Characterised by heavy drum machine patterns and cut-throat, droning guitars, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry (The Lorries to their friends) arrived on the newly developing Goth rock scene in 1981 and immediately became indie chart regulars and fan favourites. Between 1982 and 1987 the band cut two albums and a dozen singles for Red Rhino records, all of which breached the Independent Chart's Top Twenty. Three BBC sessions (two for the legendary John Peel) were also squeezed into this period, and all of that material, including b- sides, a 7" given away with one of those albums and a song only ever recorded for the BBC, is included here. Packed with indie chart hits - two top five albums and countless top twenty singles. 53 tracks across 3CD. Includes eleven previously unheard BBC recordings and one song unavailable elsewhere. Booklet includes sleeve shots, track source information, and sleevenotes by the excellent Mick Mercer.
