This show was 2nd in the global rock chart, 4th in the global lounge chart, 5th in the global groove chart, 7th in the global pop chart and 16th in the global soul chart.
Fronted by indiepop blonde bombshell Tracy Tracy, The Primitives emerged from the independent scene of the mid-80s that spawned The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, The Wedding Present and Primal Scream. Their sound distilled the shimmering guitar jangle of the Byrds, the buzzsaw style of The Ramones and 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 when Morrissey named them as one of his favourite bands.
An album of new original Primitives songs entitled Spin-O-Rama was released in 2014 and was showered with lavish praise. The general opinion being that it sounded like an alternative follow up to their classic 1988 album Lovely.
Thanks to The Primitives.
