THE TOY DOLLS (U.K.)
40th anniversary tour

The Toy Dolls are coming over to Pitfest V as part of their 40th anniversary tour!

Slated by the British music press for being a joke ‘one hit wonder’ band and being on par with The Tweets, The Grumbleweeds, The Barron Knights and The Wurzels, here they are after 40 years, 13 studio albums, dozens of ‘best of’ albums, live albums, box sets and, more importantly, the 40 years of constant worldwide live tours, shows and festivals, playing to packed houses from Buenos Aires to Budapest.

The band’s main man, lead singer / guitarist and songwriter Michael ‘Olga’ Algar (recognized throughout the world as one of the best punk guitar players around by fans a musicians alike) states his influences as Mick Green (The Pirates), Wilko Johnson and Chuck Berry, alongside The Jam, The Sweet and Slade.

Olga has guested on numerous artist’s albums, written and produced songs for bands, TV shows and TV ads, and The Toy Dolls have had their music used in films, Play Station games, and incidental TV music throughout the world.

The Toy Dolls continue to release new studio albums and play to sold out live shows throughout the world to the best, and most loyal, bunch of fans a band could hope for.

With a stage show packed with synchronized jumps and dances, choreography, spinning guitars, and highly addictive melodies, this is escapism at its best!

OFFICIAL QUOTE:
“Olga is a guitar virtuoso, I’m not fucking kidding. We did a show with The Toy Dolls in France over the past summer and they’re still world-class punk rock. I’ve been a fan of these guys for almost 30 years”

– Tim Armstrong, Rancid
