All Gigs: Toyah Announces Love Is The Law 2013 UK Anniversary Tour

The pop princess will celebrate 30th anniversary of hit album with autumn shows, tickets on sale now

As famous for her flamboyant dress-sense and head-gear as for her memorable fist-pumping semi-rock ’80s anthems, Toyah Willcox’s flame burns just as brightly as it did thirty-odd years ago.

A staple of Smash Hits and a regular on Top of the Pops, days in the early part of the eighties just didn’t seem right without a blast of “It’s a Mystery”, “I Wanna Be Free” or “Thunder in the Mountains” trickling out of the Dansette speaker, courtesy of the sensational sound of Radio 1.

Toyah enjoyed half a decade’s worth of successes, beginning with the indie chart smash “Sheep Farming in Barnet”, her first punt at crossover “The Blue Meaning” and her two Top 10 albums “Anthem” and “The Changeling”. However by 1983, new romantic pop and synths were starting to leave the rest of the music world behind and demand for Ms Willcox’s work was slowly starting to wane. But not by much – album number five still sold very well and has stood the test of time.

Live 2013: Love Is The Law

May 8th, 2013

Toyah announced info about the upcoming tour in her May blog yesterday: The autumn tour is shaping up and we should be announcing the dates any day now. London, Manchester and Bristol are solid, we are now awaiting confirmation on a few other dates before we announce. We have decided to keep it selective and to main venues as I have a TV series to shoot in the autumn, but there will be enough venues for everyone to reach and to follow us around the country. The tour set will include songs from LOVE IS THE LAW, CRIMSON QUEEN, ANTHEM, CHANGELING and SHEEP FARMING, in that order of priority.

Toyah also mentions the possibility of a tour in 2014: Next year I might tour CRIMSON QUEEN, in it’s own right, especially if I can pin SIMON DARLOW down to record the follow up and to come and do some dates too. CQ is a fantastic album and it has had such a great response in the industry I’d like to give it the time it deserves. But this isn’t my priority just yet.

Remember 1983: LITL: Are You Ready? + Opinion Wall

January 30th, 2013

We’re “Remembering ’83” etc… Another little something I threw together recently while playing ‘Love Is The Law’. I say this about all of Toyah’s albums (and images and everything else) but it truly is underrated. I’m also doing another “Opinion Wall”, along the lines of last year’s for The Changeling website. I’ve already had some great responses from fans at Facebook, and if you would also like your opinions/memories of this great album included send them to me. The “wall” will be added to Dreamscape nearer to the 30th anniversary of the album’s release.
