Q AWARDS SHOW: Toy

Critics' choice
Scowling like the Stones and riffing like the Stooges, burning through OMD-like synth ballads, krautrock grooves and Hawkwindian chugs with the same ferocity, and taking tips from the psych-noise rush of My Bloody Valentine and Ride along the way, Toy are one of London's best young bands. Catch them tonight as they play from their awesome self-titled debut album, released last year, and preview new material.
