Biography

Terrorvision were formed in Bradford, (or more accurately the small town of Keighley) West Yorkshire, England in 1987, originally with the moniker “The Spoilt Bratz”. After a undeniably wise name change, the band released their first album “Formaldehyde” in 1992. Although showing their obvious Heavy Metal influences, there was a sense of humour and pop leaning which could not be hidden, particularly in their breakthrough single “My House”. It was those pop quirks which informed their breakthrough second album “How To Make Friends And Influence People”. A collection of exuberant pop-metal classics, it featured the single “Oblivion”, which showed off TVs trademark mix of disenfranchised lyrics coupled with enormously catchy tunes, in this case with added “Doo-Wops”, giving the band a genuine crossover hit. The singles from HTMFAIP all charted well, propelling the decidedly unfashionable Terrorvision firmly into the mainstream.

By the time their third record, “Regular Urban Survivors” was released in 1996, Briptop was firmly established in the mainstream, but perhaps surprisingly Terrorvision thrived. Single “Perseverance” charted at number five (It’s awesome “Whales and Dolphins” hook proving irresistable to daytime radio and indie dancefloors alike) and the album was a commercial and critical hit. In many ways a bigger, widescreen sequel to HTMFAIP (with a couple of songs suspiciously close to re-makes - Bad Actress = Middleman, Celebrity Hitlist = Discotheque Wreck…

    Terrorvision has to be one of the most underrated bands ever. For me, their sound is way better than most music made in the 90s. I've spent hours searching for similar bands but so far with no luck. Someone has something to recommend to me?

    Always had a soft spot for Terrorvision but was kinda glad they called it a day after Good To Go, I thought that album was appalling. So was a bit sceptic when I heard they were working on new material. But holy shit, this new album is amazing!

    finally going to see these guys live, after missing their last 3 tours due to random crap happening just before the gig day! Looking forward to Sheffield!

    Pitifully ignored group - they had an individualized sound. Way more to them than just 'Tequila'...

    Terrorvision were one of the bands my parents brought me up on - one of the best things they ever did for me! Genuinely can't wait to see them in Newcastle in a couple of months.
