A SPECIAL COLLECTION OF RARE & ARCHIVE MATERIAL
Mayhem consists of outtakes, unused demos and work in progress material recorded by Toyah during her time with Safari Records.
Originally released in 1985, Mayhem was compiled and released without Toyah’s involvement. Mayhem was repackaged and reissued in 2005 and includes a further five previously unreleased bonus tracks. It was repackaged with archive images and track-by-track sleevenote revealing the origins of these songs, shelved demos and versions.
The original album sleeve in 1985 was an intentionally cut n’ paste job of previous Safari promotional images to create a collage for the front and back. For the 2005 reissue, the sleeve was recreated with better quality sources to updated the montage for the front and include additional rare shots for the back sleeve.
