Toy Love (Chris Knox/Flying Nun) reissue long-lost live LP this month on Goner

Memphis garage/punk label Goner Records is releasing a long-lost live album from influential, if shamefully short lived, New Zealand band Toy Love. The Chris Knox-led band put out one full-length before dissolving, leading Knox and guitarist Alec Bathgate to form the (amazing) Tall Dwarfs.

The album, titled Live at Gluepoint 1980 and released on CD/2xLP, contains the complete set from one of their last shows at the Gluepoint in Ponsonby, Auckland, NZ. It’s mastered from an original desk tape recorded by the band’s soundman Doug Hood.

The album is available for preorder now and is due out November 27. Check the tracklist after you check track 20, “Squeeze,” below.
