The Primitives

British indie pop band the Primitives were formed in Coventry, England in mid-1985 by singer Kieron, guitarist Paul Court, bassist Steve Dullaghan, and drummer Pete Tweedie; after a handful of gigs Kieron was replaced by vocalist Tracy Tracy, a peroxide-blonde bombshell whose presence inspired a more melodic approach, which earned the group inevitable comparisons to Blondie. The Primitives' debut single, "Thru the Flowers," appeared on their own Lazy label in 1986 and was quickly followed by radio sessions for Janice Long, Andy Kershaw, and John Peel. Their second effort, "Really Stupid," preceded the band's first European tour, with "Stop Killing Me" appearing in early 1987. Tweedie was dismissed from the group (allegedly for mistreating Tracy's cats) prior to the Primitives' signing to major label RCA, and with new drummer Tig Williams the group recorded its 1988 debut LP, Lovely, scoring a major U.K. pop hit with the masterful "Crash." After completing an American tour, Dullaghan exited the lineup, with bassist Paul Sampson stepping in for 1989's Pure; the album failed to re-create the success and excitement of its predecessor, however, and when 1991's Ian Broudie-produced Galore met a similar fate, the Primitives disbanded.

Tragedy brought the band back together in 2009 when bassist Steve Dullaghan passed away. Tracy, Court, and Williams re-formed the band (with Raph Moore on bass) to play a couple of shows in October of that year. Things went so well that they decided to make a true comeback, launching a 2010 tour of England and even a show in New York City. They returned to the studio with original producer Paul Sampson and soon released a four-song EP of newly written songs (Never Kill a Secret) in 2011 and an album of covers of obscure female-fronted songs from the '60s (Echoes and Rhymes) in 2012. Both were released by Spanish label Elefant and showed that the band still had plenty of charm left, even after two decades. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

A few decades ahead of their time.

I hear they are beginning to tour again.
What a voice!
Sounds like 'Lush' owes them a bit of gratitude... :)
"Lovely" was pop-rock bliss!
Anyone who would kick out a band member for mistreating their cat is A-OK in my book

What a fantastic band. I have followed them since back in '88 there are some excellent albums missing from the discography like Lovely and Galore
