It's 15 years since much loved Bradford underdogs Terrorvision just missed out on a chart topping single.

Their single Tequila climbed to number two in the charts in January 1999, pipped to the top by US rockers’ Offspring with Pretty Fly For A White Guy.

The band split two years later but reformed in 2005 and most recently released an album in 2011.

Now frontman, Tony Wright, is going it alone for a bit with a new solo acoustic project.

And he has begun his new project by heading to Huddersfield to appeal for fans’ help.

Tony has filmed a promotional video with the help of Paddock based music video company AshTV, who have previously worked with Ginger and the Wildhearts and Mr Shiraz.

The shoot saw Tony walking past a host of town’s favourite landmarks including Huddersfield Railway Station, Greenhead Park and Longwood Edge.

He said: “I’ve been to Huddersfield plenty of times but I’ve never gone round it quite as I did with Ash.

“It’s a pretty smart place, there’s some cracking buildings, we had a great day filming.”

Tony said the acoustic project had been born out of touring solo and playing some Terrorvision tunes in a different way.

“When you’re travelling around in a car with just a guitar you end up playing around and working out some different riffs,” he said.

“So I’ve ended up writing an album’s worth of songs.

“I wanted to keep it as basic as possible so I a friend of mine said he’d put together a pledge campaign and it’s through that I’ve come to work with Ash.”

Ash Pears, owner of AshTV said “The idea of the video was to have Tony walking almost non-stop around Huddersfield while talking to the camera, as little homage to the likes of the Fast Show’s ‘Int Milk Brilliant!’ character.

“The response to the video has been ace, and Tony seemed chuffed to have had a mini-tour around town with me.

“He is a lovely and talented chap; I’d urge anyone to get involved in his campaign.”

Tony said he was busy booking his schedule but vowed to come and perform in Huddersfield later in the year.

And he said it was unlikely that Terrorvision would be back performing in the near future.

“It’s like everyone has to be shaking a double six,” he added.

“There’ no point going out if one of us says, ‘oh go on then’. We all have to be totally up for it.”
