Album Review

The Toy Dolls are all about fun, and their long-awaited full-length debut, 1982's Dig That Groove Baby, is an absolute punk gem. Bandleader Olga (aka Michael Algar) is capable of jaw-droppingly fast guitar picking, while lending his purposefully effeminate voice to numerous silly characters. Besides containing the definitive version of their classic "Nellie the Elephant," the album finds Olga tackling other comedic ditties such as "Spiders in the Dressing Room," "Glenda and the Test Tube Baby," and the long-winded "Queen Alexandra Road Is Where She Said She'd Be, But Was She There to Meet Me...No Chance."

[The 2003 re-release contains extensive liner notes and four bonus tracks, including the melodic singalong "Alfie from the Bronx" and the ridiculous party starter "Hanky Panky."]
