New Toy Love video
Read today's great indepth piece in the NZH by Scott Kara, talking to the band and various associates...The Toy Love affair.
Some blurb on the vid: " Tonight at the NZ Music awards Toy Love receive the NZ Herald Legacy award. They recently received a video grant to make a video for Swimming Pool. The first video for a Toy Love song in 32 years.
It was directed by Jeff Smith, bass player from The Newmatics. Jeff & The Newmatics opened for Toy Love at the Gluepot in September 1980 , a week before their last show. Jeff had to wear a wet suit, and don goggles and snorkel to make this clip. The kids in the video went at it with unbridled enthusiasm. The members of Toy Love love it.
Swimming Pool was written in The Enemy days. The Enemy even recorded a demo of it in late 1978. It was demoed in 1979 by Toy Love, and appeared on the 1980 self titled album. The Swimming Pool single will be available free at Real Groovy Records, 438 Queen Street, this Saturday. It will only be on a 7 inch single b/w Gagarin by Knoxious - a collaboration between a certain member of Toy Love and Rackets.
The single is only available if you purchase a copy of the Toy Love double LP, which will be on split coloured vinyl and only available from Real Groovy. It is limited to 300 copies. Toy Love will be in store from 11am.
There a lots of other Toy Love surprises as well - see link below.
