Happy birthday, Toyah

Punk is the voice that shouts the loudest from the silence of inertia.

Toyah won Best Female Singer TWO YEARS RUNNING in Smash Hits.

Forty years later, I still can't quite believe that.

punk destroyed pop music for decades. It still hasn't recovered properly. It was getting back to health when fucking rap cholera spread.

I always get toyah and cindy lauper mixed-up.

thisonehasalittlehat - 18 May 2021 17:22:34 (#6 of 24)

Which one of them was in Trolls?

That's not a very nice nickname for Robert Fripp.

It was fripp's 75th birthday 2 days ago.

That you, grandad?

I mean given pop music was Pink Floyd and Yes and bay city bloody rollers at that time pop music had it coming.

thisonehasalittlehat - 18 May 2021 18:01:19 (#11 of 24)

I mean I'm a great fan of prog right but often they seemed to forget about the pop bit of pop music, and in Yes's case, the music bit as well.

Pop Music made a pretty good form in the early 80s completely reinvigorated by punk. Adam Ant is surely the finest pop star this country has ever produced.

thisonehasalittlehat - 18 May 2021 18:06:54 (#13 of 24)

Although prog also survived in the form of Marillion and Tangerine Dream so case not proven.

Something had to happen, MacP.

All depends on what you call punk, really. Much of what wiki and feckless yoof term punk I absolutely don't.

Did The Fall, Blondie, Patti Smith, Wreckless Eric and Talking Heads all make 'the same' music?

bossab2 - 18 May 2021 19:32:21 (#15 of 24)

Indeed

Yes were an abomination.

kvelertak - 18 May 2021 21:52:44 (#16 of 24)

I tried Yes for the first time recently. 'Fragile' was a interesting album worth the making, but spinning the formula out for several more albums not so much.

bossab2 - 18 May 2021 21:56:30 (#17 of 24)

There's more interesting Prog than Yes.

bossab2 - 18 May 2021 22:04:42 (#18 of 24)

Try the track 'Starless' by King Crimson

kvelertak - 18 May 2021 22:19:57 (#19 of 24)

I have that, invested in some KC last year, will give it another listen.

bossab2 - 18 May 2021 22:25:41 (#20 of 24)

Good with headphones.
