“Excellent guitar-heavy rock reggae, somewhere between Bob Marley and Bare Naked Ladies”

The Toyes, released in 1996, contains a host of unforgettable delights. In addition to the 1983 original version of "Smoke Two Joints," featured cuts are "Something Went Down in Jerusalem," "What’s So Bad About A Nipple" and the beloved counter-culture anthem "(Hey Uncle Sam) Leave Us Pot Smokers Alone." Also featured is the hilarious Halloween parody "Monster Hash."
" ' The Toyes' is rockin’ roots reggae that is smart, funny and always entertaining. A unique and tasty brew, served up by a strange and wonderful crew. Reggae/rock beats with thumping bass and drums. Stir in tasty guitar and crisp multi-part vocals. It’s tight, it’s big and it’s FUN.
"But the songs are the thing! Toyes songs are so catchy, so down-right clever, that the depth of perception in their writing sometimes doesn’t hit you until later. A BIG groove with a big message.
"They rock us silly and make us happy, and everybody dances all night long. All the while, The Toyes dissect our world, and our politics, with surgical, and often brutally funny, precision.
"Cheech & Chong’s favorite Reggae band" San José METRO
“The song topics and turns of phrase constitute a powerful first impression, and The Toyes support with excellent guitar-heavy rock reggae, somewhere between Bob Marley and Bare Naked Ladies ... It’s hard to ‘Just Say No’ to The Toyes.”
