The Toy Dolls: James Bond (Lives Down Our Street) 12", (1985)

For my second list TEN TERRIFIC TOY DOLLS TELLY-TUNES list, please go visit The Big Takeover!

This week MRML celebrated 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:

9. Whimsy
Say what you will about English culture; they can pull of being whimsical without being treacly, a combination of which trips up North Americans on a regular basis. Olga & co. whether musically  or lyrically, have maintained a sense of whimsy without being twee or precious.

10. Consistency
Not a bad album or single [or 12" - like this one!] in thirty years - sure some albums were better than others but Olga's Dolls can be consistent without being monotonous.

A         James Bond (Lives Down Our Street)        
B1         "Olga... I Cannot!"        
B2         Griefsville
