Finally! Olga's acoustic album has a tentative release date! It's scheduled for release at the end of May 2015 but we'll naturally keep you posted with the precise date.
It will be available on CD and vinyl, but if you have any problem finding it in your local store it will be available directly from The Toy Dolls webshop.
Olga will be mixing and mastering the album in the studio in early February, although it was actually all recorded in Olga's bedroom! One guitar, one voice, no overdubs or harmonies whatsoever! You'll find some rather different versions of the songs too!
Here's the track listing:
Dig That Groove Baby
She’ll Be Back With Keith Someday
Barry the Roofer
Deidre’s A Slag
Olga I Cannot
You Wont Be Merry On A North Sea Ferry
My Wife’s A Psychopath
Alfie From The Bronx
Bitten By A Bed Bug
Thank you so much to 'Alko' for her brilliant painting being used for the cover!
