Dreamscape Runs To The Water’s Edge…

April 10th, 2022

This website flew (almost like a Bird in Flight!) into it’s 23rd year online last month. I started creating Dreamscape in the late 1990s, while I was also, slowly, teaching myself how to build a website with basic html. So I like to think of this website as existing in two millennia… even though it didn’t actually go live until March 2000, after a failed launch in late 1999!

I’ve thought about changing the website – It’s not one of those flashy “with bells on” sites but it does the job it’s supposed to do well I think, and I worry changing it to one of those websites would spoil it. Who knows…

I always said – as certain people like to remind me – I’d stop running a fansite (or a fanzine!) at 50, but I’m now the ripe young age of 54 with no plans, anytime soon, of stopping!!! (NB: I’m hoping to bring the News Archive up to date, at some point this year, by adding links to each of the past 18 months of news that hasn’t been “”archived” yet!)

Dreamscape Toyah Features: Dive In… Be Rescued!

August 23rd, 2020

Dreamscape has 20+ years of Toyah news in our archives, but this isn’t only a news site – There are also tons of retro, and not so retro, Toyah career features – celebrating albums, eras, releases, significant Toyah “moments” and much more – to browse and read!

Dreamscape 20: Our (Weird) 21st Year Online!

August 23rd, 2020

Didn’t expect our 21st year online to have been quite like this… Lockdown, masks and staying home! But there’s still been plenty of Toyah news (and newsy bits!) to post… I’ve been doing that for two decades now and the idea of not doing it feels slightly weird! I always said I’d stop running a fansite at 50, but I’m now just about to hit 53 with no plans, just yet, of stopping!!!

Toyah.Net: You Tubing with Dreamscape

June 10th, 2020

Re-uploaded to this website’s You Tube channel recently, Sky Trax – The 1985 Toyah Special; a great Minx-era interview; and BBC Breakfast Time, a much shorter but still interesting Desire-era interview. These uploads have both been edited to remove all music from them, which was the reason they were originally made unavailable by You Tube.

Lots of other quirky clips and footage have also been added to our channel: Toyah, Superhits, Monster Munch 80s adverts, and more! Click below to visit and/or subscribe!

Dreamscape: Website Restored

May 7th, 2020

After almost three weeks of work and hassle this website has been sorted and restored to the format which works best. The database was also saved, meaning the past eight years of Toyah news in this format are also restored. I quite liked the temporary version but this permanent format uses advanced functions to categorise and tag news posts, something Toyah’s eclectic and busy career needs. (Some photos from 2012 are still missing. I’m working on fixing this)

Toyah @ Christmas: Dreamscape’s Festive 50

December 1st, 2012

Welcome to December!

A couple of years ago Dreamscape compiled the ‘Toyah Festive 50’. A tinseltastic half tonne of Yuletide related Toyah facts, figures and trivia. Revisit the full rundown here.

Why was Toyah Scarlett at Christmas? … Who would be her dream dining companion? … Just how many town’s lights did Toyah switch on at Christmas 2003?…

What were Toyah and Tony Robinson doing at Christmas 1988? … Which other programmes were aired the Christmas Eve night that Toyah’s legendary Theatre Royal, Drury Lane concert was watched by millions on BBC2?

Discover the answer to these and much more in our Toyah @ Christmas information overload! Completely unecessary but a lot of fun nonetheless!

FTE (& A Dash Of Dreamscape) @ Facebook

We are, yet again, back at, what I call, Facebook… Such fun! Please join us for lots of Toyah.

We Scanned Their Skies With Stardust Eyes…

May 7th, 2012

A really good friend reminded me yesterday about the history of Dreamscape, the reason why it was started, all the hard work, vast content (much of which has been lifted wholesale and plonked into a variety of Facebook profiles with zero credit back to toyah.net :)) and dedication. What began as a horrible, negative, stressful day ended on a completely different note. I could write a book (Chapter 2007: Annus Horribilis) about my experiences of running these sites, and the (in)famous forum. Don’t worry, I won’t. I never sat on my laurels that’s for sure. It’s great that some who visited the site on its first day still visit so many years later. Dreamscape always was (and is) for, and about, Toyah and the true fans…
