While they weren't the best of the lesser known Factory Records artists (that honor goes to Crispy Ambulance) nor the best band to ever come out of the Blackpool underground scene (which would be either Section 25 or The Membranes, depending upon one's point of view), the very young Tunnelvision did in fact manage one feat of immortality with their song "(Watching the) Hydroplanes", which has the distinction of not only being covered (in several versions) by Washington D.C.'s Unrest but also by New York late legends Codeine (though in concert only). On this fact alone one should be compelled to pick up this CD, as the original version of "Hydroplanes" is indeed a true lost classic of early 1980's English underground rock. It appears here in its original mix alongside three other steller tracks ("Old Comrades", "Morbid Fear", and perhaps their best ever song "Glenn Miller") that make up the band's first demo tape from the fall of 1980. Unfortunately, much of the band's later material is not quite up to par with those classic first four tracks, though a 1981 remake of "Hydroplanes" and two 1981-82 rehearsal tracks ("The Crack", "Eyes") that are included herein show a renewed energy and promise that unfortunately ended when Tunnelvision broke up in early 1982. The other tracks featured on this compilation come from the band's second demo tape (March 1981) and excerpts from two concerts supporting New Order (September 1980 and March 1981 respectively), and overall the sound quality is excellent.Read more ›

By Nicholas S. Blakey on August 20, 2000
Format: Audio CD
While not the best known or brightest shining band of the Factory Records scene, Blackpool's Tunnelvision did achieve near indie immortality with their song "(Watching The) Hydroplanes", which has the notoriety of being covered by two late but great American bands: Washington D.C.'s Unrest and NYC's Codeine (albeit in concert only). Pretty good for a virtually unknown band who only released one single (that song) during their very brief existence. This CD compilation contains both demos and live material, including the band's original four song demo (including "Hydroplanes") for Factory Records which is one of the highlights of this CD. "Glenn Miller", taken from that demo, is arguably the best song the band ever wrote and one of Factory's greatest hits: strong marching drums, simple bass, and swooshing guitars enveloping sad and frustrated vocals giving good example of what Tunnelvision were perfectly capable of doing well. Another example of that comes with the last three superb songs on the CD: "The Crack" and "Eyes" (taken from 1981-82 rehearsals) and a slower re-make of "Hydroplanes" indicate what direction the band may have gone into had they not broken up. This CD is highly reccomended to fans of the other Factory bands from around the same time frame (Crispy Ambulance, Section 25, Joy Division/New Order, A Certain Ratio) and to fans of good, simplistic UK underground rock and roll. Check it out!
