I myself was a massive fan of Madonna when I was growing up and so much of this book reminded me of the brilliant times I had in my youth, collecting memorabilia, seeing her on TV and eventually seeing her in the flesh and actually meeting her.
However it would seem Toyah was far more gracious than Miss Ciccone, even inviting fans into the recording stuidio with her to lay down vocals and employing one (the author) to manage her fan club!
I have recently discovered the joys of Toyah's early music - check out her Safari albums Anthem & the Changeling for proof of her genius.
Back to the book - it's a light and funny read, I did it in one sitting, It's a real page turner, illustrated throughout with rare pics and featuring some particularly great early gig memories. How I would have loved to see the Rebel Run tour!
There's much for Toyah fans of a certain age to identify with here, but this book will appeal to anyone who grew up in the 80's, anyone who has been a huge fan of a pop star or band (that's most of the population!), or indeed anyone who simply enjoys great storytelling.
A highly recommended read. Thanks Chris.
aware of Chris Limb's efforts for decades,and I'm now so pleased to own a documentation of these amazings years
of Toyah; the 80's alone is worth the price of admission; this is a MUST!

I bought this boom by mistake, I saw the picture of toyah on the cover and just bought it, it was only a pound, but I'm glad I did, it was a very good readPublished on 2 May 2014 by david franklin
Even though I no longer have the record player, I have kept all the vinyl, pictures discs included because the music is class and helped define a generation. Read morePublished on 3 Feb. 2014 by Roy
