COVER OF THE WEEK – Graceful TOYAH And Her Rhythm Slaves

19 August 2022

TOYAH and ROBERT FRIPP do not need an introduction whatsoever anymore,
if you ask me (also if you don’t ask me). Both had/have notable successful careers
and both together have their Sunday lunch on YouTube, every week for more
than two years now.

About 2 months ago the lovebirds picked Grace Jones‘s giant 1985 hit
Slave to the Rhythm to entertain us with it on the laziest day of the week.

Recently T & R recorded their cover of that soulful pearl, fully orchestrated,
as a new Toyah single, and shared an accompanying video so you can join
sexy Toyah for a little dance to this sensuous interpretation with her seductive
posh pop voice as the star in the middle and the trippy guitars of King Robert
and Simon Darlow on the sides, left and right. They’re rhythm slaves to Toyah.

your hips, ladies, and gents.

The gracious original

And more TOYAH news.

Remastered and expanded editions of her Gold-selling album
Anthem (which turned 20 years last year) will be launched on
9 September.
