Sheep Farming In Barnet: Toyah Kickstarts Her Safari Back Catalogue Remasters With Expanded Debut Album

A year before their breakthrough hit single, Four From Toyah, and its leading new wave anthem ‘It’s A Mystery’ (which rose to number 4 in the charts in 1981), Toyah – fronted by the vivacious lead singer Toyah Willcox – released their debut album, Sheep Farming In Barnet.

Six tracks from the album were initially released in 1979, surfacing as an extended EP, dubbed an ‘Alternate Play’ (AP) record.
