Hi, Olga, great news to hear you guys are coming back to Porto Alegre, Brazil!!! As an old time listener (21 years since I found my first Toy Dolls LP in a dumpster, no cover and a lot of scratches... Huge fan ever since!!!!) I am very pleased to know I will finally get to hear you!!! Last time you´ve been here in Porto Alegre, I had my ticket to the concert... got stucked in an emergency and just made it to the club a few moments before the show starts... But, unfortunelly, some guys from a punk gang tryed to break in to the show, they were in line in front of me and had no tickets, so the club was closed, nobody else got in... had the ticket in my hands and had to stay out of the club, cursing the security people... Anyway, I would like to know how if you guys had time, due to the tight tour schedule, to hang out in the cities you go, visit some clubs, interact with the local people... Let me know if you usually do that, and I will ask you guys for a beer here in Porto Alegre (my treat!!!! Just hope you guys don´t drink too much... ehehehehheheeheh) Anyway, nice talking to you, and can´t wait till september!!! Hopefully, no surprises this time, and I will finally see you alive!!! Ed Silva - Porto Alegre, Brazil
Ed! Thank you! Its been a while since we played Porto Algre, really
looking forward to seeing you lot again! Unfotunately the Schedule is
extra tight this time around, 4 shows in 4 days and long travels! So
its just gonna be sound checks and gigs! Cheers!
Greetings Olga My Guitar playing nephew has fallen in love with the Toy Dolls especially the clip on youtube Duelling Banjos, so much so, that i have had to buy him a Banjo. He now wants the same sunglasses and i cannot find them anywhere. Please help, where can i get the sunglasses. Cheers Neil
Hi Those sunglasses came from a store called “Poundstrecther”
in the UK, not sure they still have them in stock anymore now though,
I don’t think they were big sellers!
One of my friends showed me Nellie The Elephant and I instantly fell in love with your music. I went out and bought the "dig that groove baby" and "our last album?". the toy dolls are now one of my favorite bands, definitely my favorite punk band by far. I live in the Seattle, Washington area, there's a place called The Showbox that would be perfect for you guys. thanks for all the great music you've made, Dylan Creed
Dylan, I am pleased you like the albums! I will take note of The Showbox
venue too, hopefully Seattle will be included in our next trip there!
hi i was wondering when the new album is out please and if you will ever be touring england again? As the manchester accademy 3 concert in 2007 was my best ever concert iv been to. Paul
Hi Good question, album will be sometime in 2011, I know that's a bit
vague, just been so busy with festivals and shows at the moment! I am
really pleased you enjoyed the Manchester gig, it was a nice one! I
guess we will be back in the UK eventually!
Hi, my name are victor, and I am a big fan of you olga! I was very happy when I learned that the band was playing in Brazil! because I did not know the band before and I had already lost one of its shows in Brazil, I hope to go some day to Europe, and if I can go in your house to say hi, and give a souvenir of my city here for you and talk a little bit, who knows ^ ^,I hope the show is a success ^ ^,have you ever tried to speak Portuguese? because if you want I can teach you ^ ^,thanks for attention
Hey! Thank you! I really wish I could speak Portuguese, maybe one day!
Hope to see you later this month in Brazil!
Hi Olga, Are you going to gig again? Thanks for your time.
there! Yes, we are gigging all the time! Not quite sure which country
you are referring to though!
Dear Mr. Olga, I' ll be at sziget festival and I just can' t wait for your performance! Anyway, my question is: would you like to adopt me? I can do everything you need like cook, feed the fishes, launder and also brush your teeths and wash your feets. I wish I could just have the honour to say "I' m the most awesome man' s daughter"! Take care! Laura P.S: Oh and I' m italian so just think about all that good pizza and spaghetti you would eat...Let me know! Haha! Cheers!
Laura I hope you enjoyed Sziget!? I will certainly consider the adoption!
I am thinking of the pizza!
