T IS FOR THE TYRREL CORPORATION

Some early 90s garage house/philly house. Going for a pop crossover but there was always something sad about even their most upbeat work.

The Tyrrel Corporation were Joe Watson and Tony Barry, who were active in the first half of the 1990s. They signed to Cooltempo, a subsidiary of Chrysalis. Despite releasing a slew of singles in 1992/93, they never cracked the charts and faded away after two LPs “Play For Today” and “North East of Eden”.

I assume they took their name from The Tyrell Corporation. The Tyrell Corporation is a fictional megacorporation from the 1982 Ridley Scott film Blade Runner. Based in Los Angeles, Tyrell is named for its founder Dr. Eldon Tyrell and is a bio-tech corporation which produces life-like androids called replicants. Tyrell’s slogan is “More human than human.”

The great British public may not have taken them to their hearts but I did. Wallow in disco sadness from five different singles:

The Tyrrel Corporation – Better Days Ahead (diddys Winter Holiday Mix)  

The Tyrrel Corporation – Six O’Clock (Original Philly Mix)  

The Tyrrel Corporation – One Day (2 Raw Vocal Mix) by Roger S  

The Tyrrel Corporation – You’re Not Here (Loveland Full On 12)  

The Tyrrel Corporation – Going Home (Saxy Mix) by Roger S
