Led by the guitar genius that is Olga the Toy Dolls (from Sunderland don’t you know!) scored a massive `novelty’ hit in 1983 with a punked up version of “Nellie The Elephant”. Though they have always added their own stamp to the numerous cover versions they’ve done, it’s originals like “She Goes To Finos”, “Deidree’s A Slag”, “We’re Mad”, “James Bond Lives Down Our Street” and “Geordie’s Gone To Jail” that have endeared them to Punks across the globe – and we mean across the globe as Olga & Co. have literally toured all four corners of it!
