Sings The Blues
Toyah, the band and Ms Willcox, bundle into frantic
activity this month with a series of new musical moves fanfared by her
premier on May 1 at the Screen On The Hill in Jubilee creator Derek
Jarman's film version of Shakespeare's The Tempest, playing the
leading lady, Miranda.
In mid-May there's the first fruit of their recent
studio session with the release of a single called 'Ieya' backed with 'Helium
Song (Spaced Walking)' in both 7" and 12" versions (the 12" running for
eight minutes and featuring different versions of the songs).
Both tracks are from her first LP 'proper' (the
'Sheep Farming In Barnet' album having been a German import compilation),
though they apparently emerge on that in yet another different version.
The LP is called 'The Blue Meaning' and it's out at the end of May.
