Fabulous Poodles: Toy Town People

Many new wave acts from the Class of 1977, such as the Clash, XTC, and Talking Heads are beloved and long missed.

Then there are the lesser known groups from '77 who are largely forgotten. The Fabulous Poodles is one of those acts. This English band is hard to classify, as it included a violinist who also dabbled in the electric edition of that instrument. But if I had to compare them to somebody, because of their quirkiness, Talking Heads comes to mind. Or maybe perhaps a much stranger act, Devo.

Here are the Fab Poos--who I miss by the way--belting out "Toy Town People."
