Listen: exclusive Terminal Cheesecake rehearsal recordings

July 2013

Terminal Cheesecake released five albums and disbanded in 1995. Russell Smith, guitarist in the group remembers: "It was a weird time, the late 80s. Everybody was losing the plot and going off raving. No one wanted to see live bands. Festivals were dog-on-a-string things".

Now, after a 20 year hiatus, the London indie psych outfit return to the stage at Oxfordshire's Supernormal festival in August. Listen to Terminal Cheesecake rehearsing for their comeback above.
