Although still credited simply as “Toyah” (which was the name of the band she fronted up until 1983), the album was technically the start of Willcox’s career as a solo artist, and her first LP for a major label, Portrait Records (part of the CBS group).
- Minx was produced by Christopher Neil, and its lead single “Don’t Fall in Love (I Said)” was a hit in the UK and Ireland, reaching the top 40.
- The album contained unique readings of songs already made famous or released by other artists, namely Alice Cooper’s School’s Out and Latin Quarter’s America For Beginners.
- The cover photography was taken by Terence Donovan, showing Willcox wearing outfits designed by Japanese avant-garde fashion designer Issey Miyake. Miyake designed several garments for Willcox during this period, which were used as artwork in related singles. The accompanying music video for the single was also directed by Terence Donovan.
