Toy­death from Syd­ney, found­ed in 1995, pro­duce their mixed and pulpy elec­tron­ic music exclu­sive­ly from gen­er­at­ed sounds of tor­tured toys. By reusing elec­tron­ic toys and cre­at­ing ener­getic explo­sions of a rock’n’roll chaos this Aus­tralian trio knows that you don’t have to play by the rules to have fun. Using their noisy util­i­ties they extract ele­ments of sounds which are used by kids to ter­ror­ize their par­ents. These 8 bit instru­ments pro­vide those forms of brassy dis­tor­tions and inter­fer­ences for which bands like Nine Inch Nails or Mar­i­lyn Man­son would sell their souls. Over­all that sounds some­how like Sigue Sigue Sput­nik on Tamagotchi.

Beside that Toy­death loves to per­form as chang­ing toy char­ac­ters in col­or­ful cos­tumes, e. g. as GiJoe, L’Boo­by, Nursey or invul­ner­a­ble Bar­bie. Let’s fuck around.
