Love Is The Law Month: Harty 1983

October 31st, 2013

It’s the final day of October and also of Dreamscape’s Love Is The Law Month. I hope you’ve enjoyed all the LITL related posts over the last 31 days. Of course the Love Is The Law & More Tour is still in full swing, with another three dates still to be played. To finish off here’s a really lovely interview with Toyah from Harty, aired by the BBC in late 1983, plus Toyah and Joel performing ‘The Vow’.

The Latest: LITL & More @ Concorde 2 Review

October 25th, 2013

latest13a

A five star review, of Toyah’s gig at Concorde 2 last night, by Brighton & Hove’s The Latest.

What a night everyone had! Toyah Willcox is back with a vengeance in her new tour full of new and classic hits. She not only refined her singing voice so it had a beautiful rock-opera style to it, but also kept the staging and props simple, yet with scope to be dramatic.

Jowheretogo: LITL & More @ Legends Review

October 23rd, 2013

A review of the opening gig of the Love Is The Law & More Tour, by Jo Oliver of Jowheretogo.

Review: Toyah “Love is the Law Tour”
First date Newcastle Legends 18/10/2013

Toyah is on tour to reanimate the 1983 album Love is The Law, and this she did. She expressed in her interview with me on NE1fm this week, her love for the album, and the fact it represents one of the best years of her life. She said this again tonight.

Toyah is a natural performer. Decades of acting, performing music, voiceover work, interviews and taking whatever the showbiz world threw at her has given her an amazing ability to present these songs in the way only she could. Her voice has, if anything, become stronger, more resonant and quite beautiful. She looks utterly at home still being the Toyah we remember.

• Jo has been at ‘ne1fm’ since last November and over the last year she has interviewed people like Toyah who she never thought she would ever get the opportunity to talk to. ‘ne1fm’ is a small community radio station, its been around many years, but cuts in funding have threatened its continued existence, and sadly unless the station receives some much needed financial help it may vanish in only a few months. If anyone could think of a way to help I know Jo and everyone at ‘ne1fm’ would be very grateful – Visit Jo’s Facebook.
