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:
3. International Appeal
The Toy Dolls are less likely to tour North America or even the UK then they are continental Europe, South America or Asia and hence they've spread their kind of musical madness over more of the planet than almost any punk band!
Twenty-Two Tunes from Tokyo is an out-of-print Receiver Records release that captures the band's manic show at The Club Quattro, Tokyo, Japan on 27th December 1989 (from the Wakey, Wakey Tour).
