They're not too shy-shy about reuniting

February

Limahl Here's a reunion nobody saw coming: Kajagoogoo has patched up differences with its original frontman -- the follicle-enhanced Limahl -- and will perform with the original lineup for the first time in 25 years this summer in Scotland.

"The history of the Kajagoogoo divorce has been quite unpleasant," Limahl told the Scottish Daily Record. "We did talk about a reunion five years ago, but it got unpleasant again. ... It's always been over money, not about the personalities, but people do get a bit bitchy so I put it at the back of my mind."

Band members told the Record that the final papers haven't been signed yet, but they're not expecting any more hurdles. Kajagoogoo's biggest year in the '80s was 1983 when songs like "Too Shy," "Ooh to Be Ah" and "Hang On Now" were chart-climbers. "Too Shy" hit No. 1 in the U.K. and No. 5 in the United States.

In 2007, the band relaunched its official website and released the single "Rocket Boy"  -- their first new song in 22 years.

Kajagoogoo is set to play Scotland's RetroFest on Aug. 30-31. Other bands scheduled to play include The Bangles, Kim Wilde, Boy George, Nik Kershaw, Paul Young, Howard Jones and the Blow Monkeys.
