Released back on the 12th May 1997, the 3 Colours Red debut album “Pure” was brought out through Creation Records. The album contained fourteen tracks, five of which were released as singles. The heavy and thick album inlay contains all of the tracks' lyrics along with appropriate artwork.
From the start, the album delivers a very British rock of the ‘90s sound. With strong influences from the likes of The Wildhearts (guitarist Chris McCormack being Danny McCormack's brother), Senseless Things (drummer Keith’s old band), AP&S, Cecil and Honeycrack, the band have put together a well-produced, well-written, rock ‘n’ roll triumph of an album. Packed with killer tracks, the four-piece play a mature mixture of pop/punk/rock tracks with meaty riffs and addictive melodies running throughout. Vocalist Pete Vuckovic delivers some gritty vocals that work perfectly with the layered tower of chunky guitars.
All in all, the album is a fantastic debut album from the British rockers. Well, well worth getting you hands on.

You know how some albums just have a certain something, a sheer energy about them, a raw feel that's difficult to find and even harder to pinpoint? Well "Pure" is one of those albums. I loved it the first time I heard it but unlike some other albums, it's appeal hasn't faded with time, only grown. 3CR play as a tight unit on this album, each track exploring a new and different alleyway - none of the songs sound the same. And what good songs they are - right from the opening moments of the title track, the sound is perfect. The lyrics are equally well written and help add to the albums ability to stand up to repeated listenings. The album as a whole is well textured with acoustic numbers sitting happily next to angry, noisy blasts. It's hard to pick out favourites, but "Pure", "This is My Hollywood", "Nuclear Holiday", "Sunny in England" and "Love's Cradle" are immediate stand-out tracks, although most of the songs on the album have been my personal favourite at various times. If you missed 3CR the first time round (and they weren't here too long) then just pick up this album, give it a listen and who knows, maybe you'll be as amazed as I was.

Why, oh why, oh why has this album not been given a 5* review yet? This is THE best album of all time and is 100% quality from the opening riff of 'Pure' through to the "if we weren't such a cross breed" end of the 14th track 'Aniseed'. This album has absolutely no fillers whatsoever (sorry alex). Explosive drum beats and powerful, catchy riffs are woven in throughout the album. Add Pete Vuckovic's excellent vocals and you have one of the best albums you will ever hear. It is also fantastic driving music - nothing beats cruising along the open road under a scorching sun with the album 'Pure' blasting out of the speakers. It is difficult to pick standout tracks because they are all so good. However, among the best are 'Pure', 'This is my Hollywood', 'Nuclear Holiday', 'Sunny in England'(which should be the national anthem), 'Fit Boy + Faint Girl' and 'Hateslick'. A MUST GET 5* album.

3 colours red are blast from the past for me. Another band I used to listen to during my teenage years, and what a band they were. As well as being fantastic live, they also cut a brilliant album like this! This is punk rock how it should be! Hard rocking, catchy and downright ridiculously good! As the opening momentum of 'pure' builds up into its final full on rush, and then 'this is my hollywood' unleashes its declaration of intent, this album is just bloody ruthless in its ability to give out the thrills. Just check out 'nuclear holiday', 'sixty mile smile', 'hate slick', 'alright ma!', 'nerve gas' or any of the other tracks! This album is for young punks sick of the self centered 'emu' scene and for older punks looking for something new, but no less rocking. Even if your not big on punk music, i am sure you will love the songs on this album for their sencerity and bloody good funness! (is that a word? don't know/care!)

With the imminent return of 3CR, now is an ideal time to get a copy of their debut album and find out exactly what made them great. Fans will recognise the first six (yes, six) tracks as singles, but be totally unprepared for the full-on punk pop anthem "Mental Blocks".
"Sunny in England" is equally rousing but the band are far from one-dimensional; the acoustic "Fit Boy and Faint Girl" may be mellow but is no less affecting.
Many fans listened to this album only after hearing "Beautiful Day", from "Revolt" but it deserves more. Releasing six singles was stretching it a little - "Copper Girl" is a fairly weak song - but almost any track could have been released in its own right.
It will certainly be interesting to see if 3 Colours Red can make an impact now given the more rock-friendly chart climate.

This album is a couple of years old now and the band themselves have split up,which is a great pity.What they did was not new, but a very refreshing return to a sound that had all but disappeared for several years. The sound is raw,heavy and very powerful.It's lead by two overdriven guitars and backed by heavy bass and drums in the best traditions of a good heavy/punk rock band.What gives 'Pure' a little bit extra is the excellent use of backing vocals and chord changes.Highlights are the tracks 'Pure','This is my hollywood','Nuclear holiday'and the ballard(ish)'Copper Girl'. The only reason this album wouldn't get 5 stars from me is that it's slightly bettered by the second album 'Revolt'. Although this will definately not be everybody's cuppa,real 'rockers'will love it-shame you have missed them live!
