Terrorvision Robbed Of No. 1 By Spice Girl?
But they were denied the coveted No.1 slot by The Offspring with Pretty Fly For A White Guy. Now Wright has recalled the run up to the release and he tells New Rock Times' reporter Eric Mackinnon that the original plan would have taken the band to the top of the charts - but for the team behind Ginger Spice.
He says: "The week before was the week we were going to release Tequila but unfortunately we went to the meeting at the record label and Geri Halliwell's management were really good and they told us we couldn't release it that week."
He continues: "They said it was too strong a song and Geri wanted to talk her way through another cover version and she had to get to No.1. And our management didn't have the same clout so we released it a week later and we sold something like 60,000 more copies than Geri did but we only got to No.2." Read more here.
