The Arts Desk: Give Them Wings – Film Review

August 7th, 2022

Give Them Wings review – down but not out in Darlington

Daniel Watson and Toyah Willcox shine as a disabled man and his doughty mam

Give Them Wings is the biopic of Paul Hodgson, who seven months after he was born in 1965 was diagnosed with meningococcal meningitis. If that wasn’t bad enough, he survived his precarious childhood to become a devout fan of Durham’s hapless Darlington FC – it’s criminal that this low-budget British indie wasn’t titled Give Them Wingers.

An ex-civil servant and now a screenwriter and producer, Hodgson has spent his life confined to a wheelchair and hampered by a speech impediment. Directed by onetime Bond heavy Sean Cronin (who cast himself as a football thug), the film version of Hodgson’s 2021 memoir isn’t a world-beater, but it is a crowd-pleasing underdog with guts, grit and an admirable streak of unsentimental humour.

Set in the late 1980s, Hodgson’s story of striving unfolds in the drab Northern terrain familiar from early ‘60s realist films, the so-called British New Wave.

Ipswich Star: Toyah Heading To Let’s Rock Ipswich

July 29th, 2022

Toyah heading for Ipswich with Let’s Rock at Trinity Park

A host of 80s stars will turn the clock back 40 years when a major music event comes to Trinity Park near Ipswich in September to round off the Festival of Suffolk.

Among the bill-toppers at “Let’s Rock – Ipswich” will be UK entertainment icon Toyah who is paying a return visit to an area she has played several times during her career.

She will share the stage with Adam Ant, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, ABC, and Ipswich’s own Nik Kershaw among other massive names from a great era in music.

Toyah spoke to us about her visit – and the importance of 80s music. She said: “It really is great, we all get along together very well and there is a real energy about that era that means we all have a great time.

“When I’m touring myself and doing a full set I do a lot of my new material – but with this I have about 20 minutes and I concentrate on the 80s stuff, that’s what people have come to hear.”

Toyah Fanzine: Issue(s) 50 – ANTHEM – Pre-Ordering Closing!

July 27th, 2022

Dreamscape’s TOYAH Fanzine is hitting 50 issues. It’s fitting that the 50th fanzine should be a celebration of Toyah’s legendary album ANTHEM (though as a Toyah fan since 1980 just about everything Toyah has ever created/released/worked on is legendary to me!). I’m working on these now and will continue for the next few weeks, to be completed, printed and in the post for early September. There’s just a few more days left to order.
