  1. Hi Simon. I cannot but agree with you. Glad you stopped by, and be warned there’s more in the pipeline!

  2. Terrashima were indeed an underground sensation in Derby and Nottingham and caused a storm with some legendary gigs in London. Their manager David Bianchi of Grand union records has many a story to tell about them being banned from almost every place they ever played, getting kicked off a tour with Raging Speedhorn and Il Nino on the first night(!!!) and so forth.
    I think the reason they didnt quite make it a bigger scale is because they were to weird for punk, not technical enough for metal and just unmanageable generally due to the problems within the group as I
    heard that lead singer Mark was had a manic personality and was always clashing with Ryan the guitarist and songwriter.
    A terrific live act, the only band on the planet where every instrument would get destroyed, the singer would be on fire or performing with a plastic bag on his head with the drum kit flying through the
    air and they still managed somehow to play a song!!!

    Mike the bass player is now doing a band called Wander Phantom while Ryan the guitarist is enjoying success with psychedelic rock group The Cult of Dom Keller and also writing/recordin/producing avant garde psyche noise with weird act Psychotic Tapestries.
