Toyah Newsy Bits & Pieces!

February 18th, 2013

• Saffron cites Toyah as an influence again in another new interview: Spark Sunderland: Republica: Back & Ready To Go: “Singers like Toyah and Siouxsie and the Banshees, they’re quite individual front women you know. They were like the first of their kind; their look the way they sang and the lyrics.”

Wales Online: Hannah Jones: There’s nothing wrong with dyeing your hair: Once upon a time, I copied Toyah Willcox. I went about pretending to have a lisp – I don’t think Ebbw Vale was ready for a 10-year-old lumper prancing around in a home-made ra-ra skirt and answering “It’s A Mystery” whenever I was asked a question. The best thing about my Toyah years, though, was discovering the joys of back-combing and bleach.

This is Gloucestershire: A new Toyah interview was included in the Gloucestershire Echo’s ‘Weekend’ magazine on Saturday: Singer and actress Toyah Willcox tells us how she finally managed to beat her insomnia. (Only available in the magazine)
