Toyah’s Birthday 2016

May 13th, 2016

birthday2016cThis week (and a bit of next) we are counting down to Toyah’s birthday by revisiting past birthday updates (as you do!).

May 2003 was an exciting month for Toyah fans. Not only did Toyah turn 45 but there was the not insignificant matter of the release of a brand new album. Toyah’s first all-new studio album in nine years and also of the new Millennium:

Velvet Lined Shell (catalogue number VSR001) is released on Toyah’s own, newly formed, record label, Vertical Species. The CD artwork is dark and dramatic, similar to the actual music. Toyah has cited Mogwai, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Marilyn Manson and Elbow (among others) as her influences while recording these new songs.”

• Revisit May 2003 here. Further info on Velvet Lined Shell at The Official Toyah Discography.

Toyah’s Birthday 2016

May 11th, 2016

It’s exactly one week until Toyah’s birthday. In years gone by Dreamscape has sporadically “counted down” to Toyah’s big day and, what the heck, we are doing it again… There will be a birthday related post right here every day until May 18th.

Today – Take a look back at how we marked Toyah’s birthday five years ago: There were previously unseen polaroids and rare photos, screen caps from long-ago TV roles, features (including an Anthem one that is finally being printed as I type!) and much more…
