TRB Two (also known as TRB2) is the second studio album by Tom Robinson Band. It was recorded days after the original drummer, Dolphin Taylor, had left the band. The TRB disbanded four months after the release. Steve Ridgeway was responsible for the cover design. The album was dedicated to Mrs. Mary Towers, the mother of Liddle Towers. Liddle Towers was an amateur boxer who had died in police custody in 1976 - his case was the subject of the song "Blue Murder".
