Fronted by indiepop blonde bombshellTracy Tracy,The Primitivesemerged from the independent scene of the mid-80s that spawnedThe Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, The Wedding PresentandPrimal Scream. Their sound distilled the shimmering guitar jangle ofThe Byrds, the buzzsaw style ofThe Ramonesand 60’s girl group melodies into two and a half minute pop gems. Regular session guests on John Peel’s radio show, with many an appearance in his Festive Fifty, their career was boosted/hindered whenMorrisseynamed them as one of his favourite bands.
A widely acclaimed first album, ‘Lovely’, made them the UK’s indie darlings, while the huge success of the single ‘Crash’ saw them cross over to a mass audience. Further chart success followed, along with two more studio albums, 'Pure' and 'Galore', plus extensive tours of Europe and the US, before the band called it a day in 1992. In 2008, Mojo Magazine voted the Primitives’ second single ‘Really Stupid’ one of the Top 40 UK indie singles of all time.
In 2011The Primitivesreleased the‘Never Kill A Secret EP’ through Fortuna Pop!. The record featured two brand new songs and two covers of semi obscure female fronted songs. The two covers were a precursor to their latest album ‘Echoes and Rhymes’ released on Elefant Records.
