Blasting Off

Blasting Off

[blast, blahst]
Blasting Off was Red Lorry Yellow Lorry's fifth and final album, released on the small Sparkhead independent record label in 1991. The band at this point consisted of Chris Reed and a completely new assortment of musicians; Dave Wolfenden and Leon Phillips were long gone. Reed and his new cohorts recorded the LP in a Los Angeles studio. Inspiration had apparently run dry as only one of the songs, "Talking Back" (issued as a single), could be considered on a par with the band's previous output. The rest of the songs here are dry and bland, offering none of The Lorries' customary dark, rough excitement. Longtime fans were disappointed and the critical response (by the few critics who bothered to review it) was grim. Reed broke up the band soon after.
