look very pretty and feminine, but I had other ideas. And so did Hazel O'Connor and Siouxsie Banshee. Together we did our own punk thing and everyone loved it. It wasn't about stylists then, we put our own looks together and lived and died by them.

When I stopped singing, I branched out into acting and presenting - I feel like a classic all-rounder now. I'm a bit of a workaholic and I'd hate to be sitting around doing nothing. I had a facelift a couple of years ago. It really boosted my confidence and it's helped me stay working in an industry that's obsessed with looks. I'll carry on working as long as I'm still in demand."

The Humans: Sugar Rush: Samples @ Amazon 6 August, 2011

'Amazon' now have the album listed as a forthcoming release, and not only that they also have short audio samples of each song, including the bonus track 'Small Town Psycopath (Full Mix Version)'.

This sounds like it is going to be a great album. Toyah's vocals are incredible. I already love 'Sweet Agitation' and 'Snow At 10.23' just from the samples.

Praise for Rewind crowds amid hints it may be back

The organiser of the Rewind Festival, which saw more than 20,000 descend on Scone Palace, has said he was delighted with the event. Director David Heartfield told The Courier the 1980s event went "brilliantly" and did not rule out a return to Perthshire.

Audrey Orr said, "It's been great. We were one of the first in the queue to arrive and one of the last to leave. I've heard that it may be back in two years' time and we'll definitely get tickets for it. For me Billy Ocean stole the show and Kim Wilde was brilliant on Sunday. Toyah Willcox was also great."

The Music Fix: Rewind Scotland 2011 Review 4 August, 2011
Rewind Scotland - Day Two - A Review In Pictures

Rewind Scotland is a boutique festival that celebrates the best in 80's Pop music. The first Rewind event was originally launched in Henley-on-Thames in 2009, with the Scottish bash joining it's brother as it moves into it's third
year at Henley.

All in all the music on offer wasn't as appealing to me as the previous day but there were a quartet of performances that really stood out from the rest, with colourful Pop Icon Toyah's set a joy to shoot as she struck several great poses while blasting out hits like "I want to be free" and "It's a mystery", watched from the pit by husband Robert Fripp...

But there are others, like Martin Fry (ABC) and China Crisis who we’ve met doing festivals and got quite friendly with them." Read the full interview here.

Hairdressers Journal: Toyah Brings Pink Streaks Back 3 August, 2011
Toyah Willcox Brings Pink Streaks Back

Singer Toyah Willcox headlined at the 80s Revival festival in Perth, Scotland this weekend - and although her retro set-list may have been a blast from the past, her colourful hairstyle felt surprisingly modern.

Pastel hues and grungy streaks remain hot colour trends for the new season and Toyah's baby pink shade works perfectly with her creamy blonde tones - she could have stepped right out of London's famously colourful salon, Bleach!

Of course Toyah is no stranger to colourful hair, having been a trailblazing trend-setter throughout the 80s with her paintbox-bright locks and experimental styling. Here's a previous pink look from the punk princess: While the feathering might be forgettable, this raspberry ripple hue feels decidedly modern.

Blackpool Gazette: Punk's Back Again 3 August, 2011
The punks are back in town... with the world’s biggest punk festival returning to Blackpool from Thursday until Sunday this week.

Organisers claim it’s the best bill yet for the annual event – with around 200 bands and other acts taking over the entire Winter Gardens complex.

And with a line-up including punk legends Cock Sparrer’s only UK appearance this year as well as The Adcits, Jello Biafra from the Dead Kennedys, Toyah, Pennywise, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and The Damned heading to the resort, the Rebellion festival is as diverse as ever.

Proving that punk rock is a varied genre linked by a common cause, Rebellion is the only punk festival which sees 1977 legends sharing the stages with the likes of Rancid member Lard Frederiksen’s new side project Old Firm Casuals and a whole raft of young up coming punk bands – and even Eric Faulkner’s Bay City Rollers.

Dreamscape Audio/Video: In The Psychiatrist's Chair 2 August, 2011
Toyah guested on BBC Radio Four's In The Psychiatrist's Chair in September 1992. A fascinating interview with, the late, Dr Anthony Clare.

Rewind Scotland: Toyah News Round Up 2 August, 2011
Toyah tweeted yesterday: "Rewind scotland was fabulous! 20,000 devotees of 1980s!". Her short set-list at the festival was: Thunder In The Mountains, Echo Beach, It's A Mystery, I Want To Be Free.

STV: Organisers hail success of Scone 80s music festival: The Rewind festival saw nearly 25,000 revellers turn back the years at Scone Palace over the weekend.

Organisers of an 80s music festival held near Perth are considering a return to the area after almost 25,000 turned out for the event. Rewind saw thousands of revellers turn back the years at Scone Palace at the weekend. Festival bosses revealed that an estimated 12,000 turned out on both Saturday and Sunday to see some of the biggest acts of the decades.

Toyah Willcox, The Human League and former Spandau Ballet lead singer Tony Hadley were
among the acts who entertained the crowds. ( | 01 August 2011)

Herald Scotland: Rewind, Scone Palace, Perth: It helped, of course, that the sun beat down upon the well-appointed site below the home of the earls of Mansfield and historic Scottish coronation spot. But it was just as important, I'd guess, that this was a festival where the women outnumbered the men (although the costuming made it hard to tell one from the other), the age range was as all-encompassing as it could be, and there were as many happy families as hen parties, alongside random mixed gender-groups of Smurfs and superheroes.

... Sunday's line-up built more progressively with The Real Thing's acapella exchanges with the crowd and Toyah's remarkable hair notable waymarks towards a lavish finale by The Human League, which ran the full gamut from Being Boiled to Night People by way of all the hits we came to hear. (Keith Bruce, | 02 August 2011))

The Courier: Sun, songs and silliness... Rewind Festival had the lot: Massive hair, outlandish costumes, garish dayglo underwear, silver suits, thousands of tanked up, happy people, a 92-year-old fan, a cross-dressing wedding couple and even a successful marriage proposal — the 80s Rewind Festival at Scone Palace had it all.

Hit after hit came from 25 acts from the 1980s who set out to prove it definitely was not the decade music forgot. The audience agreed, with 20,000 people over the weekend loving the sounds of the Human League, ABC, Kim Wilde, Heaven 17, Billy Ocean, Toyah Willcox, Nik Kershaw, Imagination, China Crisis, The Real Thing and Scots heroes The Bluebells, Hue & Cry and Perth's own Fiction Factory.

Toyah Willcox strode off with the most extravagant outfit of the weekend, telling the audience her sideways multi-coloured Mohican took 20 bottles of hairspray and a lot of fake hair, and her looks 20 years of plastic surgery. (Alan Wilson, | 01 August 2011)

Bob The Tog: Toyah @ The Scottish Rewind Festival: My favourite act to photograph of the entire weekend was Toyah. The music was strange but the amount of colour and life on stage was excellent.
