Alongside New Model Army and a fertile bhangra scene, Terrorvision were the Yorkshire city of Bradford's chief musical export. And, after capturing a U.K. number one single in 1999, there was every reason for them to be a source of local pride. After abandoning the name Spoilt Bratz in 1991, Terrorvision (named after a cult B-movie) formed around vocalist Tony Wright, guitarist Mark Yates, bass player Leigh Marklew, and drummer Shutty. A single demo tape was enough to convince EMI Records to offer them not only a deal, but their own imprint, Total Vegas. A succession of albums followed, melding pop hooks with metal guitars (akin to a harsher Cheap Trick). These included Formaldehyde (1992), How to Make Friends and Influence People (1994), and Regular Urban Survivors (1996). These spawned a series of chart appearances for singles such as "New Policy One," "Pretend Best Friend," the excellent "Alice, What's the Matter?" and "Perseverance." The latter took them into the U.K. Top Five, illustrating their broadening commercial appeal. That was confirmed with the release of 1998's Shaving Peaches, a heady mix of whacked-out pop and rock piledrivers with a real dumb charm that some compared to the Ramones.
