Wallis played on the Motorhead album “On Parole,” which was shelved for four years until the band grabbed success with the charts and a rabid following.  Although recorded in 1975, the LP became the fourth album released.


Despite leaving the group in 1976, Wallis is cited as co-writer on “Vibrator” one of the album’s stand up tracks

 

Larry Wallis went on to become a record producer at new punk and new wave label Stiff Records. He recorded a song single ‘Police Car/On Parole’ for Stiff. The single was produced by Nick Lowe. ‘Police Car’ was later covered by The Members.

 

In the 1980s, Wallis became a successful record producer at punk and New Wave label Stiff Records. The Wreckless Eric albums ‘A Louder Silence’ and ‘Wreckless Eric’ were also produced by Wallis. In 1987 Wallis reformed his pre-Motorhead band The Pink Fairies. They recorded and released a new album ‘Kill ‘Em and Eat ‘Em’ in 1987. In all of that time Wallis only released one solo album ‘Death in the Guitafternoon’ in 2001.
