Ask me again in a few months. Cheers.
Hello, I recently picked "We're Mad!" and I have to say, I adore it, the guitar work is awesome, not to mention the bass and drums as well. So I went to check out your website after a friend o' mine told me about it, I was impressed, very impressed. After checking it out for a little while I stumbled across the "PLAY GUITAR WITH OLGA" section, "Could this be true?! Olga.... teaching me to play his songs?!" I said. Yes! it was true! I love your lessons, great teacher, but lets get down to brass tacks here, my question is, where did you pick up your guitar! I love it, the colour! The style! Its great!
|Glad you like We're Mad! That's an old one! Pleased you are impressed with the website, that's all down to Ciaron, this site's webmaster! The guitar lessons were his idea too! My guitar? I bought it many moons ago! Sunburst originally, then red, and then yellow!|
Hello, what's up?!
|We didn't take the DVD because
these were not THE TOY DOLLS shows, they were Lambrusco Kids shows, but,
you can purchase it from www.secretrecordslimited.com
Hi, Neil from London,
|Yeah, I agree with you about the Turtle crap! I believe that every single track that has been recorded is available on CD somewhere! Good luck!|
Hi Olga met you and the
lads after the Lucerne gig in Switzerland last year (the Irish folk!)
it was great to meet you and you were all very nice the gig was great
|Hey, yeah, I remember the
Lucerne gig; I enjoyed it, nice place. I remember you Irish folk too!
How ya doin?
Our last CD isn't that good really, but thanks! It ain't bad! I think I am a bit busy with various things over Xmas, though one of these days I will get to see SLF live!!
In 1982 I spent many nights
following THE TOY DOLLS to places such as the Smugglers at Annfield
Plain, when the line up was Flip, Happy Bob and your good self. I then
joined the Police Cadets at Durham Constabulary where I used to correspond
with you by letter, to find out about gigs etc (I still have them in
a scrapbook). To my surprise you released a song called PC Stoker -
which has a very strong resemblance to my name Stokoe and obviously
at the time I was a police officer (and still am) is this all just a
coincidence or was I some inspiration for the name.......I've wondered
for many years.
|The Smugglers eh! I remember it well! I'm afraid PC Stoker isn't about you! PC Stoker lives in the north of Durham nr the Redhills hotel, sorry aboot that!|
Bit late for this reply, sorry! I couldn't get to Bristol, What do make of the new Dickies line up? Really good I think.
Just wanted to wish you
good luck with the Lambrusco kids
|Well, thank you! It was a blast indeed!|
Hey Mr Olga!
|Mirella! The gifts are fabulous! We had a wicked time; we enjoyed every minute of being there! Cheers|
|Thank you for that info! And I shall certainly think about Maxim in a song! Cheers|
|Hey! Dont be sorry, your English is fine! Only two shows this time, with the Lambrusco Kids, hopefully more in the future. Sorry ya couldn't make it.|
And I'm so curiously... when THE TOY DOLLS come to Brazil.... We are
very anxious to your answer...Please tell us if that is possible and
if THE TOY DOLLS have plan to come to Brazil, thank you so much... Please
if be possible Estipulate any right date to come to Brazil... Thank
|Anything is possible! We had such a good time with The Lambrusco Kids! As soon as anything is confirmed it will be announced on this website! Thanks!|
Would it be possible to add titles to the lessons, rather than guitar lesson 1, 2, 3, 4...etc. Maybe it could be like "Idle Gossip part one" etc...? It would make it loads easier for us poor saps still on dial up. It would probably be easier to archive as well. I haven't had time to down load all of them, but if you have done "Wakey Wakey" intro or outro, what lesson number would it be? Thanks for you time. Jim.
|Sounds like a good idea! Please
drop an email to Ciaron
, I agree with ya, ta!
I will get that sorted now!!! Ciaron
HI OLGA, sorry to keep
hassling you mate its Stevie Gee from south Wales again. Firstly I'm
not going to ask you when you're coming back to perform anywhere in
the UK I'm just keeping my fingers and toes crossed. Next I have so
much respect for you regarding all of the song writing and playing you've
ever done, and also the time and effort you put into this website answering
questions from anyone who's anyone like me eh. I have every album you've
ever sold, and I can honestly say there is no song that I can fault,
apart from worst things happen at sea cos me dad died at sea, that's
not your fault though I fucking loves you. I gotta listen to you everyday,
fuck me I'm starting to sound gay. Just wanted to say I throw bashes
here in my house often, and my daughter who's not even 3 pogos with
me in the living room too your songs, we jump in the car (stickers all
over it) and she says "TOY DOLLS DADDY..... TOY DOLLS!" I've
been too busy with my "hard work" Thai wife making babies
and stuff to get to your gigs. First song I ever heard was on a tape
"punk mix" it said on it, pistols, crass, Buzzcocks, Dead
Kennedys, (SLF)- 78rpm, they were fantastic in Cardiff a few years back,
at the end of the tape there was Spiders In The Dressing Room and Nellie.
