BBC Tees: ‘Dave Llewellyn Show’ Toyah Interview

August 30th, 2012

Toyah guested on The Dave Llewellyn Show on BBC Tees on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon. A great interview that was recorded a couple of weeks ago and dominated the first hour of his show.

The first part of the interview begins around 19 minutes into the show and runs for approximately 12 minutes. Toyah talks her favourite cities (Glasgow) and travelling round the UK, gigs, five-year-old Toyah fans (Dave’s daughter), and recording The Changeling 30 years ago and returning to it this year. There’s also a play of ‘I Want To Be Free’.

Part two starts at 34 minutes, and runs for approx 12 minutes, with Toyah talking about how she is perceived (by critics) in comparison to Kate Bush and Siouxsie, Minx, The Humans and their evolution and playing in Estonia, and the King’s Heath Walk of Fame. Plus a play of ‘Thunder In The Mountains’.

Part three is at 51 minutes in, running for approx 10 minutes. Toyah talks the Hare & Hounds gig, The Changeling Resurrection II (fans will be able to vote for particular songs on the set list again), the BBC4 Love & Marriage documentary, what bonds Toyah and Robert, and more. With the magnificent ‘Rebel Run’ rounding off the chat.

Dave was a Toyah fan back in the day so this is an interesting interview. It’s available to listen to for the next five days here.
