The CD comes in a cardboard CD folder with a fold-out lyric sheet which has some great photos of the band on it. Very 70s and another reason to buy the disc and not the digital download version.
Musically Stinky Toys are typiquemnet francais. They were at the vangiuard of French Punk and make a fine counterpoint to the contemporary English punk music. The music has a suppressed energy which hints at french intellectualism and sneers at the conventional music of the time. The music would be nothing without Eli Medeiros who puts just effort into the singing to make you wonder what else her voice can achieve. I like the shock value, the energy, tone and sheer frenchness of this album. French punk should have ruled the world with Eli as queen but we'll have to remember that time now. This is a great re-release and maybe a few people will hear it for the first time and discover a very different style.
The Stinky Toys 1977 debut should have been on CD a LOT earlier than today! I even pestered Captain Oi to put this one out (they just said they's consider it). Imagine a "faster" version of Jagger n Company's first albums with crude-but-sincere
female vocals. I have a feeling this CD won't be availible too long- grab it now!
