NewToys (Say It LP)

A while back I posted a single from Buffalo N.Y.'s The Toys. Some time around 1982, they changed their name to the Newtoys, released this classic LP, and relocated to Staten Island until they called it quits in 1984. You can check out their single HERE, along with more detailed information on the band. Unfortunately, the links I had on the post appear to be broken. I did find this PAGE on Kevin K though.

In February of 2010, Glorify The Turd posted the Say It album and not only does it not have any of the tracks you posted on it, it sounds like a completely different band.

Looks like New Toys reformed and put out a new record in 2012 called "Made in Buffalo."

On youtube, the band says they felt like"Say It" never really captured their sound.

If you have time to re-up, I'd love to give it a listen.

Thank you!

Thanks for the info, I'll have to check it out. I'll see what I can do, being that it's an entire LP, it might be a while though.

Well I went over to Glorify The Turd, and that link for "Say It" still worked. I don't know if it's the same as what you have.

It doesn't have quite the same sound as "Livin' Fast" and "I'm Telling You Now" from when the band was just The Toys. But bands can evolve, change their sound.

If you don't have time for it, that's fine. I'm enjoying checking out the rest of your blog.
