Description :Gilles Mortio, Clement Nourry and Jean-Philippe De Gheest formed Joy As A Toy to satisfy their love of fun and games. The band's main ambition is to get the audience to dance to their raw and largely improvised rock music which is based on powerful riffs and radical atmosphere changes. The trio is capable of suddenly switching from a simple melody to sonic madness that verges on trippy, psychedelic music.

As a result, they will wear the audience out and leave it feeling empty. But the band might not get everyone to dance. They are very much aware of this paradox. They may rule the dancefloor just as well as they may suck the energy out of the listener. They have even made this Joy As A Toy’s registrered trademark since they claim to play 'tennis pop' and 'vampire rock'.

Recorded in Brussels in two days with special guests Mai Lev, Fred 'Lyenn' Jacques and Berlin-based belgian vibraphone player Els Vandeweyer, Valparaiso is packed with exhilaration, energy, poetry and unbridled humour. It’s a kind of high-octane mix between The Talking Heads and Robert Wyatt, sprinkled with Deerhoof's tongue in cheek attitude.
