Hello Olga, Many years ago I have seen you in Sneek at "Het Bolwerk" and I asked you to sign my t-shirt. You did so and I was a very very happy girl, nothing would make that feeling go away... Well, the next day my mom came at my room and threw the shirt away. How,... how...?? I hope I get to see and speak to you again on a concert and ask if you can sign my t-shirt again. So I can be that happy girl again =) Love, Peace and Joy, Ann-Lisa
Hi Sorry to hear your mom threw the shirt away! Maybe she was wiser
than you think! I like the Bolwerk in Sneek, rockin’ little venue,
I hope it will be included in the Dutch gigs this year! And YES of course
I will sign your shirt again, make sure you hide it from yer mom next
Hey Olga, Just a quick message from the miserable town of Grimsby. I've been a massive fan of your music for a few years now after hearing Nellie on the jukebox at our favourite drinking spot, and making a scene singing it god knows how many times. It's been rubbing off on my friends too, so we've got a bit of a Toy Dolls contingent going on up here! Only problem is, since they put a new jukebox in, they haven't got a single bit of Dolls on it, and we really miss it... would you be so kind as to ask the jukebox at The Barge to get some Toy Dolls on? If you do, I'll print it off and show it, then it might listen! Cheers! Kirkio, Grimsby
Kirkio, I don’t think it would do much good! I have heard of bands
trying this kinda thing in the past! You should get a petition going
and pass it on to landlord. Best o’ luck, and cheers for your
Hi there Olga, I'm an 'old' (42 years) Dutch Toy Dolls fan. Saw many of your shows in the early 90-ies in Amsterdam, Berlin and other places in Europe. Now I live in Sardinia, Italy and saw on YouTube you guys were here in August 2010 (in Villasor) and I missed it. Any chance of coming here again? There aren't too many good shows here and I need to get my old Doc's dusted of again! Thanks for the reply. Cheers, Guido
is very nice Guido, I hope you enjoy it there. Not sure when we will
be back there, but we had a lovely time in Villasor. I think we may
be in the Netherlands in the Autumn, but I guess that's not much good
I was just wondering what kind of music you listen to, maybe you could tell us some of your favourite bands? Thanks for your awesome music, always puts me in a good mood!
like silence most of the time! Though I do occasionally listen to Ella
Fitzgerald and Chet Baker.
Hey Olga! I’ m Lalla, from Italy! And I have to thank you
because your music always cheers me up! There’s no way I could
express what I actually feel when I’m listening to the toy dolls!
It’ s the most happy and amazing feeling in the world! It might
sound kinda hippy but I’d hug you guys if I only could! hahaha!
So a big big big thank you! Ok now, I wanted to know something... What
is the problem with “turtle crazy”? I really like that song
and don’ t understand why it’s so embarrassing to you! Two
years ago you performed at sziget festival and I was there! In the first
line of course! I am the girl that gave you those weird glasses(hope
you liked it!) and I wanted to thank you (again) for your kindness!
It’s pretty rare nowadays! We took a picture and I tried to send
it to the website but it hasn’ t been uploaded yet. Is the “fan
gallery” closed or something? Are you going to play in Italy,
Austria or Slovenia this year? Or maybe at sziget festival again?I hope
so...I NEED a toy dolls gig! And last question, I want to get a toy
dolls tattoo but I don’ t know what to do...any suggestion? I
can’ t decide!!! hahaha! Thanks a lot! And sorry for the silly
questions! Oh and “credit crunch christmas” is amazing!
You never disappoint me!waiting for the whole album!!
Lalla, Thank you! Its nice when someone says your music makes them so
happy! Yeah, lets not talk about the awful Turtle Crazy! Ciaron told
me that he is in the process of sorting the fan gallery and tattoo section,
soon I hope! Hopefully Austria will be later in the year, gigs are being
planned as we speak!
Marek Yes, overworked! Especially answering all these questions! Joke!
