NewToys (Say It LP)

This is a repost by request from 5/25/11.
The Newtoys were a Buffalo, N.Y. four piece that formed in 1979, originally as The Toys. They released one single as The Toys in 1980. In 1982 the band changed their name to The NewToys, released this LP, and relocated Staten Island. They continued as The NewToys for a couple more years, before disbanding sometime around 1984.

Line Up-

Rocky Starr - Guitar, Vocals
Kevin Starr - Drums, Vocals
Meat Cleaver - Bass, Vocals
Mick Tyler - Guitar, Vocals

Mark / Playtime Records 1982

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.
