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. They continued as The New Toys for a couple more years, before disbanding in 1984. There's more detailed info on the Toy's, and post Toy's, you can read about on 13th Street Entertainment's website. There's a cd available from them as well, you can find HERE . In 1996, Alan Kalicki passed away, he was 41 years old.
