Hope to see ya soon
HI OLGA!!!! are you going to come to argentina soon again??? I couldn't go to your show cause i was at f'ckin' work aaaaaaaaa!!!!! please answer please come!!!
Hey, we had a blast in Argentina,
sorry you missed it! we will be back in South America for sure, not

Hi Olga! Unfortunately, due
to work commitments I cannot make it to the Augustibuller gig but will
catch you in Durham instead. I am sure you will find Augustibuller a
great little festival. As always my e-mail turns out to be a little
mini interview but here we go:
Hi Jonas, nice to hear from
you. Augustibuller was a blast, very friendly people. I am afraid Solitary
Confinement was only for Japan release, if I can get some copies we
will bring them to the UK shows, if poss! Not sure how many One More
Megabytes LPs were pressed, I have seen a few around the world, I think
your best bet is to search for it in USA, thats where I have seen most
copies. It was probably a mistake by Kcee on Cavalry! not sure, I do
write the bass lines for the songs, bass is my favourite instrument!
Though Tommy does add certain things to enhance it all. Cheers for the
ideas! Oh God, Durham, I am shaking already! lookin forward to it though
for sure!! Take care
Hi olga!are you working for a new cd?can you give one's regards to abe from cagliari?please.....thank you!
Hi Abe! Yep, working on new
stuff, gonna be even more hard at work after September, when the touring
ends for a while.
Hi Olga, I used to go a see you at the Norseman at Peterlee in the early 80's just found loads of your vids on you tube and I am re living my youth again. Do you have any planned dates to be playing live in the North East soon, I have just introduced by 12 year old son to the toy dolls and he is busting to see you live and me also Cheers Phil.
Phil Hi! I remember the Norseman
well! Yes we will be playing Durham University in 16th September, though
its sold out now, there is a gig in York on 19th. Hope to see ya there.
Cheers for getting in touch!
I know, that this is not the first question about show in Poland, but I have to ask. Maybe your management will read this ;-) I've been to show in Poland in 1995. I've got the T-shirt from then till know (it is a bit small for me know, but never main :) It was really greate, and I can't stand waitin' for the next one. Now I'm nearly 30 y.o. but I'm still excited finding your new songs. I'm really waitin' for you in Cracow. Micha
Hi Micha we love Kracow! we
will be back eventually, and there will be a new album, working on it
now! Hope to see ya in Poland!
Hi mi name is alf from mexico and im a big fan of you guys, you really kick ass! i have all your albums and i hear them all, ehe he, i think you will be rocking forever! jeje one more question... can you put the lesson for the song "Poltergeist in the pantry" please?? salutes Alf
Alf Hi Thats an idea, will
practice Poltergeist first! Cheers for the compliments! Take care
Hi there.I saw your gig at "augustibuller" augusti 4 and I must say you sounded great and performed a really great show.I also saw you perform in Sweden 1988 (Sweden/Brasil-tour!!) and 1990(91?).Toy Dolls is still as good as ever(and yes, you look younger than Animal but ANWL is also a nice band).Is it really true that you have not played England so much because you have not been so pleased with the lineup?I always thougt that it was "violence/nazi-crap- reasons".Hope to see you in Sweden again(with a full set).Keep it up! Best wishes Bjorn Ulenius Sweden
Bjorn Hi Thank you!! Augustibuller
was great, a fantastic festival with loadsa great bands, we really enjoyed
it, though me voice was gone! ANWL were very nice people, and a great
band, nice to meet them for the first time! There are a number of reasons
we havent played UK, main reason is the line up, but I am very happy
now, and the UK tour starts on 13th September!! See you back in Sweden!
Mr. Olga my names Matches and im from Chicago. I have an idea for a tattoo but i need the sheet music for Nellie the Elephant. My question is do u happen to have a book of all your songs in sheet music form? and if so where can i get it? cause i think that would be pretty nifty if i could get that so i can also play your great songs on my trombone. I know im am sure you have been asked this so many times its not even funny.. but um when does the band plan on coming to the usa ill drive anywhere in the usa to see the band but every year goes by and still no usa tour im kinda going to go in a hole and cry if you guys don't come up here heheh... id like it more that the band is closer to seattle but then again seattle sucks now.. I keep looking every once and a while to see if the updates say anything about the usa tour. I saw something a while back but havent read anything since.. so I stoped looking all the time and have moved to looking about every 2 weeks to a month and a half.. so I know there is a lot of people in the usa that is kinda wondering what is going on and if and when the band is coming here.. we all love ya over here and cant wait to see you... just asking cause ive been waiting since the last tour I did not know happened in the usa I missed.. if I can do anything to help along the tour in the usa ill do anything I can, I know a cupple places in seattle that would love to see ya there but please let me know
Hi Matches Unfortunately there
isnt a Toy Dolls manuscript book yet, though I know you can buy the
sheet music for Nellie the Elephant, originally written by Butler and
Hart, I have seen it in music shops! USA will happen, always waiting
for information, we hope ya can wait a while longer!! Take care
hi olga.. i'm from sweden. i'm just starting to listning to you.. thinks that you are a awesome group.. so i wondering when you coming back to sweden next time? i know you were here just now on augustibuller.. (there you meet my friend,who haved listning to you seens 1984) so when are you coming back here to play again? take care now,hugs Frida
Frida Hi Sweden will be included
on the next big European tour, when the next album is written and release
ina a year or two. Hope to see ya there!
