The Toy Dolls Come Home To Sunderland
To begin with, The Toy Dolls came back to Sunderland last night and it was about time. Indeed, they performed to a full house at North Shore, St Peters Campus.
In brief, The Toy Dolls played a gig in The Old 29 in Sunderland (1983), their home city. This was to be their last gig in the city for thirty years. But, last night, they rocked like it was that very same bash. All in all, it was as youthful as you can get from the ageing rockers. Just to point out, they never lost it!
On the whole, the lads have released more than fifty albums and singles. Another key point is, they are still big in Japan and South America where they regularly tour. All things considered, Olga and company have stuck true to what they know best. Another key point is that they never went commercialised in order to make more money. Significantly, they sing songs about home town of Sunderland too. With this in mind, we have people around the world with those songs on their minds. In contrast, it’s hard to find other people who are promoting Sunderland like these lads do!
A class act
Of course, we have to show one of their videos. So we chose one where they sing in Penshaw Monument, Sunderland. Obviously, they got wrong for this, but then again, they did a lot of daring stuff to say the least. This video is ‘Dig That Groove Baby’.
Finally, the Sunderland Forum and Blogs wish The Toy Dolls all the best. Indeed, maybe one day we will see them have their own gig at the Stadium of Light. Of course, that would that be a spectacle!