Since then like I said it changed my life. Great musicians, the lyrics,
haha fantastic. Always put a smile on my face!. A BIG SMILE MAY I ADD.
Rupert the bear, what do you think of that song?. my heart pulses with
excitement when I hear that one, its my daughters fav too. anyways,
hope all goes well with the kids, and get your ass back in the uk. surprising
lots of mates of mine never heard of THE TOY DOLLS before, now their
starting to get a bit upset because you're not about and I've left it
too late converting them.... which didnt take much!!!
|Wow! Cheers for all that!
Pleased yer daughter likes us! Cheers so much for the compliments, I appreciate
it. I don't mind Rupert the bear to be honest!
As for SLF, probably the worlds best punk band in my eyes!
|Of course I remember those gigs in Feltham Football Club! The first time was with The Upstarts, a looooong time ago! Bloody hot venue! But a rockin' one for sure!|
Hi Olga, I'm a big TOY DOLLS fan from Germany. saw u in Hamburg Fabrik last year in October
i believe, great show, only the Lambrusco bottle didn't work :-)Remember?
|Hey, I have always used a
Telecaster, it stays in tune and is stronger than any other guitar I have
played, I did use a Gibson for a while, but my heart belongs with the
Shame about the Lambrusco bOttle in Hamburg! Still, I really enjoyed that night! David's XR2 is nice, not too sure about the rest of Orcastrated though! As for Johnny Ramone, I wished I had met him, he was one of the greatest.
Hello! I'm in France and
I can't find your (old) albums anywhere...
|Try www.secretrecordslimited.com, good luck.|
|Hey, I love all the shows
and cities for different reasons! Loadsa special memories of loadsa gigs,
Again, as I have said before, If anything gets confirmed for the USA,
the dates will be announced on this website!
I have a question would
you want to start a band I can play drums or bass, pretty good we would
rock and it would be fun I will move to London if I have too are you
|Hey, I will remember that! Thank you, though I would play in another band, I have never thought about starting one from scratch, again!|
Hello from Croatia!
|1, I was gonna be a policeman
or join the Army!
2, Maybe it wouldn't, loadsa my songs/solos are written outta mistakes, that wouldn't happen if I knew exactly where to put me fingers.
3, Joining other bands is good for you, gives ya inspiration, and recharges yer batteries.
Cheers for that! THANK YOU for reading!
In your last show at Brazil (Sao Paulo), the Lambrusco Kids' vocal said that TOY DOLLS is going to come to Brazil in the next year (2006). I really want to know how truth is this affirmation.
In addiction, I'd like to say that you are the best one and we're anxious to see you again and all band. Although the show with Brazilian guys was fantastic, I know there aren't enough adjectives for the real TOY DOLLS and nothing replaces you!
Eternal life for TOY DOLLS!!!
|Nothing is confirmed at the
moment for Brazil, keep checking the website, any confirmed shows will
first be announced on www.thetoydolls.com!
Glad you enjoyed the show, I did for sure! Cheers
|Hey, I am fine, thank you so much for asking! No plans for Munich yet, we only just played there last year, but I did enjoy it heaps! Fantastic! Cheers.|
Q: First off, we met in
California at an Adicts show, when I saw the flyer, I thought it was
you, so I checked online and sooner or later, "OLGA ADICT"
comes up.. What the hells! That is awesome!
|Hey, just keep checking this website for any confirmed shows! I really did enjoy the shows with the Adicts, they are a nice bunch o guys.|
Hope your well,
|Cheers, I am very well thank
you! Yes Vida Loca and Lazy Sunday were both released as Singles on CD,
by Receiver Records.
And for your next question...YES I would love to play bass for the Rezillos, that's one band I would join for sure!
Hey Olga, I saw you guys
at Pukkelpop in Belgium (great show by the way). So i guess you know
my question now: WHEN WILL YOU BE BACK???
|Thanx. I enjoyed Pukkelpop, we missed Social Distortion though, boo hoo! Not sure when we will back in Belgium! The website will keep ya all informed. Cheers|
|Hello, NO, I wouldn't sign,
I am completely happy doing what I do, why should I wanna change my musical
Never tried an upright bass, someday I will!
|Hey Olga Nik from Brum here, as a lifelong guitar player and fan of THE TOY DOLLS since 84 when nellie was on top of the pops I've got to know something, how do you come up with those awkward rhythm / melody parts. For a genre of music that's slated as being performed by people that cant play and have a go heroes you truly are a virtuoso and absolutely inimitable, is it just a natural thing born of your influences and if so who are they?|
Well thank you!! No,
I wasn't born playing! Wished it was a natural talent, just spent 15
years of me life stuck in me bedroom trying to be original! Boring eh!?
