The Primitives

Reviews

The Primitives Stop Killing Me 12″

On their third 12”, the PRIMITIVES show a slight decline. The title check, despite a nice chorus and good guitars, lacks the catchiness of their past pop-punk efforts; “Laughing…” is too wimpy for words, though the rockabilly bounce of “Buzz Buzz Buzz” is pleasantly bouncy.

The Primitives Really Stupid 12″

More of that irresistible British noise pop appears here on this second 12” by the PRIMITIVES. The title track has the same mid-tempo guitar power and good female vocals that made their debut so special, though the two songs on the flip are lighter and slower.

The Primitives Thru the Flowers 12″

Imagine the catchy, female-vocal guitar pop of the SHOP ASSISTANTS melded with the simple song structures of the RAMONES, and you end up with something that sounds like this excellent release. Four songs, all snappy and memorable, with hooks galore. A complete surprise!
