New Zealand Artist: Toy Love
Toy Love were a New Zealand new wave band that grew out of the country's first punk band, The Enemy. And while their small number of recordings were pretty much by-the-numbers new wave pop with a few moments of inspiration, Toy Love (and especially their founding member Chris Knox) proved to be an important starting point for New Zealand's alternative rock scene of the '80s.
The Enemy was formed in 1977 in Dunedin by singer/songwriter Chris Knox (who also attempted bass for a short time), guitarist Alec Bathgate, drummer Mike Dooley, and guitarist Chris Pendergast. Pendergast was replaced shortly by a friend and former collaborator of Knox's, Mick Dawson.
Cuts debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Albums on 2 May 2005. It has been in the Top 40 Albums for three weeks with a highest position of #23. There are three albums by Toy Love in the Top 40 Albums.
