We Are the Humans
We Are The Humans is a 2009 studio album by The Humans. It is the debut release by the experimental band formed by singer Toyah Willcox, former REM drummer Bill Rieflin and musician Chris Wong. The band performed their first concerts, previewing the album, in Estonia in October 2007. The album was then recorded in Seattle during 2008. The band then returned to Estonia to perform the album in May 2009. They were joined on stage by Willcox's husband Robert Fripp.
Mayhem is a compilation album by the British new wave band Toyah, released in 1985. It is a collection of previously unreleased material consisting mostly of demos and tracks not included on previous albums. When the band left Safari Records, the record company found enough material to compile one last album; this was apparently done without the consent of the band members. In spite of that, it was well received by the band's fans.
"Of all the albums I wish had not been released Mayhem is the one. It's sub standard, with songs not intended for release. In fact it makes my blood boil when I think of the plain exploitation of this album, but hopefully it never sold many copies. The songs on it were rehearsal demos, never intended for anything other than workshopping ideas", Toyah commented later.
The Changeling is a 1982 album by Toyah. Released in June 1982, the album peaked at number 6 on the UK Albums Chart and was certified Silver in 1982 for selling more than 60,000 copies in the UK. It included the Top 30 single "Brave New World".
Original vinyl issues of the album came complete with a lyric insert, the background of which featured drawings of circuit boards. Around the lyrics of each song were sections of poetry written by Toyah Willcox, which were not included on the album.
The album was produced by legendary record producer Steve Lillywhite using early digital studio recording equipment. Some overseas editions, such as the Dutch release, featured an additional 'Digital Recording' logo on the cover sleeve.
A completed out-take from the sessions for The Changeling named "Warrior Rock" appeared as the B-side of the LP's only single release "Brave New World" and on the later CD reissue. Another out-take entitled "Paradise Child", later surfaced on the Safari Records collectors album Mayhem.
Anthem is a 1981 album by Toyah. It was the band's most successful album, reaching number 2 in the UK Albums Chart and featuring the Top 10 singles "It's a Mystery" and "I Want to Be Free". The album was certified Gold in 1981 for selling more than 100,000 copies in the UK.
Original vinyl issues of the album came complete with a colour insert featuring photographs of the band wrapped in bandages, with various exposed body parts sprayed gold, and Egyptian themed drawings across the lyrics pages. A picture disc variation, featuring the albums front and back artwork and no sleeve, was also issued at the time.
The Blue Meaning
The Blue Meaning is the second studio album by the English new wave band Toyah, released in 1980 through Safari Records. Although not the first full-length release, this is often considered to be the band's first "proper" album.
It saw its first release on CD in 1990 on the Great Expectations label, and was reissued in a double-CD package with Sheep Farming in Barnet in 2002. The latter release was remastered and included two bonus tracks.
Sheep Farming in Barnet
Sheep Farming in Barnet is the debut studio album by the English new wave band Toyah, fronted by Toyah Willcox. It was originally released in 1979 as a 6-track extended EP, dubbed an 'Alternate Play' record by Safari Records, and was expanded into full-album status the following year. The album was later reissued on CD, cassette and white vinyl by Great Expectations in 1990, and again on CD by Safari themselves in 2002, digitally remastered and coupled with the band's second album, The Blue Meaning.
The album was produced by Steve James and future band member Keith Hale and was released as an AP on 3 August 1979, with the album version following in February 1980. The album was originally compiled by the band's German record label, EMI Electrola, but the importation of the disc was so widespread, Safari decided to cash in and follow suit. The tracks added included several songs which did not make the original track listing and the début single "Victims of the Riddle", plus its B-side "Victims of the Riddle".
The album's title refers to sheep being seen in a field in Finchley just off Regent's Park Road.
Love Is the Law
Love Is the Law is the fifth studio album by Toyah, released in October 1983. It was the last album to be released by the band before singer Toyah Willcox embarked on her solo career, though subsequent albums would still be released as "Toyah".
The album reached No. 28 in the UK Albums Chart and included the Top 30 hit "Rebel Run".
It was first released on CD in 2005, containing five additional bonus tracks.
Sugar Rush is a 2011 studio album by The Humans. It is the second album by avant-garde rock singer Toyah Willcox and bassists Bill Rieflin and Chris Wong, a trio formed in 2007. The music is augmented in the studio with other instruments, notably the guitar of guest Robert Fripp of King Crimson, who appears on every track of Sugar Rush. Igor Abuladze joined The Humans on their US and UK tour in 2011 in support of the album.
It was released in the USA on 27 September 2011 by The End Records and in the UK and the rest of the world on 2 October 2011 by Vertical Species.
Toyah! Toyah! Toyah!
Toyah! Toyah! Toyah! is a live album recorded by Toyah on 17 June 1980 at the Lafayette Club in Wolverhampton. The concert was also filmed by ATV as part of a TV documentary about the band and its eponymous singer. The album reached No. 22 on the UK Albums Chart and was certified Silver in 1981 for selling more than 60,000 copies.
The album saw its first CD release in 1990 on the Great Expectations label. A new remastered reissue Toyah! Toyah! Toyah! was released on 30 October 2006 via Cherry Red Records. This expanded edition features extra live tracks from 1980 and from the 1982 The Changeling tour. The latter tracks include those cut from the abridged CD release of Warrior Rock: Toyah on Tour - albeit taken from a different concert of the same tour recorded for "Warrior Rock". Six of the eight bonus tracks are previously unreleased.
The new edition includes an introductory note from Toyah Willcox and a sleevenote by Craig Astley, in addition to rare live photographs.
