.Glasgow University Guardian - Human Nature
.Thursday 28th January, 2010 • Thanks to Colin..........................Interview
Toyah was interviewed recently (30th Nov 2009) by, the rather excellent, 'Glasgow University Guardian':

Oisín Kealy checks in with punk pioneer Toyah Willcox

Does it feel like thirty years since It’s a Mystery?
No, because I performed it six weeks ago to thirty thousand people, it’s remained completely constant. I don’t really think back, I’ve got too much going on. I feel absolutely no connection to the eighties at all. That said, I think it’s because for me I’ve never stepped away from that music, I’ve always performed it. So I’m more in touch with the music than with the actual eighties. For instance I’m not very fond about shoulder pads coming back in!

Do you think you retained your punk spirit as you grew older?
I don’t think I ever grew out of the punk ethos. It was absolutely remarkable being there. It was the first time where I saw that race didn’t matter, disability didn’t matter, sexual orientation didn’t matter, and if you had a good idea, you had ears that listened to it. It was the most all-encompassing thing that I’ve ever come across. It’s probably the most rewarding movement I’ve lived through and I’m 51. I never thought I’d be alive, I thought I wouldn’t survive past thirty. I knew that I could never have family because I’d rather have glass inserted under my skin, and I knew I would never stop working. In a way I’ve kept to that but I never conceived what it would be like to hit fifty. I think that’s because the media ignores the power of each decade, and I feel very critical about that. I never believed that there would be value beyond thirty, and there is incredible value. I’ve moved away from my roots very obviously — I’ve presented the Good Sex Guide live, I’ve presented Songs of Praise, I do pantomime, but at the same time I’m working with Bill Rieflin and Robert Fripp, who are both legends. So I feel very lucky in that I’ve never been trapped by any particular type of genre.

.Tellurian Remembered / Flickr: The Toyah Willcox Group
.Thursday 28th January, 2010.........................................................Internet
Back in the day... before the interweb hijacked our lives... there were fanzines! One of the best was 'Tellurian' (running circa 1986 to 1997), the only way to get your reliable Toyah news for many years. A couple of examples of the wonderfulness of 'Tellurian' are included in The Toyah Willcox Group @ flickr...

'Tellurian' was the Official Toyah Fanclub/Newsletter but fanzine sounds better!

.The Humans Live 2010 - DGM News - The Humans Competition
.Wednesday 27th January, 2010........................................................Music
DGM News are currently running a competition with the prize of 'We Are The Humans', plus the spiffingly rare CD version of 'These Boots Are Made For Walkin':

When did Robert Fripp last play a non-soundscape / King Crimson gig in the UK? If you know the answer to this head-scratcher you could win a copy of The Humans album, We Are The Humans, and a CD copy of their cover of These Boots Are Made For Walking featuring RF on guitar. 

As Robert prepares for his guest slot as part of The Humans’ gigs next month in Leamington Spa, Cambridge and London we wondered when he last appeared on a UK stage where he wasn’t soundscaping, Crimsonising, Craftyising or even RFSQing!

So the question is this: when did Robert last play in the UK where he wasn't soundscaping? Providing the name of the group gets you The Humans booty for your trouble.

All you need to do is send an email with the answer to
competitions@dgmlive.com with HUMANS in the subject header and we’ll announce the lucky winner on Tuesday 2nd February.

NB: John Young has just been announced as support for The Humans on all of their forthcoming live dates. Visit the John Young MySpace here.

.DSD - We Are The Humans Review
.Wednesday 27th January, 2010........................................................Music
DSD, aka Die Shellsuit Die, reviewed 'We Are The Humans' at the end of 2009:

It would appear we have the President of Estonia to thank for the existence of this band - or perhaps it should be Robert Fripp, who declined the Presidential invitation to tour the country, thus galvanising his hard-working wife, Toyah Willcox. Whoever deserves the gratitude; let us not bow down too far, too soon - although by no means a poor effort, this debut album is far from exemplary. Plenty of it is self-indulgent, bass-heavy dribble, with la Willcox’ oh-so-serious tones singing of who-knows-what around the sides. Quicksilver is a genuine score, however, with Labyrinth a close contender. Both capture a genuine sense of other-ness without seeming as arch as the other tracks. I sense that without the big names, this would not stand up for long on its musical merits but who knows where the band may go next? At least it isn’t more turgid identi-pop.

