    Great record. Red Bus really dicked them about. They also did a private single, called “Ba Ba Badup”, which never really gets much attention, unfortunately. One of the band now organises things like whenever some old act like Simon & Garfunkel are pulling a million-and-a-half people in Central Park. The band’s main man’s mum can’t reach the top shelf in the house where the ‘spare’ singles are. Got a ladder?

    Ladder? No only a full bladder. Got to pee. See ya!

    Go to the Police is a great song, Breakdown is okay, but I dont’d think it’s as good as go to the police. Over all it’s a pretty good single.

    “Go to the police” is fantastic – if somebody doesn´t sing along to this tune, he must be deaf! A perfect mix between Punk and Powerpop…

    This brought back memories! I was one of The Toys (bass/harmony vocals). In hindsight we should’ve called ourselves The Bath Toys since that was our home town in those days.

    This is a great record. My copy was found in 1984 on a council tip in Gloucester along with a copy of AD 1984s “The Russians Are Coming” – top landfill punk finds!! What are yours? Kylie Minogue? Losers.
