Toystore was the alias from the enigmatic twee-popster Jenky, a notoriously reclusive number about whom next to nothing is known. Relating to story, his demonstration tapes showed up unsolicited within the doorstep from the small Michigan-based indie label Janeane Information sometime in early 1998, followed only with a notice reading “At the most, please launch my music; at least, please usually do not make fun from it.” Following attempts to track the package’s roots demonstrated fruitless, but undaunted the label released Toystore’s debut recording Jazz for Twee later on that same 12 months in an exceedingly limited release of just 100 copies; a little but fervent cult pursuing right now eagerly awaits Jenky’s next move.
