80's goth bands logos pt.V (Red Lorry Yellow Lorry)

While I'm scanning gig ads for the previous post, here's something else...
The Lorries were a great band and like Gary Marx, quite underrated! ;-)

They used this logo for almost four (4) years, that is from 1982 till approximatively, 1986.
The two (2) trucks appeared on the sleeve of "Beating my head" 7"single (in color as 
you can see).
The last time they used it on a record label, sleeve or other, was if my memory serves me  
well, for "The very best of" in 2000. But by 1986 it was abandoned from regular releases.

A great band, a not so great symbol...
Let alone the resemblance to the mighty Jamie Reid's "nowhere buses" for 
the Sex Pistols in 1976.
