The Primitives - 25th Anniversary of 'Lovely' and Tour 2013

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the release of  their debut album 'Lovely', The Primitives are out on tour beginning this coming Saturday in Bath. They will be performing the whole of the album in sequence and I'm sure a wee bit more.

The album itself, reissued by Cherry Red Records as a double album is available now from the usual musical sources.

From the Cherry Red Records Website:

"Back in the mid-80s, The Primitives combined the fuzz guitars of The Jesus and Mary Chain with the pop sensibilities of Blondie and a nod to cult heroes The Velvet Underground. They swiftly rose from being a popular Indie guitar outfit to charting worldwide with ‘Crash’, kickstarting a craze in bands fronted by blonde female singers (Transvision Vamp, The Darling Buds et al).

'Lovely' was The Primitives’ debut album. Issued in April 1988 on the back of the success of ‘Crash’, it peaked at No. 6 in the UK, staying on the charts for ten weeks, and yet is unavailable on CD.

The Primitives’ profile has not been as high since their heyday, what with the release of a brand new studio album Echoes And Rhymes last year and Cherry Red’s 2-CD compilation of the band’s pre-RCA recordings, Everything’s Shining Bright, which surfaced in March.

This 25th anniversary 2-CD set boasts most of the band’s B-sides and other rare tracks from that successful year, as well as including those hit singles in full:
Crash (February 1988) No.5
Out Of Reach (April 1988) No.25
Way Behind Me (September 1988) No.36

Compiled with the help of guitarist PJ Court, this 2-CD compilation boasts re-mastered music as well as a splendid, annotated booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from the band."