.BRIT Awards 2010 - The BRITs Hits 30!
.Wednesday 20th January, 2010.....................................................Internet
The 'BRITs' are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year (the first awards took place in 1977!!), and they have a shiny new website with lots of content to view. Toyah is included, via a great photo from the 1985 event, and as a nominee in 1982 - '84, when it was the 'British Record Industry Awards'/'BPI Awards'.

NB: There's always been some confusion regarding the origins of the 'BRITs' and the "History Timeline" at the new site seems to confirm that they derived from the 'British Record Industry Awards' (not televised - industry only - Grosvenor House Hotel, London) rather than the 'British Rock & Pop Awards' (televised, with band perfomances - Lyceum, London) . Toyah won Best Female 1981 at the latter (held in early 1982). The photo of Toyah and Paul Young is from 1985, when they were known as the 'BPI' Awards.

.Vampires Rock 2010
.Tuesday 12th January, 2010..........................................................Internet
2010 has some great things in store for me and my shows. We kick off the year with Toyah at The Grove Theatre in Dunstable and we finish the run at The Octagon Theatre in Yeovil on the 12th February. Vampires Rock will be back in September for the new tour but I’m afraid to say without Toyah as The Devil Queen. It has been an amazing time performing with Toyah, and she really has taken well to the show, but I can say it won’t be the last time you see her in the show. I’m hoping for some new celebrity guest appearances but will let you know as they confirm.

.Snow White: It’s A Mystery!: Secret Performance
.Monday 11th January, 2010...........................................................Theatre
Last night saw a special secret performance of Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs take place at the Sheffield Lyceum.

This was the final show of Toyah’s 2009 panto.

Due to popular demand, we’re adding an extra performance of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. But this version of our spectacular pantomime will have a unique difference – you will be part of the show!

In this final performance the tables are turned, with the audience given a starring role and all the jokes being directed at the stage. Better still, the cast aren’t in on the joke, so they won’t know what to expect.

.The Star - Where There's A Willcox There's A Way...
.Tuesday 5th January, 2010.........................................................Interview
A new Toyah interview, published by Yorkshire based 'The Star' on New Year's Eve:

If Toyah Willcox made a new year resolution in 2009 to be a queen she got her wish granted – twice

And she begins next year as she finishes this one, beneath a brash crown as the Wicked Queen in Sheffield's biggest panto, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.

"I love it. I haven't stopped laughing. My voice is tired from laughing," says the '80s pop-star- turned-actress of her regal role.

"Playing the Queen means that no matter what mood I'm in, whether I decide to play her sweetly, play her nastily, or predictably, it works because the audience knows she's bad which means no matter what I give them they will see me as a bad person."

While being in panto right up until Christmas Eve meant a mad dash back to her home in Worcestershire to be with family, Toyah is enjoying working in one of the country's most "remarkable, versatile, quickly- changing cities."

Her character is in stark contrast to some of her previous roles in the likes of British comedy film The Power Of Three and Secret Diary Of A Call Girl, in which she played Billie Piper's mother.

When Snow White concludes at The Lyceum Theatre on January 10 she will return to her Devil Queen spot in the touring theatre musical Vampires Rock.

Toyah is still making and performing music of her own, under her name and with her band The Humans, which features Bill Rieflin from REM and her husband Robert Fripp, formerly of the iconic band King Crimson. They released an album late summer while Toyah's put out In The Court Of The Crimson Queen, a tongue-in-cheek reference to Fripp's album In The Court Of The Crimson King.
