Toyah - The Blue Meaning


On this date in 1980, Toyah released their first album, The Blue Meaning. It contained the single, "Ieya". The album reached the #40 spot on the U.K. albums chart. Their previous release, Sheep Farming In Barnet, was originally a six track EP until it was expanded to a full-length album, including the songs from The Blue Meaning, when released on CD. 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.
