Once again this year, Ross and I had the pleasure of interviewing a number of acts at Rewind South. This is our sixth year of attending this family-friendly, feel-good festival and, despite the number of times we have been, there were still a number of artists that we had not yet had a chance to speak with.
Toyah Wilcox was a lady who I had a respectful fear of (if that makes sense?!). She was definitely different and, to me, was definitely the first instance of ‘girl power’ that I came across. Famous not only for her hits ‘It’s a Mystery’ and ‘I Want To Be Free’, she also had incredible individual style. Her career has spanned over 38 years Toyah is a uniquely gifted performer. Charismatic, outspoken and impossible to categorise, she is one of Britain’s iconic household names – an award-winning rock legend as well as a much-loved actress and music composer. In 2014 she topped the Itunes Rock chart with her American band The Humans. This year see’s more releases and more touring!
In this interview, I put 5 questions to Toyah – with very interesting responses and a surprise appearance from Ross at the end with an anecdote which meant he received an invite which he wished he didn’t have to refuse!
