hey olga, great to hear you're about to play france again, looking forward to seeing you in toulouse. you will no doubt love the brand new bikini, it is far better than the previous one. it may not be as cool as the original tiny one, but the sound is definitely gorgeous, and the athmosphere is great too :)) mleu x
Hi! Thank you! We are really happy to be coming back to France, cant
wait! Yes, very interested in seeing the new Bikini club! See ya in
Hey Olga Has there ever been a book written about the Toy Dolls? It would be kinda cool to read up on the history of the band etc. If there is one, do you know where I can get hold of a copy? Thanks Johnny, California, USA
hi Yes, there is an official biography called "The Toy Dolls -
From Fulwell to Fukuoka", written by Ronan Fitzsimons. You can
order it online direct from the publisher at www.ardrapress.co.uk/store.php.
Hello! I'm an 18 years old boy from southern france.here's random questions i'd like you to answer if you have time: which uni did you go to and what did you study there? How would you tell a girl you love her? what would your job be if not musician? were you good at school? What's the best programme if you want to spend a day in london and have lots of fun? thank you
Ha, I didn't go to University! I left school when I was 14! Mmm, a love
question eh! Have to think about that one! Estate Agent for sure, if
I wasnt a musician. Not so good at school, I hated it to be honest!
A day in London, visit all the pubs in Soho! then take the boat trip
from Little Venice, then all the pubs in Camden! I am quite partial
to a stroll through Regents Park also! Theres a good pub just outside
it! Hope to see you on the French tour!
Hi ! Maxime from France ! I was so happy to see you at Au Pont
du Rock, that was a great moment, and so big pogos ! And now what happen
? A tour in my land for the end of the year ! I will try to see you
again, but this time, hope I will be able to meet you and have
an autograph or take a photo with you (maybe). Last time, they did not
let me see artists after stage...
Hi Merci! We loved the time at Au Pont Du Rock. We always come out after
the shows, so certainly we will meet you, photos/autographs no problem
on the French tour! I pick up glasses from around the world, and many
fans have given me some really nice pairs! Tommy Goober, Muscular!?
Not the description I would use! but yes, I envy his physique! See ya
Good day to you Sir, firstly,ive just found out that you wrote "She
Goes To Finos" in Hillview community centre in 1977, &
that the actual title never came about until 1979, a whole 2 years later.
Ive just received my Australian release of Nellie,to go with my
82/84 Uk releases,French,Germany & Japan editions. Also i have
just managed to get my hands on a copy of the original "tommy Kowey`s
Car" single. Only a $104.00 . What a bargain.
Good day to you too Mark! I don’t even have a Tommy Koweys car

for the updates like i do..cuz we are big toy dolls fans :D
Cheers! I remember seeing Laughing Nose on the telly in Tokyo about
1986, amazing! Never got to see them live though. I hope Alice gets
in touch with you! Good luck
Hi Olga My 5 year-old Aiden will listen to nothing else in the car but Toy Dolls, especially Poor Davey and Firey Jack. You must keep touring for a few years, he's still a bit small to take to a concert quite yet! Cheers for years of fun. Gaz
Hi Poor you being forced to listen to The Toy Dolls by little Aiden!
Hope we are still around when he can attend a show! Cheers
Howdy! Im an american Texan who's dream guitar is a tele. like yours, the 70's model. I first heard it on your album, and i fell in love. i love the sound. and i want one so bad. but i have a ball and chain and and we're getting married. so i can't afford it, and probably won't for a really long time...:( do you have a spear tele to give you don't use anymore? i want one so bad. And i've worked for so long, but know my money's gotta go to the one i love. It would make me so happy if you could give me one. -fan since a baby Brandon Dean Floyd p.s. it could be a wedding present :)
Congratulations!? Ha! No spare Teles at the moment unfortunately! Glad
ya like the sound though! Good luck with the wedding/marriage!
Dear Olga, I was wondering if youre ever goin to call up maybe....Dean Robson....and lets say Marty..... to do some gigs with you? They were my faves. Im sure they would love to do a gig or two. Juan
Juan That's an interesting idea!, maybe sometime in the future, if they
haven’t forgot the songs! Its been 10 years since Marty did a
Toy Dolls gig and 21 years since Dean played!!
Ian Hi Great that you are making it to Paris! Nice one, I know of quite
a few people going from UK, we are quite excited about it! Sorry its
costing you so much! Our first singer, Pete, actually thought of the
name The Toy Dolls! See ya in Paris! Hope your kids enjoy it!
Hi Olga!! I'm a big fan and I've been downloading your guitar lessons,
they are great;) But I have a problem, the Wakey, Wakey lesson seems
to stop at 3rd minute and not go any further, is it just my computer
or is it someting wrong with the file. I didn't know where to ask this
question so I'm asking it here.
Adrian hi Thank you! I am hoping our webmaster
Ciaron, can answer this one! (Already on the case
Olga I'm a huge fan of the toy dolls. I first started listening to your music when my cousin gave me an old battered "one more megabyte" t-shirt. I fell in love with your music. And I can't believe I missed your show when you were in slovenia. I was out of the country and I actually missed your show. You HAVE to come back at least once. The beer's on me when you do ;) And to ask a question while I'm at it. Could you put a whole lesson of alec's gone on your video section? I know how to play the solo but I can't make out the chord progression by myself :P
Thank you! We had a really nice time
in Slovenia, sorry you missed it! We really wanna get back to do a club
show and play our full set, oh, and drink that free beer! I will check
on the Alecs Gone lesson! You will crack it eventually! Cheers
