Thirty five years later, I look back upon the music produced by the Terminal Sunglasses with much pride. I am also still impressed by how much press we got and how well our music was received critically (see charts and reviews), considering how amateur we actually were. Clearly, our talent lay as much or more in creating hype as it did in songwriting. How many bands can claim that Frank Zappa went on MTV to introduce their video in which Leonard Cohen appears (check out Psycho Rail on the video download page)?
