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." You get the picture. If all this doesn't do it for you, then the band's 100-mph cover of "Blue Suede Shoes" certainly will.

Badly digitized album

Top half of the song names are shifted one name down. The first song is actually Tommy Cowey's Car and so on. There is NO Dig That Groove Theme up top among the songs. Really poor job creating this album, digitizer bum.

Good But Wrong

Toy Dolls are great but things are really wrong w/ this album. Tracks are fine just titled wrong and some tracks listed on original album aren't there. But music quality is good... Just wierd for itunes to release such a mysteriously wrong album.

Long-lived punk outfit Toy Dolls formed in Sunderland, England, in October of 1979, originally comprising singer Pete Zulu (born Peter Robson), guitarist Olga (Michael Algar), bassist Flip (Philip Dugdale), and drummer Mr. Colin Scott. Within a month, and after just a handful of gigs, Zulu left the group, the first in a seemingly endless number of lineup changes to follow in the coming years; with new frontman Hud lasting just one live date, Olga agreed to assume vocal duties, and the remaining Toy...