Thank you! Nice to have been a musical influence! Thank you for spreading
the word! The Polish beer sounds mighty tempting at this moment!
Hey Olga & Toy Dolls!!! I'm Patrick called "Das Phantom
der Träume" My Band IRON SNAG JOE is from Austria and we play
Punkrock (german speaking, fun, horror, rock, punk, musical, theater)
We love Toy Dolls, you are great. More than great.
Patrick Best of luck with IRON SNAG JOE! I will check out your website.
Hopefully Austria will be in the Autumn!
Hey Olga! I saw you guys here in California in '82 or '83 at the Concert Factory (formerly the Cookoo's Nest) in Costa Mesa; I heard that you guys might tour the "States" in 2012? I am glad you guys are true to your sound...kinda like the UK Subs and the Buzzcocks. More so, I always liked the fact the Toy Dolls dispelled the stigma of the Oi sound and/or movement. Big Fan, Anthony
Anthony I love the Subs and The Buzzcocks! So thank you! No USA shows
planned at the moment, but keep checking those tour dates!
Dear Olga, grown up in the 80s in East Germany I fondly remember the Toy Dolls song "Nellie the Elephant". What a great piece of music =)! Now it happened that a few days back for Xmas, four tiny artfully hand painted elephants from India showed up at our house. Together with your song they inspired me to make a "stop motion" movie which I just uploaded on YouTube and can be seen here (at least in the US and using a computer but not a mobile device): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8S4n656ICk I assure you, I'm not planning to make any money from this video but hope you and many other folks get some fun out of it. May I kindly ask your permission to continue to use this song for the video? If you have a look yourself, it just seems to be a perfect match. Thanks Frank
Hi Nellie the Elephant? Never heard of it! Ha, no problem with the music
Hi Olga, my name is Roger. I have 30 years. I am a great lover of THE TOY DOLLS, I have a punk rock band with a lot of influence because of you. I am very happy because you are in Spain in May. My hope is simply that you receive my CD of my band, doing a cover of Nelly Elephant. And if you do a certain photo of the CD would be a dream for us. Give me an address where you can send the cd? You add the song cover of NELLY!!!!!!! Thank you Olga! Long live TOY DOLLS !!!!!!!!
there Roger, It would be great to hear your cover, you can just send
it to this website: Address: Ciaron?
HI When you play in Brazil again? I saw you in 1988, 2006 and 2010, when you want to go here? Happy new years....... Best Regards Luiz
Luiz hi Wow, you saw all those tours! I am impressed! Maybe we will be back in 2014 ish! Happy new Year to you too! Olga
Hi Olga, My name is Daniel, Im 17 and a massive fan of The Toy Dolls,
I first got into you after hearing the mighty ‘Dig That Groove
Baby’ on Tony Hawks 4. I got a couple of your greatest hits when
I was a kid, I adored it and im now building up my album collection
By buying your albums when I can afford to J Im writing this from school
while listening to Fat Bobs feet which I got yesterday J I was thinking
and I wondered, whats your favourite Toy Dolls song?
Hi, Thank you! My favourite album is Absurd ditties, and probably my
favourite song is Decca’s Drinkin’ Dilemma, off the new
album. “The Album After The Last one”. Not many people have
mentioned What she had with Huey! Thank you for that! I quite like that
one also! Enjoy Fat Bobs Feet!
Hey there, Olga! I'm a huge fan, and my awesome family got me Dig That Groove Baby on vinyl for my 16th birthday this year! I hate to be another annoying fan girl pestering for autographs and such, but I was wondering if it would be possible to get my album signed? If not, I completely understand, but thought I'd ask. Also, hoping you'll play here in the US in the future! Or maybe I can hitchhike to Spain? Endless possibilities. Hope you all nothing but the best for the new year. xoxo Katie Rose
Hey I am glad to hear you like Dig that Groove baby! It's a special
one for me, being our first album! Certainly I will sign it, Ciaron,
our webmaster will advise you where to send it. He will make sure I
