Primitives at Dublab

Although the original line-up that The Primitives started with in Coventry (England) included PJ Court, Keiron McDermott, Steve Dullaghan and Pete Tweedie, before releasing their first and successful album, “Lovely”, in 1988, Tweedie had already been substituted by Tig Williams, and Mcdermott was replaced by the platinum blonde Tracy Tracy, the band’s true icon. Coming out of the independent scene that bands like The Jesus & Mary Chain, The Wedding Present, My Bloody Valentine and Primal Scream came out of, this line-up found the perfect balance between the crystalline guitars of The Byrds, the agility and speed of the Ramones and the unforgettable melodies of Orange Juice. Their return after a long hiatus is nothing short of classic. Their new songs are fresh, powerful and reminiscent of the band we used to and still love.
