The Humans @ The Roundhouse – Making News!

February 27th, 2010

A brief mention for The Humans in the ‘London Evening Standard’ review of Thursday’s Haiti Fundraiser;

Haiti Earthquake Fundraiser @ The Roundhouse: Egos landing for Haiti, By Rick Pearson

Last night, a conveyer belt of stars took part in a five-hour musical marathon to raise money for Haiti. Egos were left at the door as all profits from the show at the Roundhouse went to ActionAid and Médecins Sans Frontières, in a bid to help the charities rebuild the country following the earthquake.

Of the early acts, The Humans were the strangest, Bombay Bicycle Club the hippest and The Futureheads the most entertaining — particularly during a rabble-rousing rendition of Kate Bush’s Hounds of Love.

Read the full review here.

Meanwhile, today’s ‘Mirror’ features a news story on Toyah – the interesting aspect is that it is a report on/reaction to a review of The Humans’ set at the Haiti Fundraiser by ‘The Times’ newspaper;

The Mirror: Toyah’s Shock & Bore | The Mirror/Celebs: Toyah Gets Fans Seeing Red And Not Because Of Her Hair This Time: Singer Toyah Willcox’s hair may have changed from electric pink to stylish blonde but the ex-punk still has some people seeing red.

Her performance at a fundraiser for the Haiti quake was panned by The Times critic Pete Paphides.

He described it as: “A succession of songs so uniformly awful that the applause they elicited stemmed from the realisation that mere silence would heighten the sense of communal embarrassment.”

Clearly the 51-year old singer still has the power to shock.
