The Humans were Toyah, her musical director Chris Wong and multi-instrumentalist the late Bill Rieflin (drummer for King Crimson and latter-day REM, as well as Ministry, the Revolting Cocks, Lard, KMFDM, Pigface, Swans, Chris Connelly, and Nine Inch Nails).
- Produced by Bill Rieflin and engineered by Simon Heyworth.
- The Humans were formed after Willcox was approached to tour in Estonia by the Estonian ambassador in 2006. Willcox formed the band in 2007 and they premiered their material on a three-date mini-tour of Estonia in late October 2007. All three dates sold out in 24 hours, and were attended by several governmental dignitaries including the Estonian president.
- The band released their debut album We are the Humans on 1 May 2009. The release was celebrated with a concert in Tartu and also included Willcox’s husband Robert Frippon guitar.
