Leeds in the late 1970s and early 1980s was a hotbed of post-punk and gothic rock. Well we call it that now. At the time my late grandmother called it a dreadful racket, because there were no proper tunes and it was all just bang, bang, bang.
One of the many bands to emerge from the fetid swamps of the Leeds scene were Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, who had a string of hits on the NME indie charts between 1982 and 1989. I can't claim to have been one of their most devoted fans but they had their moments. Here are two of them.
"Walking On Your Hands" - Red Lorry Yellow Lorry
"Hollow Eyes" - Red Lorry Yellow Lorry
