Indie pop darlings return...

By far the most successful British group to emerge from the indie pop movement, The Primitives matched chart success with underground acclaim.

Truly, the band would have written the same songs for Sarah Records as they did on RCA. Best known for the perennial radio classic 'Crash' there is much more to The Primitives than that.

Led by Tracy Tracy, the band combined jangling guitars with a vampish wit. Splitting in 1992, The Primitives left behind them thousands of mourning fans and a small but perfectly formed back catalogue.

Reforming on a whim in 2009, one show suddenly turned into a small tour. Taking each date as it comes, The Primitives began jamming fresh ideas. Deciding to release a new EP, 'Never Kill A Secret' is out on on Fortuna POP!.

The lead track from the EP, 'Rattle My Cage' is a fuzzed up slice of 60s pop. Reminiscent of some long lost Nuggets era act, The Primitives retain that sense of innocent melody which propelled those early hits.
