Idle Gossip = 2 LP = (LP)
Punks most talented guitarist, Olga Algar regaled us with this 3rd Toy Dolls full length studio effort in 1986. The revolving door of drummers and bassists never seemed to affect the quality of Toy Dolls' releases, and this CD is no exception. My personal favorite, Idle Gossip has tougher production than anything TD had completed at this point. The songs were also harder and even more packed with the giant Oi! choruses that help characterize the unique sound of this band. As always, Olga's singing sounds like he's been sucking on helium. Of course, that's a large part of his charm. Not to mention, his guitar playing had become even faster and the solos (and riffs) had become even more amazing than on the 2 preceding full lengths. The title track opens the CD full throttle, sounding like the band is being played on 45 rpm and sets the tone for this fast, fast, fast release with only a couple breathers, "Geordie's Gone To Jail" and "I Tried To Trust Tracy" (notably the weakest tracks on the whole thing). Every song is a classic singalong here with the huge group chants and the almost "row, row, row your boat" style of choruses.
