Fronted by Tracey Tracey and Paul Court, and an ever changing lineup of a rhythm section, the Primitives from Coventry were one of the acts associated with the C86 movement who actually went on to break the Top 40 and appear in Smash Hits and Top Of The Pops. Though their sound fitted well alongside the likes of The Shop Assistants and Talulah Gosh, their sound also bore the trademarks of The Buzzcocks and Blondie. Their own label, Lazy, put out three singles before they re-issed the first 'Thru The Flowers' signed to RCA and released 'Crash' the song with which they are most associated. These were their first three singles:
Primitives -'Thru The Flowers.' mp3
Primitives -'Really Stupid.' mp3
Primitives -'Stop Killing Me.' mp3
Still trying to find a vinyl copy of Galore...
