Biography

Box of Toys were born from the ashes of A Select Committee (1981-83), a powerpop band formed by Brian Jones, Tim Lees (both later of Something French), Steve Downey (later of Come in Tokyo) and Andy Redhead (on drums, percussion and synth). Even before the band broke up in 1983,in 1982 Redhead teamed up with Phil Martin (on sax, keys and vocals, formerly of 3D), Roy Campbell (on bass and vocals) and Brian Atherton (on vocals and synth, later of The Light).
Before releasing any single, the quartet recorded a session with John Peel in April 1983.

Peel Session (April 1983)
- When Daylight Is Over (Sunset)
- Time Takes Me Back
- Precious Is The Pearl
- I’m Thinking Of You Now

Within a few months (august 1983) I’m Thinking of You now would be the band’s first single (b/w Old Man Rome) and other two tracks performed during the session. Precious Is The Pearl and When Daylight Is Over (Sunset) appeared on the second single (the 12” single had an additional b-side It Goes Without Saying). The band split in late 1984, and Andy Redhead joined a later version of 3D.
