Hello Olga!! I have just learned of Sunderland FC promotion to Premiership.
I would like to congratulate you and all the Sunderland fans, because
the club did so well this season, and I wish the next season in the
Premiership will be even greater than this. The team is excellent and
really strong. I bet they will cause troubles to the big names! What
do you think of Roy Keane, do you think his guidance played a decisive
role in the promotion? And yet another question, who would you like
to see joining the club in the summer before the Premiership?
Hi Ronnie Cheers, though I havent been to Sunderland for years!
so I am not really up on whats happening! all sounds good though!
Hay Olga, please don't forget good old Germany on your tour 2007 see you, Martin
Hi Martin I know theres a German show on 1st September 2007! hope
to see ya there!

Hey Olga - thanks for replying to my question on the Glenda guitar lesson. You covered the intro and chorus in a lesson but not the solo. It'd be great if you could!

OLGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, my name is Facundo Neira, I'm 21 years old... FROM ARGENTINA- I'm just using the little english i know just to thank you for the best two shows of my life, you played all the albums and make me cry all show in the pogo!! (cause i was drunk and smoked). I had one problem, on the second show all my friends went and I brought my little brother... this last boy was too drunk and he slept all show long :-( puking all the fucking place... The favour: come again soon, plase Olga, seriously, no one here wants to wait the toy dolls for another 11 years!!! No one here deserves it. Thanks for listening to me!! Oi! Oi! Oi! HASTA LA MUERTE PA PAAAAAA!!! Dig my groove!! Olga! Please :D :D fAku ÁÁ
Faku Hi Glad you enjoyed the Argentina show, we had a great time.
We will be back for sure, if ya promise your little bro doesnt fall
Hello Olga I am VICTOR of ARGENTINA I was in the concerts that played here in my country. I was amazing, would like that that is repeated. But now I want to ask some things: 1) to that band belongs the song to that sings K«Cee (I CAN SEE YOU) in the video of Japan? 2) Because live they do not touch to songs like MELANCHOLY MARGARET or I'M A TELLY ADDICT or others of absurd ditties? 3) in the guitar classes. you could teach to WHEN YOU'RE JIMMY SAVILLE? 4) you would say to me happy birthday to you? (since today it is my birthday) Thanks to make me feel many pretty moments with your music! (sorry my english) VICTOR
Victor Hey! Thank you for that! 2 old friends of mine wrote I CAN
SEE YOU. We did play telly addict many times on tour actually, sorry
you missed it! Jimmy Saville, good idea, I will have to learn it again
myself! Hey Victor, Happy Birthday!
Linda Hi Cheers for your intimate questions!, I will leave it to
you to guess what I wear! Hope to see you in Split! really looking forward
cheers olga... just wanted to say it'll be great to have the toys in lindesberg. zorch productions will have a private stage there with a few of our bands in the beer garden. so our question is, will you join us on the zorch stage & do a little drunken jam OR just have a few beers with us? Tobba & Zorch Crew
Twould be nice to have a few beers with ya! after the show of course!
look forward to it!
Hello Olga, are you ok! Last year, we saw the show in Sao Paulo/Brazil, on the Hangar 10, and was very good. Me and my friends have one doubt. We saw that during the show, you always caught one especie of tablet, bullet and was eating/chewing. sing. Afterl, what was that? Best regards!
Thank you! Actually its just sugar-free gum, a bit a boring eh!?
Hi Olga! When are you comming to Poland?? We waiting 12 years!! (of 19.03.1995:)) And polish language lesson - Toy Dolls = Laleczki Jacek P.S. trump, trump, trump!!
Hey, you have a good memory! I wish I knew when we were coming back
to Poland, we really had a wicked time there, we will be back!! please
Hi Olga, it's about 20 years I continue listening to your songs and "David's XR2" is still the best one ever. Here's the 1st question: I took many pics of you (some with you) in Italy (november 2004) during a live show in Milan. Now I'm taking a look at your new pics (2007) and you seem younger!!! how comes? what's your secret? Here's the 2nd: I wonder why you haven't written any song about fishes, I think you can make a great tongue twister with this topic, something like "werefishes fishers" :) cheers, Danut
Danut Hey Thank you, glad you like Davids XR2! Of course I am looking
younger! tell me something new! ha! thank you for that! Will think about
the fishes theme, cheers.
Dear Olga! My Girlfriend has been busting my nuts for ages now to write you an email. She won't stop yacking about your bloody band and how much she'd like to see you guys live again. So please (I'm begging you), make your way to switzerland or austria as soon as possible. My life is in your hands. I don't know what'll happen to me if she doesn't see you guys soon. Please!!!!!!!! Sencirely yours, desperate hopeless boyfriend
Hey, we are obviously sex symbols, thats why ya girlfiend wont stop
yacking about us, something we have to live with! We will be back in
Switzerland AND Austria again, dont worry!
Hey Olga, I'm very, very, sorry. The Toy dolls were one of those bands that just seemed to have passed me by. I'm an old school Ramones punk (I'm 47 now and was there from the start). I took the American punk route, Ramones, Screeching Weasel, Queers, Groovie Ghoulies (R.I.P) etc.as opposed to the British way of thinking. However, I've just bought 'The Toy Dolls' Our last DVD. and it's fuckin' brilliant. I realise now that I've missed out and it's all my fault. Oh well, c'est la vie. Tony X
Tony Hi, Dont worry, you are not the only person that we have passed
by!!Glad you have eventually caught up with us though! cheers!
Hey Olga! I live in Wisconsin in the Milwaukee area. Any chance of a Toy Dolls show here? Also What was the insporation for the song "Telly Addict?" Thanks much, Bill
Hi Bill, we will get there eventually! I really was a telly (television)
addict, around 1992, easy song to write, just copied down what was in
