RSD 2018 release. Radiation Deluxe Series present a reissue of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry’s Talk About The Weather, originally released in 1985. Red Lorry Yellow Lorry were one of the finest post-punk groups of the mid-80s, founded in 1981 in Leeds by chief member Chris Reed. Molded after the likes of Wire and Joy Division, the Lorries combined angular walls of guitar noise with throbbing bass lines and drum machine to create a unique sound that was indebted to the first wave of UK post-punk but quickly evolved into a new sound all their own. After several singles on the Red Rhino label, the group released their debut LP in 1985. The group’s finest effort, Talk About The Weather reached #3 on the NME album charts and has maintained a reputation as one of the best UK post-punk records of the 1980s three decades later. Essential stuff. Includes four bonus tracks. 180 gram vinyl; Limited edition of 500 (hand numbered).
