Toy Love - Musical Chairs

Toy Love burnt brightly but briefly, cramming a career's-worth of work and rock'n'roll adventure into just eighteen months of 1978-80. Musically 'Toy Love' was a collective, each band member adding to the sometimes chaotic, often improvised sound, without obscuring the fact that these were genuine pop songs. Over time it has become acknowledged as one of New Zealand's seminal bands. For Radio New Zealand's local music profile series Musical Chairs Rex Nairn covers the story of Toy Love. (produced 2005)
