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)

Exeter Post: TCR Bristol Review: Print Version

April 20th, 2012

The print version of the ‘Exeter Post’ review of Wednesday night’s gig. Dawn Killick’s 9/10 appraisal is full of positivity for Toyah and the gig.

… she then sang Dawn Chorus, Angel and Jungles Of Jupiter: the latter showcasing the talents of the band and also the higher range of her voice, with Toyah sounding better than ever.

Exeter Post: Ahead-Of-Her Time Toyah Still Feisty and Energetic

April 20th, 2012

Wow! Another fantastic review for the tour. I must say it’s good to finally hear journalists say what we, Toyah’s fans, have been saying for 30-odd years!

Toyah Willcox played the tunnels in a special 30th anniversary tour to celebrate her 1982 albums, The Changeling and Warrior Rock.

Toyah burst on to the stage in her signature striking headdress and delivered a high energy performance for well over an hour and a half, with three whirlwind costume changes.

The opening number was Good Morning Universe, which highlighted her still very youthful voice, then moved to Creepy Room and Castaways. By this time the crowd was moving and swaying with exaggerated hand movements in time with Toyah’s. Then, for the first time since 1981 at the Hammersmith Odeon, she played Brave New World, which, she admitted, made the hairs stand up on the back of her neck.
