3 Colours Red were a British punk/ rock band. They achieved their biggest chart success at the end of the 1990s, along with other 'Britrock' bands that retained a certain pop sensibility, such as Ash and Feeder. The band was named by sticking a pin in a London listings magazine, Time Out. It landed randomly on an advert for the concluding part of Polish movie director Krzysztof Kieślowskis ' Three Colors' trilogy. They went on to record two UK top 20 albums, including six top 40 singles.
