Toyah Newsy Bits & Pieces!

February 4th, 2013

Alloa Advertiser: Toyah & Co. take Central Scotland to the 80s: Get ready to backcomb your hair and go heavy on the eyeshadow as Falkirk is set to rock with an 80s extravaganza. (A short article featuring photos from Dreamscape, sent to the site by Ray Sears)

Contact Music: Another photo of Toyah at RTÉ in Dublin last Monday, prior to guesting on Katherine Lynch’s Wagon’s Den, which aired last Thursday night.

Acupuncture Awareness Week, which takes place from 25 February to 3 March 2013 aims to educate people about how traditional acupuncture can help improve sleep and aid relaxation. Supporting Acupuncture Awareness Week is actress and singer Toyah Willcox who, like many others, feels that acupuncture has made a huge impact to her life. View an article on this here.

BBC Hereford & Worcester: Toyah Willcox talks about living in Pershore: The star of stage and screen talks passionately about her Worcestershire hometown. She says she’s flattered to see a sudden surge in the number of younger people coming to her gigs after Florence & The Machine and Marina & The Diamonds cited her as a major influence. This radio interview with Toyah, from September 2010, was added to the ‘BBC H&W News’ page yesterday.

Valentine Entertainments: The Karnival of Kitsch!: Toyah is mentioned in Andi Fragg’s bio on this site’s festival line-up page. (they also use one of Andi’s banners that I designed :))

2-Toyah: The idea of a Toyah “tribute” act/band is possibly a good one, especially as there is so much great music and  imagery to pay homage to. I’m not sure advertising for auditionees on Gumtree is the best way to go about it. Who knows!

Toyah on TV: Katherine Lynch’s Wagon’s Den

January 31st, 2013

Katherine Lynch’s Wagon’s Den: RTÉ Two
Thursday 31st January: 10pm
Tongue-in-cheek comedy chat show, starring Katherine Lynch as Sheila Chic, who invites Brian Dowling and guests to give their take on the week’s celebrity news and gossip.

NB: I’m not 100% sure if this is the edition that Toyah guests in but it seems likely as she filmed her appearance at RTÉ in Dublin on Monday night. Toyah tweeted a photo of herself travelling to Dublin and also a message on Tuesday about her visit: “Thank u 2 all @ wagons den, rte dublin. Wild night! OMG charlotte -letitia crosby of Geordie shore…outrageous.”

Toyah Newsy Bits & Pieces!

January 29th, 2013

• Toyah, photographed at RTÉ in Dublin, last night guesting on Katherine Lynch’s Wagon’s Den. I think this airs this Thursday at 10.30pm on RTÉ 2, and will no doubt eventually appear on You Tube. There’s a little more info on Wagon’s Den in our previous post here. (Photo © Contact Music – View the full version at their website)

Quadrophenia Live: It was announced yesterday that The Who will play the full Quadrophenia album on their forthcoming UK and Ireland arena tour. This was reported all over the internet and many of the articles included a namecheck for Toyah: Metro, NME, Contact Music.

Toyah on TV: While on the subject of Quadrophenia, just a reminder that the film airs again tonight. Full details here.

I Am Still Ashley Elsdon: Still Buying Vinyl: There are a handful of tracks that are on a list, the kind of list you know somehow you’ll never get to the end of. For me it’s a list of tracks I had once and now I’ve no idea where they are, so I have to get them again. This EP from Toyah is one. It has a track on it called Urban Tribesman, which I really loved, but it just doesn’t seem to be available on download or on a CD anywhere.

In The Court Of The Crimson Queen: Every Home Should Have One! Just a little something I threw together while playing “the album of 2008” the other day. Please click to zoom. (All photos used © Dean Stockings/Toyah)
