Lloyd Barnes (born in 1944 in Jamaica), popularly known as Bullwackie, is the founder of the independent record label Wackies specialized in Jamaican music.

Lloyd Barnes worked for Duke Reid's Treasure Isle label before emigrating to The Bronx, New York in the early 1970s. Here he founded the Wackie's House Of Music and behind this shop-front was the first significant reggae studio and label in the United States.

Wackies' sound is rooted in Studio One and the Black Ark.
