Toyah

So one of the mantra’s I carry around in my head is this;

‘The past is is the past’

I rarely look back if Im honest……. (Ok I did get goose bumps when I met and photographed Paul and Mick from the Clash)

On Saturday Aug 9th I had the opportunity to photograph Toyah live at the Osfest in Oswestry Shropshire….. Boy that took me back!

 

Toyah in the late 70’s and early 80’s was a massive bundle of  Punk energy…. Not only a recording artist but on TV and film as well! (Yes at a young age I had a little crush) seeing her locally a couple of times……. They were amazing gigs!

I do remember my parents speaking about her as she racked up her big hits in the 80’s….. But by then as most teenagers in the know, I had moved on, to keep my cred !

Still at Osfest I was reminded by her older songs in the set why I bought her early records (EP’s ) in the first place!

Still a bundle of energy at nearly 57 she bounced around the stage throughout her set bringing back memories…. Thanks to my FujXT1 I caught every minute…….

Memories …..
