On one of my coldwave excursions to Paris to research our compilation I had to leave the apartment I’d found on gumtree two days early. I had lunch with Laura who’d once booked my band, and her boyfriend Apollo. They had matching tattoos of bats and Apollo was a model in a band in Paris, he was into comic books. ‘Tales From Greenfuzz’ was great, about a sandwich trying to rescue his girlfriend from an evil gang of Kebabs. Apollo also loved coldwave and minimal and told me about his friend from school whose mum had been in one of those bands, Tokow Boys.
A French new wave pop band, Tokow Boys were signed to Virgin and released this, their debut single in 1980. In the post punk pop vein of Lene Lovich or Altered Images, this track appears on last years amazing French post punk coldwave electro no wave (‘78-‘83) compilation ‘Des Jeunes Gens Modernes’.
