The best kept secret in music


"Pete Cashmore"

"Having bagged themselves what may prove to be the last great name for a band, 12 Stone Toddler can get on with their one-band assault on that most neglected of genres, that of lounge metal. Simultaneously magnificently louche and uncomplicatedly ROCK, Candles On The Cake takes a wry song about our culture's obsession with age or the lack thereof, and makes it sound so sleazy that it would be right at home underpinning the latest carnal exertions of Jenna Jameson. She's a porn star, as if you didn't know, and 12 Stone Toddler may end up dating her if they continue on their fine trajectory."

"Rock Sound"

Combining swaggering rock, swing, vaudeville, Ukranian folk, fairground and electro-groove, Brighton's Toddler have hit on something bordering on genius. - Rock Sound

"Time Out"

Brighton's brilliantly named, keyboard-fuelled quartet play sleazy stomping grooves and fairground theme tunage. - Time Out


Sharp suited, slinky, fat-ass riffed and cute as a kitten with a two gram line 'Single of the Year for 'Twang' - Unpeeled


Put simply, this is one of the most brilliant, original singles you are likely to hear this year. With a single this mightly, 12 Stone Toddler deserve to be just as huge as their name implies "Single of the Week" for Twang - Artrocker

Feeling a bit camera shy


12 Stone Toddler were created by the combines genius of singer and bass player Chris Otero and fellow songwriter/keyboard player Ben Jones; bolstered by the guitar and drums of the ludicrously talented new members Randall Breneman and Pat Garvey. The Toddler represents the dark child in us all, gleefully smashing through all musical barriers. Showbiz razzamatazz, high octance cartoonery and acid drenched rock. Think Zappa meets Waites meets Morricone
