Dreamscape Advent Calendar 2018: Day 9

December 9th, 2018

christmas2018bChristmas 1981, 82, 83 & 84. In the early eighties Toyah’s Official Fanclub – Intergalactic Ranch House – sent out Christmas cards to subscribing members each December.

Toyah took the time to sign each and every card, which numbered around 6,000 at the height of the fanclub’s popularity.

This tradition was carried on for an extra year, in 1984, when the IRH became simply the Toyah Fanclub after Toyah’s Safari Records contract ended and she signed to the CBS/Portrait.

All four cards featured photos of Toyah, showcasing great early eighties imagery and creating a unique set of fanclub memorabilia that became collector’s items.

In the early 80s, every member of Toyah’s Fanclub – The Intergalactic Ranchouse – received a personally signed Christmas card from Toyah. She even mentioned in an interview at the time that she signed thousands of cards. Do you still have yours? Here are all four cards, send from 1981 to 1984. The card from 1983 was a postcard and the 1984 card came from the Toyah Fanclub, the IRH had closed earlier in the year.

Dreamscape Gallery: IRH/Toyah Fan Club Photos

March 7th, 2013

Last month the complete Safari Records/Intergalactic Ranchhouse/Toyah Fan Club photo collection was added to Dreamscape’s Gallery. I’ve now finally also added a thumbnail link to the page on the Gallery menu.

The full collection of “Intergalactic Ranchhouse” and “Toyah Fan Club” photos, which originally accompanied the regular newsletters, were mailed out to fan club subscribers between 1980 and ’86.

There are also a few pre and post-fan club/official Toyah photos included too. (Thanks to Andi Westhorpe for the IRH/TFC collection. Thanks also to Paul Lomas)
