Originally released in 1980, The Blue Meaning was new wave outfit, Toyah's sophomore album, following their debut, Sheep Farming in Barnet. Although both albums were released in the same year, The Blue Meaning was considered the band's proper debut, with the former album running at just over 20 minutes. Recorded at the Parkgate Studios, Battle, East Sussex with producer Steve James, the album launched the band's idiosyncratic new-wave pop sound, led by Toyah Willcox's vocals. The single "Ieya" is included.

It’s been about forty years since the singer from Joy Division took his own life, but the shadow of his death still hangs over post-punk, new wave and rock history. In just two albums, the cult band from Manchester turned grey skies, depression and urban industrialisation into beautiful music thanks to their charismatic leader, who is just as influential today.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn.
