Cuddly Toys - Guillotine Theatre (DVD/CD)
Release Date: 10/30/07
The 1977 shock-outrage punk band 'RAPED' always knew they weren't going to get far with a name like that. So in 1979 they changed their hard name to the softest they could think of - CUDDLY TOYS. The move coincided with them exploring their o.t.t. glam-rock fantasies to the full. Finding a bootleg tape of Bowie & Bolan rehearsing an unfinished song, 'Madman' they made it their own. Regularly gigging around the UK, the album was released in 1979 but only in Japan, an expensive import until a revamped UK version was eventually issued in 1981. The band went on to a second album 'Trials & Crosses' with a new line-up in 1982. Singer Sean Purcell died in 1996.
