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.

Sheep Farming … I hate saying this but if I heard Sheep Farming and didn’t know it was me I’d buy that album! It’s just got some of my favouritest songs on. “Waiting”. I just … oh, I love “Waiting”! I love singing it but very few bands can pick it up because there’s no form in it.

Express & Star: Toyah’s Appeal No Mystery 29th March, 2010
The hair may be tamed, but Toyah Willcox proved she is still a rock chick at heart when she took to the stage in Bilston dressed in a black PVC catsuit.

Birmingham-born Willcox may be a recognisable face on the TV thanks to numerous presenting and reality show roles, but at the Robin 2 on Saturday night she returned to what she does best.

The It’s a Mystery star let loose with some of her biggest hits and a number of cover versions.

“Tonight, I’m going to play songs I love to party out to and I want you to party as well,”

Willcox told the crowd at the Mount Pleasant music venue.

She joked: “I’m so glad I wore PVC – it’s hot up here.” The diminutive star proved she still has the same big voice that helped catapult her to cult status in the 1980s as she blasted out old favourites like It’s a Mystery and I Want To Be Free, as well as new songs such as Lesser God.

All you lucky people attending The Robin 2 gig in Bilston, Wolverhampton tomorrow night have a real treat in store. Toyah is including three songs from ‘Sheep Farming In Barnet’ on the set-list. What I wouldn’t give to hear ‘Computer’, ‘Elusive Stranger’ and ‘Victims Of The Riddle’ live in 2010, though ‘Race Through Space’, ‘Danced’ and ‘Our Movie’ are possibly more likely!
