How to Make Friends and Influence People
The first time I heard Terrorvision was in December 1992 at the tender age of 16 when they were supporting The Ramones on their UK tour. At that time I knew nothing of Terrorvision, however as soon as they hit the stage that was it! I tracked down their Formaldehyde CD (the original Total Vegas pressing), bought every single release on all formats and even joined the fan club for a short time. This was my band, my secret & then one Saturday morning I was watching the Chart Show, it was the Rock Chart that week and on came the Oblivion video. I knew at that point they would no longer be my secret, oh well! I remember picking up the album on cassette one lunchtime (blowing what was left of my £29.50 a week YTS wages) and it instantly becoming one of our 3 1994 summer soundtracks(the others were Therapy; Troublegum, and The Wildhearts; Earth Vs.). Alice What's The Matter is still one hell of a powerful statement of an album opener, Oblivian was our drunken anthem with it's doo waps and catchy bridge, Pretend Best Friend - the hardest song to sing along to without hyperventilating, discotheque wreck an awesome little headbanger. But it also had depth and soul in slower songs like Middleman, Some People Say. Overall I have to say that this is an essential album for any collection, if there is not one song that you like, well you don't like music - end of!
