Toyah - Bird In Flight


On this date in 1980, Toyah released their third single, "Bird In Flight". It was backed by "Tribal Look". Neither song was included on an album in it's studio form (though both were captured live on Toyah! Toyah! Toyah!) until the combined Sheep Farming In Barnet/The Blue Meaning combination was released on CD which included both tracks as bonuses. The Birmingham, England post punk/new wave band was fronted by Toyah Willcox. She stepped away from music in 1997 to concentrate more fully on her acting career but has resurfaced with her band in recent years.
