So I sort of casually mentioned them in the Joe Strummer thread, but I now feel that Raped / Cuddly Toys deserve their own thread! Wooh!



Raped were formed in 1977 by Sean Purcell (Vocals / gay Billy Idol look alike), Paddy Fields (drums, Japanese drag queen), Tony Baggett ( bass /token straight guy), and Faebhean Kwest (guitar / ridiculous fucking name I had to look up the spelling for). At first the punk scene totally rejected them due to their "offensive" name and incredibly gay tendencies. For their first magazine interview, they took the journalist to a gay sadomasochist pick up joint. They made their name through scams and attempted publicity stunts, but had some really quality music to go along with it.

Raped: "Moving Target"


Shortly there after, they decided to follow their love of Bowie and T-Rex and changed their music to glam rock and their name to the Cuddly Toys (I've chatted with Tony a few times, really nice guy. He said they wanted to pick a name that was the complete opposite of Raped). Cuddly Toys had some success in Japan but eventually broke up due to their record company stealing from them and the death of their manager-to-be Marc Bolan.

Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

Paddy Fields!

I felt this thread would appeal to you, Mat

EDIT: Yeah, I figured most of you guys would liked Raped better than Cuddly Toys...but I figured since I like Cuddly Toys so much I'd post both.

I thought that Raped are pretty cool. Can't seem to find any discography as such though, which sucks.

Nice find!

Well I totally WON'T go to that forum that DOESN'T exist and WON'T put their album on there, if anyone wants it.

I didn't really like Raped; Cuddly Toys aren't bad, but I can't see myself listening to them that much.

Raped sounds awesome! Cuddly Toys I think I'd have to listen to a little more.

Raped is OK, but Cuddly Toys sounds like a karaoke version of Bowie. I lol'd at how awful it was.