Hello, it' s Laura again. Sorry for sending more e-mails but I totally forgot to ask you where can I find the "Turtle crazy" tabs 'cause I' m working on a remake : "Toy dolls crazy" and it would be so much fun to play and sing eheh! So if you can help me I would really really appreciate! Thank you again and sorry for wasting your time! Hope in your answer! Cheeeeeeeers superolgaman! Laura
Laura again! I really haven’t seen Turtle Crazy around for a long
time, I am sure you can find it somewhere on the internet! I wouldn't
want it! Ha!
Hi Olga! I'm Erik from Treviso. i've watched lots of your videos and i've noticed that you never use the alternate picking! how can you do it and why? you're great :D see ya!
Eric how are you, All downstrokes are hard work, but sounds so much
better because each note is almost identical, not easy though!
I m Borys , Polish fan of Toy Dolls. Actually living in Luxembourg.
Its been long time I have not heard about your band and just by coincident
I saw some youtube video , then google search shows me your website.
Of course first thing - tour dates ! Wow - you still perform!! Cool
- then I see that most of the gigs are fests that you are one of many
bands but in Russia it seems that you will be main guest :) I would
love to see you overthere, I start to plan my trip to fly to Moscow
where you have gig on Sept 10th. I see that you have day after ( Sept
11th ) another event in St Petersburg. I would be happy to visit both
of them. So now my question , how do you get from Moscow to St Peter
? By train , by plane ? I would like to join you guys , if you dont
mind of course ;)
Borys I hope you are enjoying Luxembourg. Yep, still performing! I am
not sure how the promotion team are getting us from Moscow to St Petersburg
to be honest, I guess we will find out when we arrive in Russia! Hope
to see you there!
Hey Olga! I'm not sure if I can ask this to you, but what the hell... i'll just try it anyway! :) Me and the guys from our band are totally into toy dolls. Since I can't find tabs from the song "i've got asthma", i was wondering if I could ask them (guitar and bass-lines) to you, since we really really want to play this song! If you would find time it would be great for you to answer this one! If not, I'll see you guys in Belgium on Pukkelpop. :) Rock on! Thanks a lot man! Cheers! Pieter Hex from Belgium
Hello Thank you! We don't have any tabs here unfortunately, but I believe
I saw The Asthma tabs somewhere on the internet, let me know if you
find them! And, I hope you enjoyed Pukkelpop!
Heeey man!! My name is Adenes Schwantz, i'm brazilian and i am a hudge fan of Toy dolls!!! Thanks god you guys are coming back to Brazil!! I knew the band when you've been here at 2006, i saw you in TV show "Gordo Freak Show" at MTV's, from there i never stopped following the band, and now you'll be at Porto Alegre, just 300 Miles from my home! Well, a just want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH, september 23, the best night ever are coming, and please include "Spiders in the dressing room" on setlist!! See you!! Adenes Schwantz

Ciao alejandro
Alejandro Thank you! Hope to see you there too!
Hi Olga Hope you are keeping well and progress on the new album is going good. I was lucky enough to get the chance to see the band (1st time) in Birmingham in 2007 on the last UK tour and the show certainly lived up to expectation!! I know the band is very fond of the summer festival scene and was wondering why you’ve never played probably the biggest of them all, Rebellion in Blackpool? I was there 2 years ago and it was amazing and I’m sure you’d have a great fan base there as I say may people with Toy Dolls T-Shirts….myself included!!!! Regards Donal McCarron
Hey Album is coming along thank you! Yeah, we really enjoyed the Birmingham
show, we may get around to playing Rebellion someday, just timing etc.
See ya next time around!
