The re-release of their second single, "My House" from the album Formaldehyde, in January 1994 proved to be Terrorvision's breakthrough to UK Singles Chart success, and preceded by months the release of their second album How to Make Friends and Influence People in April 1994 The leading single from that album, "Oblivion", was also a chart success All subsequent singles achieved Top 40 entries in the UK, culminating in the release of "Tequila", which reached number 2

A video compilation, Fired Up and Lairy, was released in April 1995, and included spoof documentary segments interspersed with all the band's videos to date A third album, Regular Urban Survivors, followed in March 1996, and spawned four singles; "Perseverance" their first Top 5 single, peaking at number 5, "Celebrity Hit List", "Bad Actress" and "Easy" Lead singer, Tony Wright, presented the BBC TV music show Top of the Pops on one occasion, and made several appearances on the comedy music quiz Never Mind the Buzzcocks

The band's fourth album, Shaving Peaches, appeared in October 1998 The album's first single, "Josephine", had been well-received the previous month, but it was a Mint Royale remix of "Tequila" which was to prove to be their biggest-ever hit, reaching number 2 in the UK chart in January 1999 That year the song was awarded Best Single at the Kerrang! Awards

The choice was a controversial one among fans The band originally put a selection of their potential single releases to members of their official fan club, who voted in favour of "Day After Day" However, the remixed version of "Tequila" gained favour with BBC Radio 1 DJ Zoë Ball, who championed its release as a single Plans to release "Day After Day" were hastily shelved, and a video quickly shot for the "Tequila" release A few promo copies of the "Day After Day" single still exist

Thus, despite having their greatest hit in 1999 with the track, they were dropped by their record label, EMI, after the release of the album's third single, "III Wishes" It was the band's first single to fall outside the UK Top 40 since the release of "My House", six years earlier During this time the band recruited a fifth member, Josephine Ellul, who played keyboards and sang backing vocals at concerts

The band signed to a smaller label, Papillon and put out a fifth studio album, Good to Go, in 2001 The record, like all their others, was also credited to 'Total Vegas', the band's own independent imprint A number of singles followed, but the band was unable to replicate their previous success Their final single, "Fists of Fury", gained some notoriety for its video, which aped the cowboy-themed clip accompanying Madonna's single, "Don't Tell Me"

EMI issued Whales and Dolphins, a greatest hits collection in 2001, and the band decided to call it a day, after a farewell tour The 'final' concert took place at Penningtons nightclub in their hometown of Bradford, on 4 October 2001, and was released with an interview DVD as a live album, Take the Money & Run - The Final Concert
