Dundee Evening Telegraph: Rewind Scotland

July 28th, 2015

rewind15dA decade of music and four seasons of weather were rolled into one at Rewind Festival at the weekend.

But neither the hail, rain nor wind could dampen the spirits of the 35,000 crowd, who were determined to have a blast at the fifth 80s festival at Scone Palace. And every now and then, just to brighten the mood even more, the sun shone.

However, as the hail and rain battered down, the bands played on and the enthusiastic, mostly middle-aged, crowd sang and danced their way through what were near monsoon conditions at times. Old favourites such as Kid Creole, Howard Jones, Hue and Cry, Dave Edmunds, Nik Kershaw, Belinda Carlisle and Kim Wilde were among those getting everyone rocking to the classic sounds of the 80s.

Sunday Post: Toyah Interview

January 25th, 2015

sundaypost15aA new interview with Toyah, published in today’s Sunday Post.

Toyah says It’s A Mystery where all her money went

Pop star Toyah has revealed she was banned from eating to preserve her image in her 80s heyday.

And the singer, who stars at this year’s Rewind Scotland Festival at Scone says she was paid a weekly allowance of just a fraction of the money her records made.

“There were no excesses back then,” Toyah said. “We were on £30 a week. I was weighed once a week and if I went over, even by an ounce, seven stone three pounds, I wasn’t allowed to eat. You read about rock stars with their private jets but we just weren’t allowed that. Everything was done on a budget. Whoever was living that lifestyle wasn’t near us.”
