known as the Spoilt Bratz, Bardford’s Terrorvision (named after an 80s US
comedy horror movie) singed to EMI Records in 1991 under their very own imprint
label, Total Vegas Recordings. Their single, ‘My House’ from debut album, Formaldehyde (1993) gained favourable
Top 30 chart action and it was no looking back for the party-rock-four-piece of
Tony Wright (vocals), Leigh Marklew (Bass), Mark Yates (Guitar) and Ian
"Shutty” Shuttleworth (drums).
UK Single chart action for tracks such as, ‘Alice What’s The Matter’ (#24),
‘Oblivion’ (#21) and ‘Middle Man’ (#25) from their EMI sophomore album, How To Make Friends And Influence People
and ‘Perseverance’ (#5) and ‘Bad Actress’ (#10) from third album, Regular Urban Survivors,Terrorvision
were also becoming known for their ‘never fail to satisfy’ live performances
and in so doing became the default festival band during this mid 90s period.
Third album Shaving Peaches was released in October
1998 and saw the band employ four different producers, including Edwyn Collins
(Orange Juice) and the Utah Saints. The result took the Terrorvision sound into
some previously un-charted territory with a more pop-oriented collection of
songs. This drew mixed responses from the critics and their by now
well-established fan-base, however, when Radio 1 DJ Zoe Ball began regularly
airing one of the single b-side remixes of ‘Tequila’, EMI rush released the
version as an a-side single, the result of which saw the track reach the number
2 position in the UK Singles chart, the band’s highest ever chart placing.
