Greetings from Toy Doll world!
First things first, check out the latest live dates here.
They're coming in thick and fast all the time so please do keep checking
OK, a slightly different kind of update for you this time!
While we are waiting for album and gigs news, I decided to do a big interview
with the man himself, Olga.
There's some burning questions over the 30 years that I and a number of
others wanna have the answers to!
So here we go with the 30th
And your Olga Talkin’
and Ask Olga sections both updated.
And… another guitar
lesson for ya all!
I know a lot of you have been asking about The Toy Dolls music/chords
book, well, let me know what you think of this, its just a kind of taster
for what may happen if we get enough interest, courtesy of Christophe
Saunière, the score for SHE
GOES TO FINOS (pdf download).
Requests for The Toy Dolls back catalogue releases is on going, so heres
a direct link to Captain
Oi!, they have a load of the bands stuff, check it out.
And now for something completely different!
On Friday February 12th from 5pm (UK TIME) till 5pm on Saturday (24 hours
ONLY), Olga will be putting up 2 new album “In me Bedroom”
demo tracks for ya to hear.
Yep, you heard that right! I have asked a reluctant Olga to put up two
of his rough demos up for us!
Olga has asked me to stress though that the demos are played in his bedroom,
on a drum machine, with the guitar (sounding fuzzy being played through
his trusty Tube Screamer) being plugged into the recording equipment directly
without an amp, and with Olga doing all the playing and all backing vocals,
so please don’t judge the sound, this aint what its gonna sound
like when its recorded properly!
Anyway, the rough tracks will be on Olgas MYSPACE
page on Friday 12th Feb 5pm for 24 hours only! ENJOY!!
Oh, and don't forget to add your support to the "Get Fender to honour
Olga with a signature Telecaster" campaign. Check out all the details
on the specially prepared MySpace
More news soon
