Toy Watches were a punk/pop band based in Ipswich and Brisbane between 1979 and 1981. A popular live prospect, they were picked up by aspirational label Peanut Republic. The result was this obscure 45; highlighted by the punky pop A-side, "Too Long".

The label features a map of Queensland, with state premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen bursting through the fold. Don't be fooled by the cheeky grin, it wasn't fun politically. This is a love song, not political polemic.
