    Hosanna in excelsis! Thanks for sharing these images with us Mark – a truly marvelous and unique band…….we will never see their like again etc etc

  • Andrea Smith

    Thanks so much for being willing to share these moments, Mark.
    I was at this gig. God’s Toys – always entertaining,creative and innovative. They were definitely before their time.
    June 2011.

    Excellent site and ace pictures. God’s Toys were great live; followed them around Cov and on the Adam & Ants tour on the guest list, they were so good at Tiffanys that the Ants roadies pulled the plug on them! Knew John Hobley the drummer from school; that tour was about the end for them. Remember last seeing Dill fronting “I” in the Coventry Catheadral; that was a bit weird. Cheers ; )-

    These are the best photo’s, outside of the BBC gig, I ever saw of us.
    Recently, myself (Nick Kavaz) & Steve Gilmore (The ‘Manager’ at the time) have digi-mixed15 tracks, from final mixes, done at various studios.
    I have used the photo’s you took of us to make a film accompanying the track ‘Rose’.
    I have accretited the photographs to yourself.
    I have left them unchanged, other than to ‘videoise’ them.
    I will send you a link to You Tube, since that is still private, whilst being completing i.e. checking things like this.
    Hope to hear from you soon,
    Nick Kavaz.