Hi Olga ! I'm Florian from France. I've read that you will do a big Euro Tour so, when will this tour begin ? And I hope there will be a lot of dates in France :D
Hi there Florian, not sure where you read about a big tour in Euro,
that was 2004/5, but we will there will be a big Euro tour when the
next album is written and recorded, in a year or two. meantime, we are
playin France on June 16th! pls check the tour dates!
hey olga i was listenin to 103.9 last night and they played a solo by you and i really wanna learn it man, it sounded kinda like the end of eruption but eddie v halen, and in the beggining it started out clean and the you went distorted and its all like "john williams" so if u can respond thad be nice man thx
Hey! I guess you mean the song Me N John Williams? Its from the
album ONE MORE MAGABYTE. Good luck learning it.
Hi Olga. I loved your show in Stavanger last summer. When are you coming back? I hope it will be as soon as possible. Do you got any pix from that show? Seeya. Espen
Hi espen, how are you. Stavager is a great place, thank you. Cant
remeber getting any pics from the show. we will be touring in that area
again for sure, maybe a copule of years from now.
Hello there Let's skip the 'I'm a big fan and got all the albums' part and just move on to the question right. Saves you a whole lotta reading and me a whole lotta typing and everybody's happy. How nice. So here goes: I once lend my absurd-ditties album to a friend and some time later that friend moved to the other side of the world taking my bloody cd with him (the schmuck!). I've bought all the tracks via iTunes by now so no worry that is I bought all the tracks except Drooling banjos cause I couldn't find it on itunes. In fact, can't find it anywhere. True, I live in an underdeveloped part of the world (Belgium) so maybe that's why absurd-ditties aren't sufficiently appreciated here but still I'd like some drooling banjos. So, how do I bribe you to send me a copy (perhaps an mp3) of drooling banjos? How about it? It's for a just cause! (you see, I'd like to call myself just. Well, not just just but, say just out of bed or just peeing against the church wall, so what, go and do your funeral somewhere else will you. So: if there's any part of the world where I can find a copy of drooling banjos, please let me know! Thanks in advance and everything Bye! Wim
Wim Hi I will put Drooling Banjos up on my MYSPACE sometime for
ya! Hope ya can find another copy of Abusrd ditties! Keep checking!
Hey olga... Have you ever toured the US? if not are you ever planning on it?
hey! YES, we have toured USA a few times, had a greeaaat time! We
will be back, its been too long!
This is Jack stokoe, you know you use to live in newton hall can you rember a school called Blue Coat School? please reply Jack Stokoe age:10
Hi there Jack, I cant really remember the school, which road was
it in? I lived there for about 1 year, though I never went out! Cheers
Hey Olga, Great to finally see a UK tour coming up! I've been into the Toy Dolls for about five years or so now (give me some credit, you've been around since long before I was born!), so it'll be awesome to see you play. I just booked tickets for Glasgow, and I was wondering, what kinda songs will you be playing? I saw on another answer you'd have 'Spiders In The Dressing Room' and 'We Quit The Cavalry', but will you have classics like 'Firey Jack', 'Dig That Groove, Baby', 'We're Mad', 'Nellie The Elephant'? And some songs off the new album? Also, any idea as to what the opening and closing songs will be? Thanks very much, see you down the front in September! - Andy.
Hi Andy, cheers for buying the tickets! I guess we may throw in
Fiery Jack and Dig That Groove! its around a 75 minute set total, so
it will cover a lot o years! Hey, I am not gonna tell ya the full set
list! twould spoil it for ya! Look forward to seeing ya in Glasgow.
Anything planned in or around Newcastle gig wise pleeze??? Ruth xxx
Hi Ruth, Yeah, Durham is in , 16th september! I take it ya mean
Newcastle UK? hope to see ya there.
Hi Olga, I was wondering how you came up with all the ideas for your songs? like Nellie the Elephant James Bond Lives Down Our Street or Rupert the Bear. Theyre so cool but kinda random. Uh thats it Izzy Sane
Hi Izzy Thank you! I sit in me bedroom for months on end, tryin
to think of ideas no special formula unfortunately!
Hi Olga, I'm Veky, from Split, Croatia, I really can't believe so I wanted to ask you,are you really coming here this year? sorry for taking your time,but you and the bend mean so much to me,I would really like you to come...take care,live long,and make more songs!
Veky Hello! YES, we are coming to Split! cant wait! hope to see
Hey there Olga, hope you and all the gang are well,what i would like to know is,how do you play that constant riff on "florence is deaf". Also,you once said many years ago now,that all your songs are childish & infantile,so if you still need ideas for a cover song for the forthcoming new album, you could try these classics which i think can really come through with room for prominent bass lines & great chances for mob vocals.The songs are......"THE THING" by the great Phil Harris, better known as Baloo the Bear & the other is "THE KINGS NEW CLOTHES" from Hans Christian Anderson. Thanks for the last 28 yrs,one of my all time favs is "I TRIED TO TRUST TRACY" Cheers again Olga, Olgacrackcorn...... (Mark)
Hi Mark! Cheers for those ideas, we always need ideas for sure!
Not sure if theres gonna be a cover or not just yet, I mean on the next
album. You are the very first person to say I tried to trust tracy is
one of their favs! thank you!
Hi my name is Vlada and I am from Serbia and I am also big fan of yours, i play cello in school for musical gifted children and the mensure for cello and guitar arent so difrent so i also play the guitar when i am at my home and i tryed to play few of your songs and I am not so good at it so i wanted to ask you if you can give me a hint because i have very big fingers and I can't play in the higher positions, for example i can't play "One more megabyte" when there is a solo.

us! We did see a quite a few fans from Serbia in Sofia (Bulgaria) the
other week, great to see everyone! see ya all soon!
