The Changeling Resurrection: Gallery Now Online

April 28th, 2012

‘The Changeling Resurrection 2012’ gallery is now online at Dreamscape. View it here.

Tonight Toyah plays Wolverhampton’s Robin 2, the fourth gig of the, highly acclaimed, UK tour.  Doors open at 7pm with first support on 7:05pm. There is no curfew at the venue, so after the gig you can stay for drinks up until 1am. It’s sure to be yet another great gig.

Thanks to everyone who generously sent photos to be included in the new gallery page. I’ve added over 200 and there are some fantastic shots in there, including set lists for each gig so far (Spoilers! don’t click on them if you don’t want to know what’s been played), some fun and quirky London photos (Thanks Damon:)) and lots and lots and lots of… Toyah!

These amazing photos below are by Mark Evans. View these and many more by clicking below. (Thanks to Lärwi for her help with photos, and to all the cups of coffee that helped keep me awake to compile the TCR gallery)

Toyah News Briefs

April 24th, 2012

• As expected with a sold out London gig, a lot of footage has been uploaded to ‘You Tube’ over the last couple of days. Check out Steve Day’s, up close and personal, Warrior Rock. It has the distinction of being the very first clip made available online, from a gig that is already being compared to some of the legendary Toyah concerts.

The Birmingham Press: What’s On At The Robin: On Saturday there’s the return of eighties icon Toyah, who since her chart days has honed her act into a top-line live performance. She’ll be celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of her influential album The Changeling, which itself spawned the live follow-up Warrior Rock. There are four support acts and the fun starts at 7pm. Tickets £19.50,

Lost Turntable: Tony Banks’ Soundtracks: In 1984 he composed the score for a low-budget sci-fi flick called Lorca And The Outlaws (it was released as Starship on VHS). In addition to the score, he also composed the original songs, “You Call This Victory” featuring vocalist Jim Diamond and “Lion of Symmetry” featuring vocals by the amazing Toyah Willcox.

A Resurrection For ‘The Changeling Resurrection’

April 23rd, 2012

As I’ve received so many photos from the first three ‘Changeling Resurrection’ gigs the only sensible option is to collect them together, all in the one place. Like this. So… I’m going to add a dedicated TCR page at Dreamscape’s Gallery: A resurrection for The Resurrection! It’ll probably take a few days to complete. Stay tuned for a preview of some of Damon’s photos…

Changeling Resurrection: Toyah Takes London… into Nightflight

April 22nd, 2012

Andrew York’s stunning art, celebrating ‘The Changeling Resurrection 2012’ playing London (it’s sold out dontcha know!). Andrew generously created this Toyah masterpiece especially for Falling To Earth, helping us to mark the occasion in style! Toyah tweeted late this afternoon: “At last! At bush hall! Very busy. There’s 2 film crews in tonite. Can’t wait 2 rock“. Fitting that, the incredible, ‘The Changeling’ is finally being celebrated as it always should have been.

This evening, as Londoners mark the album’s 30th with Toyah, I’ll be consoling myself by ploughing through my new Doctor Who: Revisitations 2 box set (a pressie from a brilliant mate – Thanks Mark!). Please click above to view a larger version of the “Toyah Takes London” art, and here for a version without text.
