Stinky Toys – Stinky Toys. Label: Vogue – LD 8564. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. Stinky Toys second LP was unknown to me for many years, although I have owned their first LP almost since it first was released. This is not your average punk, and I doubt I would even call the music "punk" at all, except for maybe the sensibilities and the attitude. Elli Medeiros could not carry a tune in a five-gallon pail, but her voice does have a certain style that is suited to the odd musical stylings
Stinky Toys were a punk/new wave band formed in Paris, France in 1976. They are notable for their influence on the history of punk music, having directly inspired Malcolm McLaren. In the autumn of 1976 the band took part in the 100 Club Punk Special in London which showcased eight punk bands, most of which were unsigned.

Jan Colrth) (rhythm guitar), Bruno Carone (lead guitar), Albin Dériat (bass guitar), and Hervé Zénouda (drums). One of the first French new wave bands, in 1976 the band took part in the 100 Club Punk Festival in London, sharing the bill with such bands as Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Damned, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Buzzcocks.
Stinky Toys is a largely flat, bland collection of recycled Stones and New York Dolls riffs with low-quality vocals from Elli Medeiros. It is difficult to imagine anyone but the most fanatical UK punk completest seeking out this record.
Self-titled second album, Vogue 1979. They started out schlock, a first wave French punk rock group loved by Malcolm McLaren and Andy Warhol who somehow didn’t fit in with 1977. Their second album is something else - emotional, stylish, melancholic, especially the opening song, For You, which is a Katrina favourite. I’m sure they could have moved their operation to New York and been a Danceteria sensation but instead the main songwriters, Elli and Jacno started to make synth-based pop music that was both brilliant and bizarre.
