Hello, we're Golliwog. Vintage '98. We're 5th dimensional aliens from constellation of Lyra and we come in peace. We sing and dance. We play some instruments - barely. We like Earth and all her creatures and we're not racist.
Original Golliwog was a children's character created by Florence Kate Upton in the late 19th century. They were popular throughout the first half of the twentieth century, and notorious throughout the second. Golliwog began as innocent children's hero and cuddly toy, but times have changed and he is now persona non grata, a subject of raging controversy and a symbol of reviled racist stereotyping. The sad thing is that unlike so many modern children's characters, Golliwog is non-violent, positive and cheery.
The original concept of the Golliwog was not intended to humiliate anyone, but some people seem determined to see Golliwog as something he never was. This poor ragdoll was never a problem – the problem is infinite human stupidity and conscientious ignorance! And that's also the message behind the controversial name of this female-fronted four-piece band, that stands for equality and liberty for all.
