Named for the guitarist Nigel Tufnel in Spinal Tap, they were the first act to be managed by key industry figure Campbell Smith, who also established their label, Globule Records, which released their sole album, Lurid in 1994 via Sony.
The track 'Husky Vooms' appeared on the 95bFM compilation Louder in 1994 and a video, with NZ on Air Funding, was made for it. Two other videos, for 'Pettibone' and 'Beautiful Ride', were made in 1995.
The Tufnels' album is currently unavailable and few images seem to exist.
