Good fucking punk/glam/new wave band from Ireland here. This is a pretty strange record and I'm not all together sure how to describe it, but I like it. Formed originally in 77 as RAPED, the CUDDLY TOYS started out just trying to piss people off and they did, I mean with a name like RAPED it couldn't have been that hard right? The Pretty Paedophiles EP, must have helped out a bit also. But eventually against all odds and after a name change they got somewhere and were up to be managed by the one and only Marc Bolan, but sadly he died before this could happen. Leaving the CUDDLY TOYS in nowheresville. This is a pretty strong piece of wax and not all the songs appeal to me, but I give it to these guys for sheer originality. When this record hits it hits pretty hard, but the bad places can be a real thorn at times, but hey that's why we can skip forward on the old CD player right? I really like This cover, it has got to be one of the weirder ones I have seen and does nothing to describe the music it contains, or maybe it does, Ha Ha. Check it out and let me know what you think. 70's Glam fans take note. Great stuff!

  1. Wow! I was just listening to this thinking I needed to post my Raped LP, then I went and read your post and read the Raped connection. Totally Raped meet Gary Numan!

  2. Thanks for posting this. It's interesting listening to this version of Guillotine Theatre. I had a tape of the 1978 Japanese import and not only is the track listing completely different but also the audio mix - Introvenus and Brain Saviour sound completely different and Universe which is the very last track has an extra outro of the 1812 overture.
