Lene Lovich: New Toy (extended) / Cats Away

Format: 12″

Label: Stiff (BUYIT 97)

Country: UK

Year: 1981

Price paid: $5

Purchased at: The Record Archive, Rochester NY


‘New Toy’ is the first single off Lene’s third LP of the same name. Thomas Dolby wrote and produced this single, which peaked at #53 on the UK charts.

The artwork on this one is simply marvelous IMO. The stripped down imagery evokes feelings of French surrealist film. Dangerous, tense, and immediate.

*note the resemblance to this Stiff Devo EP, 1977
