Lord Tracy is a hard rock band formed in 1985.

Lord Tracy originally consisted of former Black Oak Arkansas bassist Kinley "Barney" Wolfe, drummer Chris Craig and guitarist Jimmy Rusidoff. Terry Glaze, formerly of Pantera, joined in 1986 as lead vocalist. Their first album, Deaf Gods of Babylon, was released in the fall of 1989 on UNI Records / MCA.[1] The album's lead single, "Out With The Boys," reached No. 40 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart.[2] A ballad, "Foolish Love," was the album's follow up single. Although the Deaf Gods Of Babylon album failed to sell many copies, it remains a notable release for its use of humor and its diverse influences, ranging from Beastie Boys to Motörhead.[3] Following the release of Deaf Gods, the band toured extensively from 1989–1991 and broke apart while on the road in the summer of 1991.

Bassist Kinley Wolfe would go on to join The Cult as a touring member from 1991 to 1994 and then teamed up with guitarist Mark Christian from The Big F in the band Milk The Cow whose eponymous debut was issued in 1996. After moving back to Texas, he formed Dallas trio The American Fuse, releasing One Fell Swoop in 1997.[4] More recently Wolfe has been playing with The Javelinas.

In 2004, Lord Tracy reunited and has since played a limited number of shows per year in Texas, Arizona, Mexico, Brazil and Spain.[5] Guitar player Brian Harris replaced Jimmy Rusidoff in 2006. Lord Tracy continues to be creatively active and released the album Porn Again in 2008.

Between 2008 and 2010, Lord Tracy would play off and on throughout the south and mid west. In 2010, Patrick "Taz" Bentley, a founding member of Burden Bros., filled in for drummer Chris Craig for a hometown show at the House of Blues in Dallas. Craig was unable to play the show because of prior commitments. Instead of replacing Craig with Taz, the other members decided to form a new band with Tax playing drums. This band would initially be named Pinches Bolillos, but the name was changed to 76 early on. 76 does not play any Lord Tracy songs, writing and playing original songs instead.

On Saturday, April 6, 2013, the original line-up of Lord Tracy reunited to perform as the headline act at the Basement Reunion #5 at Trees in Dallas, Texas. On April 13, 2013, the band played a show at The Stage Stop in Memphis, Tennessee. Lord Tracy returned to The Stage Stop to play consecutive nights on February 2nd and 3rd, 2018. The owner of The Stage Stop, Nita Makris, supported the band from their early days onwards, and requested they play the final two shows at the venue before it closed.[6]

On June 25, 2019, The New York Times Magazine listed Lord Tracy among hundreds of artists whose material was reportedly destroyed in the 2008 Universal fire.[7]
