Classic Album Review: Terrorvision | Shaving Peaches

The lager-lad power-popsters move beyond the Beatles / Oasis sonic template.

This came out in 1999 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


These days, it seems every Britrock band wants to sound like The Beatles — or at least Oasis covering The Beatles.

Thankfully, lager-lad power-popsters Terrorvision have some other CDs in their player besides Abbey Road and (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? At times, their fourth full-length embraces the platform-boot stomp of Gary Glitter’s glam ’n’ blooz, the rocky rumble of Duane Eddy, and the literate lilt of Ray Davies and The Kinks. And while the boys even display traces of (dare we say?) maturity on some soul-searching ballads, uptempo kickers like The Curse Of Tequila prove that once a lad, always a lad.
