Toyah is Tops!

Readers' Art

Dear Stereo Mascot,

You may remember back in September of 2009 I sent you a fantastic piece of readers’ art. (Re. Masterful Musical Masterpiece!) Well, guess what? Yip, that’s right, today I’m sending you another such amazing artwork for you and your readers to enjoy! And, once again, it has absolutely nothing to do with KawaiiPunk or kawaii whatsoever!

It's post punk singing sensation Toyah!
Stunning stuff, wouldn’t you agree? It’s a couple of pictures of post punk singing sensation Toyah, taken from the September 4th 1982 edition of TV Tops which, at the time, claimed to be “Britain’s best TV comic!” - although I’m pretty sure the good folks at Look-in would have had something to say about that boast! Anyway… once again I cannot actually claim credit for these wonderful works of art, as they were drawn by Gillian Jones of Manchester and Andrew Payne from Bexhill-on-Sea, who won a staggering £5 and £2 respectively for their efforts! Lucky them, huh?

Yours retrospectively,
Matthew Masterson. Aged 36.

Stereo Mascot replies...

Wow! Thanks Matthew! Another fantastic slice of pop history for us all to enjoy! And another mystery as to what that lucky pair spent their winnings on! Gillian, Andrew, if you’re reading this, you know what to do!

Keeping music alive,
Stereo Mascot :)
