About this item

The Primitives emerged from the UK independent music scene of the mid-1980s, with a sound that distilled the shimmering guitar chime of The Byrds, the buzzsaw style of The Ramones and 60's girl group melodies into two-and-a-half-minute pop gems. After topping the indie singles chart several times, their widely acclaimed first album, Lovely, made them one of the UK's most revered alternative rock acts, while the international 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. The band were reunited in 2009. The Best Of The Primitives is available on vinyl for the first time and features the hit singles "Crash", "Put Of Reach", "Way Behind Me", "Sick Of It", "Secrets" and many more classic hits.