Hi Olga! My name is Lucio. I´m from Argentina. I´m sorry if my english is not very good :P I had the plasure of hear the band for the first time in summer of 2007 at one tv show called "peter capusoto y sus videos" they show the video of "dig that groove baby!" since then i´ve become a fan! and since then i´ve been waiting for you to come back to argentina. oh men I was so happy when i hear the news, that i´ve the tickets since march 19! I wanna know what day will you arrive to ezeiza airport and what time so can be there to recive you men! when you know these details i apriciate if you wanna tell me! I will be waiting!! You guys are an inspiration to me!!!
Hello Your English is fine! Do not worry! Nice to know you have become
a fan too! I don't have flight details yet unfortunately, I guess we
will be coming in on the morning of 26th from Sao Paulo.
Hi Olga! First I'll let you know that I don't want to ask anything (though it's the ask Olga section), so it's more like a regular e-mail, but I'll just tell you some things if you dont mind. :) What I want to tell you is that I've never been involved to punk music, never listened to the genre itself, I have nothing to do with it, but one of my friends showed Toy Dolls to me about 4 years ago (I'm 20 years old now), and from that moment I became a fan! I also was surprised that a punk band can touch me this much, but it happened! So from that time, I'm a pretty active Toy Dolls listener who knows (almost) every single song of yours and stuff. Then in May 2007 you did a gig here in Budapest, Hungary (in the open-air club Zöld Pardon), and when I've been told that y'all will play here, I was totally geeked about it! The concert was a huge blast for me, and after that I looked forward if you came here again in the near future, but you unfortunately didn't. Then I found out that you'd play in Sziget Festival this summer, so I felt like even if I couldn't afford it, I just have to be there! So somehow I made it, and it was even a bigger buzz to see you again! I enjoyed it A LOT! So I'm not a punk or anything, I'm mostly into other kind of music, but I can feel the music that you've been doing for 31 years now, and I'm thankful for it. I really hope that I can see you in Hungary as soon as possible, at your earliest convenience again, plus I really hope that I'll be able to shake hands and pass the time of day with you Olga, even if it's a couple minutes! So I wish you all the best and keep doing what you're doing! And I can't wait for the next album. :) Cheers and greetings: Dániel from Hungary
you for that Dániel! Its good to know you enjoyed the shows.
We really look forward to getting back to Hungary to a proper Toy dolls
club show ASAP! Hope to see you there. Thanks again for your message!
Hey Olga, I can't say im a long standing fan as im only 17 and my dad just recently introduced me to ur music, but i was wandering, what amp settings do you use? as im currently trying to learn basically all of your songs and im especially fond of the intro of ''pot bell bill'', the pinch hars are perfect! oh, im from stanley just outside of sunderland/ newcastle, you may know the place. a very sinceer thankyou for your time :) Alex
Alex 17, wow! only 4 younger than me! Thanks for the compliments! I
know Stanley! Its been a while since I was up there mind ya, greetings
to everyone! My amp is a Marshall JCM 800 100 w 2203 Settings vary from
gig to gig,and amp to amp, but generally Presence is 6, Treble 5, Middle
3, Bass 3, First volume 2, Second volume 8. Any help?
Hi! I ask Olga by this e-mail about month ago, if he will sign my guitar body and he say "yes". I will be at Toy Dolls gig in Czech Republic (20 August 2010) and I want to remind you about that ;] Is there chance to go backstage after gig to do that? Chris
Chris Yes of course, but I didn't see you! Hope you enjoyed the show?
Hi everyone! I'd like to thank you Olga for signing my two Toy Dolls albums (we met after gig by the fence behind the stage. I was wearing Toy Dolls t-shirt. I hope you remember :) I take my guitar to sign too but the security don't want to let me on the backstage. You should play more at eastern Europe. We've got nice club in Lodz (central Poland) called "Dekompresja". Many punk rock bands play there, like Anti-Nowhere League, The Exploited, oh and The Adicts play there at 22th August. By the way; The gig was AWESOME! :)
No problem! So sorry you couldn't get your guitar signed, that's a shame.
I have took note of the Dekompresia club, thank you, I will let our
