Phil Jupitus Instagram: Three Post-Punk Women

October 5th, 2023

A quirky update, from Phil Jupitus’ Instagram, and Official Toyah even replies!

These three women were key to the post punk era in music. All innovators in their spheres. And all still gigging.

(Toyah Willcox once sang ‘Secret Love’ from ‘Annie Get Your Gun’ to me. I remember a skinhead girl shouting for ‘Say When’ at The Lyceum and Lene looking down and saying quite sternly “Not yet.” Chrissie Hynde was on the pop quiz and was utterly delightful. The Pretenders debut album is one of those where I can’t dip in and out. It has to be the whole thing beginning to end. I would love to see her singing ‘Precious’ live, just once.)

Thanks Phil! ❤️🔥 (Secret Love is from Calamity Jane) 😘 x (reply from Toyah!)

Two of Toyah’s contemporaries are currently touring the UK; Hazel O’Connor and Lene Lovich, and this is the latter’s first tour here with a full band for around 20 years.

Lene is playing UK dates until May, with the first taking place in Leicester last weekend, and is also included in the Rebellion Festival line-up in August. There are also other European dates.

Hazel is on the road with the Breaking Glass Barefoot Tour, as well as a couple of other non-tour dates, through until June. Hazel will also be playing the Rebellion Festival.

‘Breaking Glass Barefoot’ is also the name of Hazel’s new autobiography, and Toyah receives a mention in the book.
