For 42 years Toyah has taken to the stage like no other. She has won numerous awards and nominations from singing to writing to acting. In 2001 Toyah was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Central England in Birmingham. In 2018 Paul McCartney awarded Toyah a LIPA Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts Companionship for Outstanding Achievement in music, drama, performance and media. Toyah has also been awarded a star on the Kings Heath Walk of Fame and a star on Birmingham’s Broad Street Walk of Stars recognising her achievements.
Named after the famous Worthing rock festival of 1970, their debut EP is made up of original songs with a Worthing theme running through them.
This exciting new band is made up of:
Rupert Latimer, who has had a long soundtrack composing career (BBC, Sky, Nintendo, RockStar Games to name a few) and releases his own music under ‘Social Skills’.
Paul Sullivan, established London and Worthing based singer/songwriter (ex Chairs, Liberty Takers).
Rob Newby, a highly original Worthing singer/songwriter who also performs as ‘Wingdings’.
Phil Lincoln, drummer extraordinaire (ex Circus People).
The PHUN CITY EP launch party will be held at Coast in Worthing on the 28th February.
Rupert Latimer, lead guitarist/vocalist and producer of Phun City, says “In essence, we are a guitar driven power pop outfit with new wave and art rock influences. Rupert continues, “The songs on the first EP celebrate the history and eccentricities of Worthing.”
