The Toy Dolls: Live at Studio 1 (1985)




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!

  3. Wonderful band! Just got their new album yesterday and I have to say it's every bit as classic as their older material. Seek it out!

  4. Nellie The Elephant was their biggest hit in New Zealand. A shame it wasn't one of their originals. I listen to their Anthology a lot. It took a long time to listen to both discs as the first one demanded constant replaying.

    1. Yeah their catalog is really worth digging into, even if they never surpassed those early records.
