Video Killed The Radio Star: Toyah – Thunder In The Mountains


More share options

You know, the likes of Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera would have us believe they are so original and outrageous and shocking and breaking new ground for female singers.

Truth is, Toyah and her contemporaries were doing it 30 years ago or more. Arguably better. And certainly without the benefit of the modern-day hyped-up marketing spin machine.

Here, from 1981, is the wonderfully overblown Thunder In The Mountains (which has always been my favourite Toyah song).

The appropriately over-the-top, Mad Max-inspired video was directed by Godley and Creme (who you can see performing their own haunting hit, Under Your Thumb, here).
