The Toy Dolls are celebrating their 36th year in 2016!
The follow up to the last release, “THE ALBUM AFTER THE LAST ONE” (Secret Records Limited), is being written as we speak!
This will be studio album thirteen, writing and recording will be finished in between a string of club gigs and 36th year anniversary festivals throughout 2016!
So… 2016 will be a LIVE SHOW year!
In a nutshell, the band began in Sunderland, North East UK in October 1979.
After quickly building up a strong local following they were offered a support slot on two UK tours with the Angelic Upstarts which won the band highly favourable press reviews and garnered them a national following.
Following the bands early tours with the Upstarts they began embarking on their own UK tours, then moving on to Europe and the rest of the world.
Throughout the past 36 years The Toy Dolls have built up one of the strongest, most loyal, fan bases known to a punk band on this level.
The bands first album “DIG THAT GROOVE BABY” (recorded in 1983) is recognized as one of the best punk albums of all time, along with their seventh album of 1993, “ABSURD DITTIES”.
Including live albums and compilations The Toy Dolls have released over 50 CDs! 2015 also saw the release of “OLGACOUSTIC”, Olga’s solo acoustic album.
But this is no ordinary punk band! With song titles like “Dig That Groove Baby”, “Cloughy Is A Bootboy” and “My Girlfriends Dad’s A Vicar”, a stage show packed with synchronized jumps and dances, choreography, spinning guitars, and highly addictive melodies, this is escapism at its best!
