Capturing The New Romantics: More Info 21 February, 2012
A little further information on the Herb Schulz book that may include rare Toyah photos.

Thought I'd post a quick update on the status of Herb Schulz's New Romantics Photo book, since there has been a lot of interest about it. So far, the digital book is 65 pages, might be more or less, as most of the pages are full picture spreads and we are working on perfecting the layout. There are around 85 pictures, again still a work in progress, maybe more or less.

The pictures may include: Toyah Willcox, Steve Strange, Boy George, Siouxsie Sioux, Marylin, PinkieTessa(tm), Perri Lister, Barbie Wild , Zandra Rhodes, Melissa Caplan.

We are making good progress on it though and I am hoping to see it in the ibook store sometime in the spring. I will post more as things progress. In the mean time you can visit Herb Schulz's
website if you want to get an impression of the pictures that are going to be in the book.

Ten Years Of Little Tears 13 February, 2012
Anniversary addict that I am, it's worth noting that not only is 2012 the 30th anniversary of 'The Changeling' and the 25th of 'Desire', but it's also 10 years since these two "must have" CDs were released: Toyah's first new music of the millennium, the awesome 'Little Tears Of Love' EP, and the double CD reissue of 'Sheep Farming In Barnet' and 'The Blue Meaning'.

I Was A Teenage Toyah Fan: 'EEN' Review 10 February, 2012
Another positive review for 'I Was A Teenage Toyah Fan'. This one from the 'Edinburgh Evening News' by Liam Rudden.

Elphin-like she bounced around the stage of the Edinburgh Playhouse, a flirtatious, grinning, bundle of energy, belting out tracks from her latest album, The Changeling.

The year was 1982 and Toyah Willcox was at the height of her fame, as the packed 3000-seat venue attested. A front row seat - though nobody sat during the gig - ensured a great view. Could she really be so petite? Actually, tiny is a better word. Memories of that concert came flooding back the other day when I was sent a copy of I Was A Teenage Toyah Fan, by Chris Limb.

The Changeling Resurrection: 30 Years... 10 February, 2012

Toyah Newsy Bits & Pieces! 10 February, 2012
• Toyah was interviewed on Friday Focus on 'Radio Verulam' in mid-December: Toyah Willcox talks to John about her career in pop music, acting, writing and as a TV presenter. He also talks about her current role in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs which is playing at the Alban Arena over the Christmas period. The interview has recently been added to their "Listen Again" page. Listen to the interview, at the 'Radio Verulam' website, here.

• Just had to add a link to this recent upload to 'You Tube': 'Sphinx' and 'For You', the Toyah 'Flexipop' songs. It's still bewildering that these utterly fantastic songs were given away free with a, very short lived, music magazine in 1981. Anyway... listen here.

Capturing The New Romantics + Rare 80s Photos 08 February, 2012
A rare photo of Toyah from the Herbert Schulz photo session that was used in 'Stern' magazine in 1981 has recently surfaced online. It's part of a blog post announcing a new photo book(let), 'Capturing The New Romantics'.

A new exciting project has come my way. Its something very different then what I have been working for the past years but its something cool. It all started with my dad, Herbert Schulz. Thing you should now is my dad was a photographer. He did a lot of fashion and commercial ads for magazine and such.

However, in the late 70's he did something different, at that time we were living in London and he invited a bunch of strange looking folk to his studio to take pictures of them. Turns out most of the people did quite well for themselves and though they have been well documented, my dad is the only one (I think) that had the foresight to take pictures of them in a studio environment with professional make up artists.

• For further info, and to view a larger version of the above photo, visit the blog
here. Visit the Herb Schulz website here.

Speaking of rare Toyah photos: A 1981 issue of 'Bravo' magazine was recently listed on eBay. This included a Toyah article which itself included an incredibly rare photo from the famous 'Four From Toyah' session. The photo is poor quality but I'm adding it here as it's a real rarity.

The Corn Is Green: Screen Captures 03 February, 2012
Screen caps from this week's airing of The Corn Is Green on 'True Movies'. On watching this again for the first time in many years it's worth noting that it is possibly one of Toyah's finest acting roles. She was only around 20 years old when this was filmed and Toyah definitely holds her own against Hollywood legend Katharine Hepburn, with direction from another legend, George Cukor. A little known fact is that the music for this 1978 film was by composer John Barry. The Corn Is Green airs again on 'True Movies' next Friday at 1pm. Please click on the caps for larger versions.

Vintage TV: February Newsletter + Newsy Bits! 03 February, 2012
• The 'Vintage TV' February Newsletter has been mailed out and includes a photo of Toyah alongside news of their "Wall of Fame".

The Wall of Fame: The Vintage TV website is soon to have its annual spring clean, and this year we’re introducing something pretty special: the Vintage TV Wall of Fame. A photographic record of all the big names that have featured on the channel, this will be a fancy framed gallery, perfectly fitting for the stars that will inhabit it. Stay tuned...

• 'Vintage TV' also report that Christmas/December 2011 was one of their most successful periods yet. Surely it's no coincidence that Toyah was omnipresent on the channel throughout that month?: One Million Viewers Strong, And Growing: There’s no better welcome back-to-work in the miserable January weather than the discovery that Vintage TV achieved well over one million weekly viewers over the Christmas period – easily our best Christmas yet! With a fantastic 2012 schedule lined up, chock-a-block with brand new interviews and videos, one million is just the beginning.

Pointless Celebrities 03 February, 2012
Toyah tweeted yesterday: "Just off to BBC Wood Lane to record a show". The show was a celebrity edition of the BBC1 tea time quiz/game show Pointless, cleverly renamed Pointless Celebrities. Cheryl Baker of (We Used To Be) Bucks Fizz was also filming. (Thanks to PJ)

Pointless is hosted by Alexander Armstrongand is vaguely similar to Family Fortunes. Contestants must give answers to a question which had previously been asked to one hundred members of the public, but the public can give as many answers as they can think of, unlike in Family Fortunes, where everyone surveyed only gives one answer. The other major difference is the the aim - to give obscure answers rather than popular ones.

Update: Richard Osman, who is the co-presenter on Pointless, tweeted today: "So yesterday I arm wrestled Toyah. She totally called me out, and threw down the challenge. She is surprisingly strong. You can see the whole bout on Celeb Pointless". This resulted in a conversation with Mike Bushell from BBC Breakfast about Toyah, water diving and unusual sports!