Agh! I'll never forgive myself. I missed the Sweden gig. Will there be any footage or maybe some video of it? Just so I can see what I missed? And will you be back in Sweden in the near future? Best regards, (fat) Bob.
Fat bob hi Augustibuller was
wicked! sorry you missed it, I think there are some vids on Youtube,
good luck! Take care
This is The Elk from Sweden (again). I wrote to you before your concert in Sweden (Augustibuller). Just wanted to say that it was the best fucking concert in my life (and therefore my best birthday also). I stood in the front row and I cried. It was so fucking great! Really good playlist too, even though I hoped to hear a few other songs to. But it was awesome! Have you decided if you would come to Sweden soon again, and if you'll come, would it take as long time since previously?!? I really hope you'll come soon again. // The Elk
Elk Hey! Thank you so much,
we also had a fantastic time there. Happy Birthday for then! We will
be back in Sweden, great people! Cheers
Alrite olga? Im 15 and in a band up sunderland having daft practices now and then. Just wondering how you go about writing songs. Do you jsut make a riff and build on that or actually make lyrics first and dee all that carry on. Cheers, ev
Ev Hi Cheers for your question,
love to Sunderland! Hey, theres no rules for songwriting, sometimes
the lyrics come first, sometimes a melody or riff. always different,
though its 70% of the time that the melody that comes first, with me
anyway! Good luck
hello there olga. my dad got me listening to your band from an early age. his first record that he ever bought of the toy dolls was the dig that groove baby lp. which i now have, i have collected most of your cds, and i noticed that you are doing a gig in durham in september. i was wondering if you could spare 2 tickets cause there all sold out. please help me olga. liam dillon
Liam Hi I really wished we
had spare tickets for Durham, our guest list is now full also. Hopefully
theres somewhere else on the tour you can make, I know there are tickets
still left for York. Hope to see you somewhere. Take care
Dear olga, Me and my dad have tickets to see you at durham university on the 16th september. As it is my dads 44th birthday and 25th wedding aniversary, Is there any chance we could get a photo or have a chat with you as it would mean the world to him. he has been your numebr 1 fan since the start and has everything you have ever done. we live in hartlepool and my dads name is kurt beattie thanks very much hope to hear from you
Hi there We will pop out after
the show and say hello, be nice to meet ya. A double congratulations
to yer Dad! Cheers
Hi! First I wanna say I have all albums from Toy Dolls. I really like the "Orcastrated" album, and I think "Please Release Me (Darling I Loathe You)" is just perfect. Your guitar is always somethin' to inspire any guitarrist or musician (I'm a drummer!!!), and the drums are awesome like the others albums. But my question is: I have a band in Brazil, called "Cardume" means "School of fish" in english, i guess...whatever, I dream with a guitar solo from you in one of my songs, is that possible? And sorry about the english, I'm brazilian...
Hi! cheers for getting all
the albums, wow! Thank you for the compliments too! Good luck with School
of Fish! maybe we will meet someday, we can can talk about it then,
see you when we get back to Brazil! Take care
Alright olga! you might not remember me but i was the scruffy little punk who wouldn't stop spitting at you back in SEPTEMBER 1985 at ADAM & EVES! you might recall that you got me back by spitting in my face on the way out! fair play to you. Anyway i kept that phlem, extracted the dna (when the technology arrived) artificially inseminated my bird & well you can guess the rest! By the way me & little olga are comin to see you at LEEDS COCKPIT on 13/9/07. p.s. i'm 41 & fat now, so i'll only be at the front for a couple of songs & i won't have any spare spit!! looking forward to it. from THE DAVE, BRAMLEY PUNX FOREVER.
Dave Hi Look forward to seeing
you back up in Leeds after all these years! and the young n also! Cheers
nar then olga cant wait for
the uk shows (were gonna five) is there a after show party for the islington
gig as we are coming from barnsley to that one. if there is can we come
please? and can you possably send my mate a happy birthday comment as

Hey! 5 shows, wow! thank you!
not sure about the after show party yet, waiting for our management
to let us know! we will need a drink by then! Happy birthday to yer
mate, Leon? is it? see ya in Leeds! Take care Hi to all in Barnsley!
hey olga... i'm from croatia, and i've been the toy dolls fan for 10 years (now i'm 17). in fact, i listen punk and ska music for nearly 10 years, but you're my first and only favourite band! i have my own band (i'm the drummer) and of course, our highest priority is to play like toy dolls. anyway, i don't have any particular question, and i'm quite sure that you've had enough of those pesky fans who are all the time bragging about themselves and talking about how much they love you... well, to be perfectly honest, i was really in love with you couple of years ago :))))) (i was young and stupid)... unfortunately, due to my "under age" and very strict parents, i wasn't able to come to any of your previous live shows performed in croatia. although this year, i was planning on to go to split, but i was very, very, very sad and disappointed when i found out that you won't perform. however, you have no idea how big is my wish for you to come again in croatia!! i would be SO HAPPY!! so please, please, PLEASE come to croatia, one more time, i assure you that here are a lot of toy dolls fans!! oh yeah...and... how come that it is so difficult to buy the toy dolls albums? i mean, i have to go all the way to vienna or graz or something like that to buy it (because i like to have the original cd), and it's not fair. always yours, Lucija
Lucia Hi Thank you so much.
We were also very sad about the Split gig, we were all ready to come,
then the promoters cancelled it, we will be back in Croatia for sure,
we love it there! distrubution for the albums isnt the greatrest when
you are at our kinda level, (the bottom!) hopefully we will start to
bring more albums to gigs next time around! Look foward to the next
Croation show, we always come out to meet people after the show, come
up and say hello, it would be nice to meet ya! Take care
Valentijn Hi Did we get to
meet Loes after the show? I hope so! CONGRATULATIONS anyway! and so
sorry if we missed ya. we did come out to speak with people after the
gig, hope one of em was you!! Take care

I was in Buenos Aires in October
in the recital I CAN SAY THAT I AM an ADDICT one TO TOY DOOLS
Nene Retrete Hi! Thank you!
you make me feel old! ha! look forwrad to seeing you again in Buenos
hello olga! my name is corey i am from st. louis, missouri, usa. the toy dolls have become one of my favorite bands. and i would love the opportunity to see the toy dolls live, and if you would maybe do a tour through the u.s. it would pretty much make my year. so how about it? adios, and keep on making that amazing music.
Corey Hey! Thank you, and
yes, we will gaet back to the States! hope you can wait for us! Cheers
Yo Olga, I was wondering when The Toy Dolls are coming again in Belgium. It has been already so long ago.... I need to get my case of beer cold before they come so are there dates planned? Cheerz Koen
Hi Koen We have always enjoyed
Belgium, and I am sure we will return. Probably on the next main European
leg of the next tour. Hope to see ya there
I've got yet another burning question for you to answer. What sort of equipment do you use in terms of amps and stuff like that? Like how to you make the Guitar and Bass sound like it does in "Jeans Been" and "Sod The Neighbours" and other heavyrockin' songs like that? Sorry I'm writing at this address, but I think you should be the best target for that question. I've found such site: www.mp3fiest.com. They're selling music in mp3 format. My question is: are they doin' it legally or not? Do you know about them, and if I'll pay them, do you get your part of my money too? :) You know what I mean. For a long time I'm not able to buy your new albums in Poland. The last i bought is Orcastated... it's more than 10 years... I'm not too happy watching new titles which are not accessible for me. I'd like to buy all new albums, but I have no proper source in Poland... Can I buy them there?
Hi Thank you! the guitar equipment
is a marshall JCM 800 2203, and a Fender Telecaster standard, bass is
a Musicman Stingray and an Ampeg SVT top with a 8 x 10 cab. not sure
about that site, best to ask Secret Records I think! You should be able
to get all albums from Captain Oi, or Secret Records Limited, both on
G'day Olga, Yep, I'm an Aussie and have been a fan of the Toy Dolls since about 1988 and have most of your stuff on vinyl (yeah, it still exists in Australia). I am going to be in London at the end of September and was overjoyed to find out about the Carling Academy Islington gig...but I just found out that it is sold out! (sob). Is there any chance of getting a ticket for this show, or will there be tix at the door? I don't think you've played in Australia...could you come down and play there!?? (please) Ta...Mick
Mick Hi Thank you! I heard
that the London gig has tickets on the door, but I think there are only
a few left. Maybe if you contact them and tell them your position, hopefully
they can send you them? Let me know what happens. Good Luck
