For my list TEN TERRIFIC TOY DOLLS TELLY-TUNES list, please go visit The Big Takeover!
This week MRML celebrates Sunderland, England's The Toy Dolls, a pop-punk-oi trio that have been rocking the world since 1979 under the leadership of singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer/cartoonist/sole original member Olga, by building a list:
Ten Terrific Toy Dolls Traits:
1. Those big hooks that get hammed home by the gang vocals.
If there's on thing you can count on every Toy Dolls album it's hooky, catchy, silly songs with massive backing vocals. From "Nelly the Elephant" to "Geordie's Gone to Jail" to "I'm a Telly Addict" to "Christmas Credit Crunch" Olga & co. deliver the hits!
For proof check out this audio bootleg of a TV gig from 1985 (the videos themselves are over at the Big Takeover list) to see the band's live cheek!
If you want the list (and the rarities) to continue tell us your own favourite things about the band in the COMMENTS section (which is where you'll find the Live at Studio 1 link).
