Toyah Newsy Bits & Pieces!

February 4th, 2013

Alloa Advertiser: Toyah & Co. take Central Scotland to the 80s: Get ready to backcomb your hair and go heavy on the eyeshadow as Falkirk is set to rock with an 80s extravaganza. (A short article featuring photos from Dreamscape, sent to the site by Ray Sears)

Contact Music: Another photo of Toyah at RTÉ in Dublin last Monday, prior to guesting on Katherine Lynch’s Wagon’s Den, which aired last Thursday night.

Acupuncture Awareness Week, which takes place from 25 February to 3 March 2013 aims to educate people about how traditional acupuncture can help improve sleep and aid relaxation. Supporting Acupuncture Awareness Week is actress and singer Toyah Willcox who, like many others, feels that acupuncture has made a huge impact to her life. View an article on this here.

BBC Hereford & Worcester: Toyah Willcox talks about living in Pershore: The star of stage and screen talks passionately about her Worcestershire hometown. She says she’s flattered to see a sudden surge in the number of younger people coming to her gigs after Florence & The Machine and Marina & The Diamonds cited her as a major influence. This radio interview with Toyah, from September 2010, was added to the ‘BBC H&W News’ page yesterday.

Valentine Entertainments: The Karnival of Kitsch!: Toyah is mentioned in Andi Fragg’s bio on this site’s festival line-up page. (they also use one of Andi’s banners that I designed :))

2-Toyah: The idea of a Toyah “tribute” act/band is possibly a good one, especially as there is so much great music and  imagery to pay homage to. I’m not sure advertising for auditionees on Gumtree is the best way to go about it. Who knows!
