Album Review

Formerly known as F.Y.P, Toys That Kill is basically the same band with a couple new members and former drummer and bassist Sean Cole now playing guitar and singing on a few tunes. The music is tight, crunchy, and still mighty punk rock, sounding as good as practically any punk record released in 2001. "Little Bit Stranger" rocks furiously like an F.Y.P standard and has a dandy little solo, while the preceding bizarre radio transmissions of "Available 476-2061" are the kind of crazy, wack nonsense that these kids and their rubber cement sniffing fans find entertaining. "Keep Caroline" is the closest thing to some of the poppier material off F.Y.P's very excellent My Man Grumpy, but is about a minute long.

This may be one of the finest punk records of 2001, but that's only because it was a sorry year.

They include a new drummer, Denis Fleps, and new bassist Casey Ferrara, and Cole, who handled drums and bass with F.Y.P, now sings on a few songs and filters his schooled-on-Slayer-and-Napalm Death background into the occasional hesher-sounding guitar riffs. The songs were now...
