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.
