The Changeling Resurrection: Gallery Now Online

April 28th, 2012

‘The Changeling Resurrection 2012’ gallery is now online at Dreamscape. View it here.

Tonight Toyah plays Wolverhampton’s Robin 2, the fourth gig of the, highly acclaimed, UK tour.  Doors open at 7pm with first support on 7:05pm. There is no curfew at the venue, so after the gig you can stay for drinks up until 1am. It’s sure to be yet another great gig.

Thanks to everyone who generously sent photos to be included in the new gallery page. I’ve added over 200 and there are some fantastic shots in there, including set lists for each gig so far (Spoilers! don’t click on them if you don’t want to know what’s been played), some fun and quirky London photos (Thanks Damon:)) and lots and lots and lots of… Toyah!

These amazing photos below are by Mark Evans. View these and many more by clicking below. (Thanks to Lärwi for her help with photos, and to all the cups of coffee that helped keep me awake to compile the TCR gallery)

The Changeling Resurrection 2012: The Packt

April 17th, 2012

Slightly odd hearing this performed live after 30 years. Singing these songs again after all this time must be cathartic for Toyah, especially as ‘The Changeling’ was an unhappy time. I’ll bet a few demons are being laid to rest. (Thanks to Claire Wheeler for uploading ‘The Packt’)

The Changeling Resurrection: ‘The Latest’ Review

April 16th, 2012

Another positive review for Saturday’s Brighton gig.

Resplendent in headwear which would make Vivienne Westwood shake her head and tut, Toyah Willcox gave her audience a lesson in stagecraft, turning a messy dress rehearsal into a command performance through sheer chutzpah and professionalism. Fully aware of the irony implicit in a woman of ‘(almost) fifty-four’ belting out the lyrics ‘I don’t wanna go to school’, she introduced one of her biggest hits with a giggle and the words ‘let’s get childish’.

The Changeling Resurrection: ‘This Is Not Retro’ Review

April 16th, 2012

A five star review, and another gallery of excellent live Toyah photos, for ‘The Changeling Resurrection’ @ Brighton by ‘This Is Not Retro’.

Not only does Toyah look fantastic but she’s in fine voice too, confidently romping through a setlist of classic material with obvious glee and enjoyment.

Another great photograph from Saturday’s gig, this one with the Sharon and Toyah, both looking wonderful! Sharon had a brilliant time at the Brighton gig and says that Toyah’s headdress looked amazing.

TCR @ Brighton: A Mini Review, By Lärwi

April 15th, 2012

What a gig! Wow!

The set list was pretty special. “Dawn Chorus” live … wow! And big up to Chris, he sang the backing vocals on “Warrior Rock” to perfection!

Toyah was in good humour all night with quips like “I’ve just heard you’re ALL running the marathon tomorrow!” It’s the London to Brighton run today.

She wore the new head dress first, then the Picasso coat with a brown headpiece and then the pink head dress with the samurai coat. Everybody was taking shots and video so there will be plenty in Youtube and Facebook I’d imagine.

TCR @ Brighton: Toyah & Lärwi

April 15th, 2012

Check out this amazing photo of gorgeous Toyah and gorgeous Lärwi at last night’s Concorde2, Brighton gig. The first concert of ‘The Changeling Resurrection’ tour was a massive success, with celebratory tweets from Toyah and roars of approval from fans all over Facebook. The set list, which, for fear of being lynched, I’m not going to reveal here in full, included six songs from ‘The Changeling’ (incl. the sublime ‘Castaways’, ‘Brave New World’, ‘Dawn Chorus’ and ‘The Packt’). Official photography from the gig will be added to today. There’s also a great photo of Toyah with, ‘I Was A Teenage Toyah Fan’ author, Chris Limb at the book’s Facebook page. Please pay a visit to Falling To Earth again later for more great photos from last night, a mini review of the gig by Lärwi and a round-up of post-first gig news.
