Dreamscape – Toyah.Net: You Tube Channel

May 27th, 2020

Following our recent post about Toyah’s official You Tube channel… Here’s one about this website’s –  Dreamscape’s You Tube channel.

Our You Tube is pretty much what you’d expect from a fan based channel. We’ve compiled a selection of retro interviews, Toyah TV appearances and more from throughout Toyah’s career (which I believe is now in its 45th year if Glitter – filmed 1975, aired 1976 – is regarded as the very beginning!).

We are rollercoasting towards 1K of subscribers, and our most popular video is Toyah: This Is Your Life, which as of writing has been viewed 184,629 times and is currently increasing by around 2K views per day. Not that I’m a stats freak of course! Please click below to visit Dreamscape’s You Tube Toyah channel (which also includes some rare Madonna footage).

Rare Toyah: Three Piece Suite/This Situation 1977

May 23rd, 2020

Just uploaded a very early, and rare, TV clip of Toyah, from 1977 to Dreamscape/Toyah.Net’s You Tube channel. It isn’t incredible video quality but a truly interesting curiosity from Toyah’s very early acting days. This is post-Glitter, pre-Jubilee in Toyah’s career timeline.

Toyah plays Buzz in the short films/sketch show comedy series, “Three Piece Suite”, starring Diana Rigg. This clip is from episode five of the series. The three sketches included were: “Come in No. 1”, “This Situation” and “All in the Mind”. Toyah guested in “This Situation”. It aired on 5th April 1977 on BBC2. Thanks to andy.

Cherry Red TV: The Safari Records Story

April 10th, 2020

Fresh up and exclusive to cherryred.tv – The Safari Records Story with John Craig (interviewed by Iain McNay). John Craig was the co-founder and CEO of Safari Records, an Independent label which flourished between 1977 and 1985. One of the label’s first signings was Wayne County, the controversial American artist who had helped to build his profile by performing at Max’s Kansas city club in New York. His Track ‘Fuck Off’ (also known as ‘If you don’t want to fuck me baby fuck off’) was a top Independent selling single in the UK for nearly a year. Wayne then became Jayne – one of the first transgender artists. Safari also had two successful albums with the Boys before signing Toyah in 1979. This led to consistent single and album chart success for the label. John talks us through the stories behind these and many other signings. Watch his fascinating story.
