Official BBC Archive: On This Day in 1980

November 28th, 2018

On This Day, via the Official Twitter presence of the BBC Archive – 1980: Toyah Willcox introduced Steve Strange, Vivian Stanshall, Derek Jarman and Christopher Biggins to Space Invaders. Nothing about this clip makes any sense…

As well as interviewing a handful of guests she herself chose on the above programme – Saturday Night, Sunday Morning (Series Three, Episode 10) – Toyah, Joel and band also performed two songs. Incredible live versions of Mummies and this…

Friday Night, Saturday Morning was a television chat show with a revolving guest host. It ran on BBC2 from 28 September 1979 to 2 April 1982, broadcast live from the Greenwood Theatre. The programme was the idea of Iain Johnstone and Will Wyatt, who insisted on a changing presenter every fortnight. Another innovation was that the presenters chose the guests they were to interview.

Norwich Evening News: Let’s Rock Toyah Review

May 27th, 2018

norwichen18aA fanatstic review for Toyah at yesterday’s Let’s Rock Norwich.

Toyah review: It’s a mystery how Echo Beach singer looks so great at 60

You could hear the gasps around Earlham Park when Toyah broke the news to the Let’s Rock that she had turned 60 last week.

No way! That was the general reaction from the huge crowd as they watched the punk rock/punk pop:New Romantic star bounce around the stage like a teenager in her retro sparkly aqua marine dress with huge silver necklace. She kicked off with Good Morning Universe and ran smoothly into Echo Beach. Her energy was amazing – her charisma was boundless.
