All Gigs: Toyah Announces Love Is The Law 2013 UK Anniversary Tour

The pop princess will celebrate 30th anniversary of hit album with autumn shows, tickets on sale now

As famous for her flamboyant dress-sense and head-gear as for her memorable fist-pumping semi-rock ’80s anthems, Toyah Willcox’s flame burns just as brightly as it did thirty-odd years ago.

A staple of Smash Hits and a regular on Top of the Pops, days in the early part of the eighties just didn’t seem right without a blast of “It’s a Mystery”, “I Wanna Be Free” or “Thunder in the Mountains” trickling out of the Dansette speaker, courtesy of the sensational sound of Radio 1.

Toyah enjoyed half a decade’s worth of successes, beginning with the indie chart smash “Sheep Farming in Barnet”, her first punt at crossover “The Blue Meaning” and her two Top 10 albums “Anthem” and “The Changeling”. However by 1983, new romantic pop and synths were starting to leave the rest of the music world behind and demand for Ms Willcox’s work was slowly starting to wane. But not by much – album number five still sold very well and has stood the test of time.
