The Toy Dolls are a British punk rock band. They formed in 1979, playing their first ever gig at Millview Social Club, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, UK, on 20 October 1979. After a couple of gigs, vocalist Pete Zulu left to form his own band. He was replaced by Paul "Hud" Hudson, who himself left after a single gig, leaving Toy Dolls as a trio with guitarist Michael "Olga" Algar to assume vocal duties. This was just the start of the revolving door of drummers and bassists that would characterize the Toy Dolls line-up over the years.
Billy No Mates is the solo project from Snuff drummer and lead singer Duncan Redmonds. When playing Live, Billy No Mates consists of two Bands;
Billy No Mates East - touring Japan, and Billy No Mates West - touring Europe. Three albums have been released; The Japanese Tour EP, We are legion and C'monletmeseeyoupogo. On the first release, We Are Legion, the entire album was recorded just by Duncan. For C'monletmeseeyoupogo, the album was recorded by Billy No Mates east.
