Hi, what are you looking for?



Non-stop beats, voices that could make a ghost dance, who goes there? Red Lorry Yellow Lorry…this Leeds Positive Punk band created dark catchy tunes that you could not avoid in the mid 80’s. My favorite by them was their second album, Paint Your Wagon – there is not one bad tune on this record. Red Lorry Yellow Lorry was all about the groove; when I saw them in ’85 they had drummers all playing floor toms which forced us to move to their groove. The vibe can be felt on this album, each song has a driving drum that commands your braincells to stand to attention. Although this band has a darkness about them, many of their songs have sense of upliftment to them will bring your spirits up. The singer has this really deep voice with an old world feeling to the way he sings his words. Musically, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry were amazing to me – their guitar feedback just washed over your whole skeleton & put you in a trance-like state. They paired music that made you move with lyrics that made you say, I’m going to paint my bedroom black. All you have to do is listen to songs like “Walking On Your Hands” & everything I have written here will ring true!
After the jump, check a rare Lorries video…
