hi there again, i wrote in the previous ask olga session, about
the studion one tv gig that you couldn't recollect? as i am looking
at it it was teddy on drums and dean on bass, the song line up was
1. Glenda and the Test Tube Baby
2. Spiders in the Dressing Room
3. 007 James Bond
4. Nellie the Elephant
5. Teddy Bear
6. Have Some Fun Tonight
7. When the Saints Go Marching In
8. She Goes to Finos
looked like a canny gig, would love to kno if you did any other tv gigs
in the 80's(post85),
i have this on disc, if theres an address i could send it to i could
post it so you could pop it onto the site? cheers
Andy, Now I think I know it, it wasn't an actual gig, just a TV show,
we sucked, I remember now! I think it was in the North East of UK, maybe
Thanks for the offer of the disc, but its one o those gigs I wanna forget!
We did quite a few TV things in the 80s throughout the world, I don't
have a list of all of them, but we have included a Swiss TV show on
Olga, I read somewhere that
you don’t care for “A Far Out Disk”. That is surprising,
because, it is my favorite Toy Dolls CD. Is it still available?
I’ve lost mine & I can’t seem to find it anywhere.
I’m happy to pay for it.
Thanks for 20+ years of nuclear nursery rhymes for the not quite grown
That's right, I don't like A far Out disc much at all! I think it's
available on CAPTAIN Oi still, though I wouldn't buy it!
Hi Olga, I'm Freddy From Tuscany, Italy.
I totally agree with the guy who asked you to play live "I'm a
lonely bastard", It's a great song...but in my own opinion one
of yours best is "the psychosurgery"! I don't know what you
think bout it but let me say that this song rocks!! have you ever played
it live? I hope you're going to come to play in italy during the next
year!! see ya!
I am not keen on Pyschosurgery myself! And we haven't played it live
Fingers crossed for something in Italy in 2009!
herrow olga, you're not too keen on chenky?! well you wrote
it so i know what that's like to not be too keen on one's own work. but
here's a burning question for you. do you not realize you sound
like a badass guitar riff god when you play the chorus from
poh-oh-oh-uff into the whistling? whoever did the whistling sounds
like the most charming, eyeball-rolling asshole there ever was.
also, the bass+vox at the beginning of cheatin' chick from china is
BRIIILLIANT.. [killer chord changes and solo in there,
too] really, so fucking good i cannot explain. another two
i love are razzmatazz intro and olga crack corn. razzmatazz
is just so killer. it's a minute long verse/chorus number
with such awesome-ness and energy packed into it. i
need to start finding functional adjectives other than awesome, killer and
badass [and sexy?]. the japanese version of geordie is amazing
too, in fact, the reverb made the vocals even more wicked... goodness,
who mixed absurd-ditties? all the vocals/guitars/drums sound so
warm and dry and wholesome.. the key change in my wife's
a psychopath is done in the solo? brilliant. and the way
you sing telly addict... jeez. also, i really like
how the snare and guitar sound in nellie [but of course it's also how
there's much more. but i can only think of these for now.
there are just all these things i find when i listen to these songs
that just blow me away. far far away. but i'm dancing while
all that is happening.
seriously, you are so much of an awesome badass wicked killer [sexy?] genius
that, ugh, i don't know. so i guess summing up all the questions
into one is, marry me?
ps: i'd really like to see toy dolls live, too. any california
shows? really really look forward to the new album.
Cheers for all that! No, I am not keen on Chenky! The whistling was
done by mates from Angelic Upstarts, Crashed Out, loaded 44 etc..
I agree about Absurd Ditties, dunno how it turned out so nice, It was
mixed by John Spence in 1993.
No California shows planned just yet, we love I it there and always
have a wicked time, busy working on the next album now!
Will ponder on your proposal!
Just replaced my Toy Dolls Vynal with 7 cds, but can you tell me what
album is Duelling Banjos on.
Been a fan since 82
Thanks keep it going & long live the punk revolution
Drooling Banjos is on ABSURD DITTIES, and THE HISTORY PART 2.
Cheers for your support!
I saw you at the Åndalsnes-gig in Norway in 2006! And, you
signed my "Cheerio Toodle-Pip" vinylsingle! That was great!
I was thinking, if you came to Norway again, could my band do the supportjob?
Let me hear from you!
I remember that tour, really enjoyed it, it was Duncans first gigs with
Will bear you you mind for support for sure.
Hello, I have a vhs tape recorded from back in the 80's with you
guys playing in studio 1 in london. It was broadcast I think 1985 or
so. I can't find any info on the gig on your site nor the internet.
It's you, Teddy and Dean so it has to be from around 1985-86. I would
love to have an exact date. Any ideas? Best Pete//
I think I answered this question above, check it out!
Sorry I don't have an exact date, but 85/86 for sure, that was the period
Teddy and Dean played together.
Thanks for answering my first email. This is Suzy Hotrod again, from
NYC's own Gotham Girls Roller Derby. I bet you've been dying to know
that Queens of Pain was victorious in our Championship bout. Here's
a photo of the proud team with the trophy. Thanks for providing the
theme song for the night! Our all star travel team is made up of girls
from our 4 home teams. And we skate against other cities. We just participated
in the Womens Flat Track Derby Association's National Tournament in
Portland, Oregon over the weekend, and we won the entire thing! WE'RE
OFFICIALLY THE #1 TEAM IN THE COUNTRY! (I'd like to think that us watching
Toy Dolls videos on YouTube at the hotel the night before our last game
had a little something to do our victory?) If it didn't, it still made
for a good time, cause my teammate Ana Bollocks has asthma and I believe
is taking your tune as her unofficial theme song.
love! -suzy hotrod
Another great pic, thank you!
Greetings to Ana, I know how it is with Asthma, had since I was a teenager.
Keep up the great work!

As it's the most wonderful time of the year (so they say), I am listening
to my huge collection of obscure christmas songs and I'm missing a Toy
Dolls tribute to this. I own a CD of a (japanese?) band called "Nicotine"
who do their best at sounding like the real thing, but they just don't
have the style (and virtuosity).
So, my question is: Did you ever thought about doing a festive album
"Toy Dolls-style" (with a couple of "new"
christmas songs along with cover-versions) or is this just too far out
Greetings from Germany,
I have thought about it to be honest, and we may well do it in the future!
See ya back in Germany!
I can clearly remember my brother coming home one day in the eighties
with the "Dig that Groove " album. Although I was young (about
11 or so) the happiness and grooviness was so apparent on that album
that, eventhough I couldn't understand a word (I'm from the Netherlands
you see), it directely send a smile on my face. I was rather pleased
to hear you guys are still alive and kicking. By the way Olga, I'm a
guitar player myself (not punk though, if you really want, but
don't bother, you can check it on www.pebbles.nu ) but have to say you're
the best guitar player punk ever has seen! So there you have it, not
even a question, saves you the trouble answering. Maybe see you in Schijndel
remember to dig that groove!
Will check out your link.
Cheers for your comments! I wish I was the best player! Check out Del
from the Test Tube Babies and Lee from Crashed Out!
Hope to see ya in Schijndel!
