Album Remarks & Appraisals:
2007 reissue of the manic and merry Punk pranksters' album from 1992 complete with four additional bonus tracks! Features great Toy tunes including 'James Bond Lives Down Our Street', 'Silly Billy' and many more. Captain Oi.
Toy Dolls include: Michael "Olga" Algar (vocals, guitar).
Recorded at Fairview Studios, Hull, England in July 1986.
With their continued trademark sound of hyperactive, wacky punk that hasn't changed one bit since the Toy Dolls started out, Idle Gossip not only maintains the tradition of having a playful attitude, but it also never fails to get old no matter how many albums they put out. The wackiness and energy are still there with Olga's helium-fueled vocals and the 78-rpm speed. It's always great to see a band like the Toy Dolls maintain their offbeat sense of humor, and with nursery rhyme song titles like "Silly Billy," "You Won't Be Merry on the North Ferry" and "I'll Get Even with Steven," this record provides the ultimate alternative to anti-depressive medication. ~ Mike DaRonco
