The Terminal Sunglasses were part of the Montreal punk/new wave/alternative music scene from 1983 to 1985. Labelled an "avant-garage" band, they updated 60's garage band influences and Velvet Underground avant-guard tendencies with 1980's punk sensibilities. The band released one four song cassette (Re-Discover Your Mind), a highly critically acclaimed full length LP (Wrap Around Cool), and two videos (Psycho Rail and Antenna Dilemma, the former played on MTV and the latter banned from Much Music). They also appeared on two OG records compilations (From Montreal and It Came From Canada, Volume 1). Their secret dream is to have Celine Dion cover their hit single "My Cat Got Run Over By a Bus". Not only do they think this is the ideal song for her talents, but it would also allow them to retire in grand style.
Fortunately, all of the above material is out of print. Unfortunately, it is all now available again, here at this web site. You will find high quality MP3's of all recorded Terminal Sunglasses songs, rare previously unreleased songs from live shows, mpeg's of the two videos, and various other garbage nobody sane could possibly be interested in. But that is what the web is for, right?
