Melbourne based electronic band TOY DIVISION is Dick Sallows, with help from friends Phillip McKellar (Informatics), and Martin Fripp (sound engineer).
“Cute” was recorded in 1983. This LP edition includes a Bonus 7 inch sampler with 4 more tracks previously released on Temporary Art Tapes between 1981 and 1983.
TOY DIVISION’s music style ranges from ‘Nulabor’ (imagine an Aussie version of Kraftwerk’s ‘Autobahn’), to the ambient ‘Autumn Trees’, to post punk political commentary on ‘Beurit’ and ‘John Wayne once told me’ which are still relevant today, re: Syria and Trump.
