isn't only a virtue, but in this instance

really think that if the EP's title
track "Little Tears Of Love"
could get some decent radio airplay big
things could happen for it and Toyah. It
really will be a missed opportunity if
this isn't promoted properly and heard
outwith the Toyah community. Not sure how
best to do this but maybe if we all
request it @ our local stations they will
have to play it, though they could use
the excuse that they don't have it to
play I suppose. There may also be a
chance Toyah could perform it on a few TV
shows (GMTV etc.) to garner interest.
anyone have any ideas on how to not let
'Little Tears' disappear too soon?

first since 'Dreamchild' in 1994, should
also be released sometime this year. No
firm details other than it IS happening

Tour - Rumours persist that Toyah
will undertake some sort of "low

around the UK to showcase the music on
her new EP and LP. Toyah did mention that
her "Here & Now" contract
stipulated none of the artists could
perform live 60 days either side of that
tour, so if there is to be any sort of

'Sheep Farming In Barnet/The Blue
Meaning' Double CD
|There seems to
be a bit of confusion about what's
happening with the 'Sheep Farming In
Barnet'/'The Blue Meaning' Double CD
Reissue, from me especially!
The first release date was put
back from 22nd to 29th April, then put
back to 6th May apparently. BUT some fans
have managed to buy their copies in HMV,
so I tried yesterday only to be told it
wasn't released until next Monday (erm,
Safari Records are doing a gradual
release? Bad news for Toyah fans in the
Outer Hebrides - tee hee:) - Confusion
This CD is now available (as of May 2nd).
