STINKY TOYS (Buy CDs by this artist)
Stinky Toys (UK Polydor) 1977
ELLI
Elli (Fr. Kata Bami) 1988

The concept of a French punk band with a female singer seemed remarkably promising when Stinky Toys first began gigging around London in late 1976. A year later, this record came as a major disappointment, consisting as it does of uninspired sub-Rolling Stones rock'n'boogie with terrible vocals by Elli Medeiros, who went on to a solo career that never brought her any acclaim in the English-speaking world.
