Kiss Of Reality

Toyah asked German progressive rock trio Kiss Of Reality if she could write lyrics to some of their music and collaborate with them in 1992. Kiss Of Reality played concerts in Poland and Europe and a handful of dates in the UK. After laying down some demos in 1992, Toyah recorded six tracks for their album in early 1993. The CD was only released in Germany and is very sought after by fans.  Toyah features on six of the eleven tracks, for which she also wrote lyrics. This is notably the only music release featuring original material to use Toyah’s full name on the album sleeve.

Originally the demo of Face The Space sold on a cassette at the live dates contained lyrics and vocals by Toyah but on the eventual album release, the track appeared as an instrumental version. Toyah performed Revive The World in the live concerts with the band.
