The band Kiss Of Reality consisted of David Pittaway, Volker Rehn & Jörg Schwickerath.

Toyah asked German progressive rock trio Kiss Of Reality if she could write lyrics to some of their music and collaborate with them in 1992. After laying down some demos Toyah recorded six tracks for the album in early 1993. The CD was only released in Germany by M+D Records and is very sought after by fans. Toyah features on six of the eleven tracks, for which she also wrote lyrics…

Official Toyah: At The Rainbow

February 22nd, 2018

Official Toyah’s gorgeous At The Rainbow anniversary image, along with info on the gig:

On This Day 22.2.1981 Toyah performed a headline gig at the Rainbow Theatre, London with Joel Bogen, Phil Spalding, Nigel Glockler, Adrian Lee. The gig was hot on the feels of the EP Four From Toyah charting in the Top 40 singles chart. Safari Records decided to film the concert and record the audio on the Rolling Stones mobile recording unit. It was then licenced it to BBC who televised a 30-min edit and released a 55-min version on the recently launched home video market on #VHS and #Laserdisc formats, the latter containing Nick Tauber’s stereo mix. The full concert had a rather long set list but since the band had only recently formed they performed arrangements of material from the albums Sheep Farming and The Blue Meaning. They did however perform all 4 of the songs from the EP Four From Toyah which at this point were the only recordings they’d made together. The full set list for this gig was as below and the repeated encore versions of War Boys and Mystery were used in final video edit. (Image © Official Toyah)
