Album Premiere: Albums & Singles 1982-1989: 4CD Clamshell Box by Red Lorry Yellow Lorry

Red Lorry Yellow Lorry - Live
3 February 2017

Red Lorry Yellow Lorry – Live

An integral part of the UK’s post punk explosion, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry emerged from Leeds with their unique, demanding sound during the early 1980s. Guided by the singular vision of iconic bandleader and figurehead Chris Reed and sideman David Wolfenden, the band took on board elements of the burgeoning gothic outlook of the post punk era, fused it with relentlessly rigid drum machine rhythms and an impenetrable wall of distorted guitars, and won a strong following, both in the UK and abroad.

Their first two albums, Talk About The Weather and Paint Your Wagon, emerged on Red Rhino Records before a jump to Situation Two inspired a development in the band’s sound and a broadening of their outlook for the albums Nothing Wrong and Blow. All four vital albums are included here, along with singles, b-sides, and remixes. This retrospective collection charts a fascinating history through the 1980s as seen through the eyes of Chris Reed and co.

Red Lorry Yellow Lorry’s Albums & Singles 1982-1989: 4CD Clamshell Box (CRCDMBOX32-4CD), out February 24th via Cherry Red Records, is a must for the serious post-punk and goth rock enthusiast, and a key part of the incredible musical explosion that took place in the UK during the 1980s. Chris Reed and Red Lorry Yellow Lorry are still active today, performing gigs in the UK and mainland Europe.

The Big Takeover exclusively premieres three classic cuts off the compilation, “Walking on Your Hands”, “Beating My Head”, and “Chance”:
