Setlist the usual and would prefer removal of certain choices, but a great show. Highlights ‘Latex Messiah’, ‘Danced’ and crutch waving performance of ‘Neon Womb’!

Toyah Live! 2010: The Asylum: Greg Fowler Review 25th April, 2010

A fantastic review of Toyah’s gig at The Asylum, Birmingham last Friday, by Greg Fowler:

Ok. I have waited a LONG time to see Toyah perform live. Having been an on/off fan for pretty much all of my life I have spent the last 2 years of it buying up and completely immersing myself in this lady’s varied back catalogue – and I’ve enjoyed every minute. Only one thing left for me to find out now…Can she cut it live?

I’d seen the “Wild Essence” DVD of course, so I had an idea of what to expect. I’d even managed to watch some of the old concerts from the early 80’s – Toyah at her performance peak?  I was about to find out! Her infamous penchant for ill advised cover versions had me feeling nervous to say the least. With so many great songs of her own under her huge orange belt, why so many covers?

Midlands Rocks/Rokpool: New Toyah Interview 16th April, 2010
A great new interview with Toyah, published yesterday, from ‘Midlands Rocks’:

Toyah Willcox is a true renaissance woman and die-hard Midlands lass. Her career spans over three decades and ranges from stage and song as well as ticks in the bestselling author and charitable activist columns. In 2010, she emerges again as a rock star, touring and recording with new band The Humans.

In advance of an upcoming appearance at the Asylum, Juanita Appleby speaks to this punk, new wave icon about her passions, her thoughts on the music industry and what people can expect from her concert on April 23rd.

JA: I’m going to throw some stats at you, Toyah, because it just blows my mind. 30 albums plus, 13 UK Top 40s, best-selling author, musicals, stage, TV, movie, radio, presenting, voiceovers, charitable activist…so tell me what’s your real passion?

TW: Wow, that’s a good question. I prefer work in front of the camera but work like that is few and far between so I need to be constantly engaged with a kind of creative experience. I’m the kind of person if there isn’t an opportunity happening in one genre I’ll find it happening in another. So that’s probably why I have so much on my CV.

JA: So you get cabin fever if something isn’t happening?

TW: I have cabin fever daily, hourly even.

• Read the full interview online at ‘Midlands Rocks’ here. An expanded version of the interview is also available at the ’Rokpool FM’ website, here, accompanied by a brilliant photo of Toyah, and fans, at The Robin. It’s also available at ‘’ here, the interviewer’s personal blog.
