The Toys (Livin' Fast Single)

This is a repost by request; originally posted 6/7/10.
   Formed in 1979 by brothers Alan, and Kevin Kalicki, (Rocky Starr and Kevin Rat), from the ashes of their previous band Aunt Helen,(who released one single titled "Big Money / Rebecca in 1978). The Toys became one of the premiere live bands of Buffalo N.Y.'S Punk movement. This single, and a track on a compilation that's unknown to me were their only releases. In 1982, they changed their name to the New Toys, picked up a new Bass player, and relocated Staten Island, before disbanding in 1984. Sadly, Alan Kalicki passed away In 1996, he was 41 years old.


Line Up -

Meat Cleaver - Bass
Kevin Rat - Drums
Rocky Starr - Guitar
Mick Tyler - Guitar

Maxwell Music 1980

1. Livin' Fast
2. I'm Telling You Now
