TOYAH’S LETTER: SUMMER 1990

Category: Toyah's Blog

TulPrint2 [Altered Levels]Hi there!

At last my solo album is finished, in the bag and delivered safe and dry!

I’m hugely relieved as I’ve been making this monster for over a year now. I’ve never known so many things go wrong but that will be explained at a later date. It’s fab. But I’m biased.

It will either be called Ophelia’s Shadow or Graffiti. I’m afraid I cannot decide.

The photo this month is an old photo. It was taken during Trafford Tanzi in 1983. I hated it so much I refused to let it be used. Now I like it. In fact it’s going to be permanently installed in Covent Garden Theatre Museum. So this is a first for Tellurian!

At the mo I am rehearsing The Taming Of The Shrew. I’ve said it before but I will say it again. If Shakespeare is not your thing, give it a miss. But it’s going very well and I’m loving every minute.

The venues are:
Malvern Festival Theatre: 10-14th July 1990
Arts Theatre Cambridge: 16-28th July 1990
Newcastle Playhouse: 30th July – 4th August 1990
Theatre Royal Brighton: 6th – 11th August 1990
Theatre Royal Winchester: 13th-18th August 1990
Theatre Royal York: 20th August-1st Sept 1990

For those of you who can come, I hope you enjoy it.tamingl1

During July, look out for BBC1 Sunday ‘The Great Picture Chase’ at 4.30. Sorry  I have no date, it’s not been scheduled yet. After the ‘Shrew’ I hope to be touring as a singer again. I do intend to cover old material this time. The reason I am vague about the release date is I don’t want to make false promises. My aim is for September, that’s all I can say for now.Taming Flyer [front]

I would like to say a big thank you to Chris Limb for all his input. Also to all of you have contributed to Tellurian and a big thank you to Adrian Hirst for his detective work in Yorkshire where he discovered my photo on the packaging for a whole range of un-environmentally friendly hair products.

So it’s bye for now from a busy and dizzy Willcox & I hope to see you all very soon.

Much love
Toyah x
