Product Description

A perfect companion to the Safari Singles Collections, this fascinating album gives an insight into work in progress by Toyah in the late 1970s and early 80s. ‘Mayhem’ comprises finished songs not included on EPs and albums, demos and alternate versions unavailable anywhere else. The 15 tracks which make up ‘Mayhem’ include the majestic opener 'Clapham Junction,' an alternate version of the Toyah classic 'Danced' and a unique cover of 'I Believe In Father Christmas' -- originally recorded for Granada TV's 1982 special 'Pop Goes Christmas.' Tracks from the demo tape which got Toyah signed to Safari Records in 1978 also feature in this anthology of lost classics, curiosities and studio doodles. The CD includes the full 15 track album with three tracks only included on the original cassette version. In addition, this brand new expanded version of Mayhem features five further bonus tracks.

Format: Audio CD
I was over the moon when it was revealed that this collection was going to be released on cd. I would have bought even without the extra tracks, but these added tracks complete the brilliance of this album.
Clapham junction has to be one of the finest Toyah tracks ever, and i cant think why this was never released as a single. It is so full of energy and emanates such a positive feel about life that anyone who does not jump up and around to this song (or even tap their feet to it)is seriously sad.The other tracks descibe Toyah to the tee as each and everyone of them have different emotions,soundscapes and landscapes that entertwine and produce not only her hair colour but colour of her life.
The demo to Its a mystery is rather haunting and even though the song is almost 3 decades old is rather fresh and somewhat new. The highlight of this release is the final track Rinaphobia. An astonishingly scary track mixed in with emotional theatricality, which creates the perfect blend of vocal and music married into one form.Sheer brilliance.
This is not only a collecters album but an album that anyone who is interested in Toyah or at least sampling her work to buy and cherish.No other album in the history of music will come close to this.
Twenty years late, however "Well done Toyah"(even though Safari released this then without you ever knowing, this is your work)

Love it, but I already had it on vinyl. Interesting to hear songs that were only meant to be demos originally.
