Tunnelvision | Watching The Hydroplanes

LTM are pleased to announce a second archive CD by cult band Tunnelvision, who recorded for Factory Records in 1980/81 and were produced by Martin Hannett and Peter Hook. From Blackpool, cold wavers Tunnelvision were spotted by Factory at the 2nd ever New Order gig in September 1980, and recorded the single Watching the Hydroplanes/Morbid Fear (Fac 39) with legendary producer Martin Hannett. Their second demo, recorded the following year, was mixed by Peter Hook of New Order. The youthful band split in early 1982.
The CD combines both sides of the Factory single with all eight studio demo tracks recorded by the band in 1980-81, carefully remastered from original analogue mastertapes that for many years were thought to have been lost. In addition there is the pre-Hook mix of the second demo and a portastudio demo track. The 15 track remastered CD runs for 70 minutes and the artwork features a faithful adaption of the original Martyn Atkins Fac 39 7" sleeve artwork. The booklet features a detailed band biography and archive photos.
