TOY DOLLS: Wakey Wakey: CD

Jul 28, 2009

A reissue of the Dolls’ sixth studio album, this is a vast improvement over the previous debacle, Bare Faced Cheek. Out of favor on this bad boy is unmemorable, uninspired songwriting and back in vogue are instant classics like “Cloughy Is a Bootboy” and first-rate covers of ”No Particular Place to Go” and the classical staple “Sabre Dance.” Add to that a tight as hell performance and Olga’s surgeon-precision punk guitar pyrotechnics and what more could one ask for? Recommended.
