express13aToyah Willcox turns 60: Singer looks unrecognisable in series of racy unearthed snaps

Toyah Willcox is celebrating her 60th birthday today and throwback pictures of the singer show her looking a world away from her present appearance.

Across the multi-talented star’s 40-year career, she has scored 12 charting singles, recorded 24 albums, appeared in 40 stage plays, 20 films and has written two books. In one unearthed snap, the singer was captured mid-performing in 1997 play Cabaret, one of her most memorable stage appearances.

Toyah’s Birthday 2016

May 14th, 2016

May 2005 was an amazing month – It was Toyah’s birthday and we were also still basking in the release of Warrior Rock and Love Is The Law on CD, both for the very first time – and this month saw the release of, the fantastic, The Safari Records Singles Collection – Volume 1. Toyah also played two sets at the Wasted Festival. TARDIS your way back to May 2005 by clicking below.

Toyah’s Birthday 2016

May 13th, 2016

birthday2016cThis week (and a bit of next) we are counting down to Toyah’s birthday by revisiting past birthday updates (as you do!).

May 2003 was an exciting month for Toyah fans. Not only did Toyah turn 45 but there was the not insignificant matter of the release of a brand new album. Toyah’s first all-new studio album in nine years and also of the new Millennium:

Velvet Lined Shell (catalogue number VSR001) is released on Toyah’s own, newly formed, record label, Vertical Species. The CD artwork is dark and dramatic, similar to the actual music. Toyah has cited Mogwai, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Marilyn Manson and Elbow (among others) as her influences while recording these new songs.”

• Revisit May 2003 here. Further info on Velvet Lined Shell at The Official Toyah Discography.
