Blonds have more fun...
on 26 June 2003
This best of is fantastic - a marvellous way to introduce yourself to one of the best indie bands of the 80s - The Primitives. Just forget any one hit wonder tags, because they had plenty more pop sensibilities about them aside form 'Crash' and I'm at a loss as to why they didnt rack up any more top 10 hits! Just check out the excellent 'Way Behind Me' or the sunshine-soaked 'Secrets' and you'll see what I mean... I'm tempted to knock off a star for the lack of what I consider their BEST EVER track, 'Really Stupid', but I love them, and miss them, so much I really can't bring myself to do it! There were many blond bands in the late 80s indie swamp (The Darling Buds, Transvision Vamp, Voice Of The Beehive, etc.) but The Primitives are my favourite. Buy this CD, it's cheap, there isn't a duff track on it and I guarentee you'll want to check out their original albums... All together now... "na-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na-naaaa... slow down, you're gonna crash!".
