dad started being a fan of yours when he was 16 now he is 45, he wants
to know if you are writing a new album, are you? looking forward to
hearing from you , BY VINNIE AGE 8
Vinnie Yes, we are busy writing another album now! Got about half of
it done so far! Should be finished by the time you are allowed into
hey olga ! can't you come to Norway soon ?† i really love your
music, and want to see you live ! can't wait ! John
Hi Thank you! We will be back in Norway, yeah! Beautiful country!
hi, written afew questions before so here goes another, was at the
durham show last september and gotta say enjoyed it after not seeing
you's since mayfair 1985, hopefully will get to see you's again one
day, my question is what are the chances of playing some oldie songs
like come back jackie, carol dodds is pregnant, and modern schools of
motoring o the next tour? classic songs and would love to hear them
live, also i stumbled across the studio 1 tv show you did a while back
in the 80's, got it on disc to watch over and over again, was there
any other tv gigs you did like that? also an idea for the website, a
section where you explain the meaning behind each individual song, apart
from the covers, songs like come back jackie, who's jackie? and whats
the story behind it, would be a good read, any cheers and so long for
Hi We will be including more old songs next year yes! We did include
Modern School of Motoring in the mid 80s, but we may bring it back!
Not sure what the studio1 TV show is! Something I missed!? Actually
the Fulwell to Fukuoka book has sections about the songs.
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//
Not sure what that is to be honest, never heard of it! Maybe the Klub
Foot show? Tell me more about it if you can!?
Hey olga I used to live in Sunderland but i never got to see you
guys live as i had to move to Dubai, UAE. Me and my band are planning
on playing some songs from you guys like ive got asthma but i havnt
been able to find any bass tabs do you know anywhere i could get some
and hurry up and get out here for a show.. we have already had Marky
Ramone over for Dubai Desert Rock in march just gone.. it'd be better
to have sombody closer to home playin infront of the crowd though From
hello Hope you are enjoying Dubai, too cold for me! Ha! There maybe
something on the internet somewhere re tabs, I will take a look meself.
Would love to get across there, freezing here in London!
dear olga- i play roller derby in new york city for the gotham girls
roller derby league. do you like roller derby? i guess this is less
or an 'ask olga' questions, as it is a "hey olga we like you so
much that!' message. my home team is "queens of pain." our
theme is that we're dominatrixes from queens, uh, who play roller derby.
we're skating in the season championship this saturday oct 25th. we
have purchased like 400 kazoos because we're entering into the arena
to your cover of "final countdown." we highly anticipate this
to be the greatest roller derby entrance any team has EVER done in the
existence of awesomeness. i wanted to let you know that you inspired
us all, and we love you! we hope to defeat the bronx gridlock, our rivals.
attached is a photo of me with the "golden skate" trophy.
we won in 2006. damn bronx won in 2007. now its payback time. its the
final countdown! if you're in nyc saturday let me know. i'll get you
a bout ticket. love! -suzy hotrod, queens of pain: gotham girls roller
Hey! How did it go!?? Let me know! I am flattered that you are using
our Final countdown! 4000 kazoos! Wow! Wish I coulda been there. Great
pic by the way x
Hey, Dude, im a musician from Ottawa, Canada. I have played in 4 local
bands. How did you get so skilled at guitar. When i started listening
to your musician i really though it was 2 guitarist. So what are your
secrets to the perfect mix between rhythm and lead? ARe you still playing
show and if not, are† the Toy Dolls playing a reunion tour anytime
soon. If so you should come play Ottawa!
Cheers, I am essentially a rhythm guitar player, and with there only
being one guitar in the band I learn solos that don't sound like a big
hole in the sound has appeared. Yes still playing shows! Check the tour
dates and live archive for info! Would love to eventually get to Ottawa!
I know you are busy, so you don’t have to respond. I just thought
you might get a kick to know that my 7 year old son asked me the other
day if I could get you guys to play at his birthday party. I thought
that was funny. And this morning he was listening to his iPod and got
upset because he missed his favorite song (Harry Cross--- I wrote before
asking about kids’ gear and told you he used to call this song
“Allyos”). I had to show him how to go back into his iPod
so he could hear it. Anyway, hope you come to Las Vegas soon! †
hey Hi to yer son! Wow, hope he has his iPod sorted now! Will get back
to Vegas eventually!
Dear Olga, You are insanely infinitely awesome.† So is your
hair.† Where do you get it cut?† Where can I get some Toy
Dolls sunglasses so I can look totally cool like you? Chenky is a Puff
and Dez the Demon Decorator always make me want to dance.† Can
I marry you?† Joanna
Hi Thank you!! Me local barber does me hair! Here in NW London. Totally
cool eh!? Cheers! I am not keen on Chenky, but I agree with you about
Dez! Will think about your proposal! X
Hello! Have you reissued any of your albums on vinyl or should I be
looking for them 2nd hand? Also, if you decide to tour the UK again
any chance or some more obscure songs wiggling their way into the setlist?
It would be great to hear stuff like Poverty Pleadin' Peter, I'm a Lonely
Bastard or even Ron Dixon dumped D-D...
All the best, Adam
hello I don't think there have been re issues on vinyl, so I guess 2nd
hand is ya best bet! Good idea about the songs, we intend on including
some oldies next time around. Ta for ya thoughts, not many folk have
mention those 3 songs!
