••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

We’ve been talking about it for a while now, and actually, we’ve even been able to get a little taste with the two advance singles, but now it is really happening: THE PRIMITIVES have a new album, and this time, it’s completely new material, which they’ve been letting us in on bit by bit. Time hasn’t passed for this group, whose sound is just as fresh as ever and whose contagious melodies take us back to the end of the eighties, beginning of the nineties, when they released such renowned albums as “Lovely”, “Pure”, and “Galore”.

“Spin-O-Rama” was one of the songs they gave us a preview of with the limited-edition 7” single. It has a perfect arpeggio suggestive of classic THE STONE ROSES, an infectious verse that sounds like a playground song set to BOBBY FULLER FOUR rhythm track, and Tracy Tracy giving us a marvelous, soaring chorus over a wall of snarling guitar. “Hidden In The Shadows” is a high-voltage Brit-pop punker along the lines of THE BUZZCOCKS and GENERATION X. “Wednesday World” continues in the English tradition, but this time focused in the psychedelic pop of the sixties, somewhere between Billy Nichols and THE KINKS, letting aromas of LOVE come through every now and then, with those prodigious bass lines, and the trot of the drums. “Follow The Sun Down” keeps us in the same period, but this time with a more twangy rhythm ‘n blues line, with hints of Nancy Sinatra and THE CREATION, plus a hypnotic and addictive riff that perfectly recreates the ambiance of the time. “Purifying Tone” establishes a new connection between the two periods, with Paul Court reminding us of the dreamier side of THE VELVET UNDERGROUND or THE STONE ROSES’ first songs. The chorus takes us to the sky and back with those delicious harmonies and that wavering tremolo that gives an outer-spacey touch to a far out song.

“Lose The Reason” was the other song we got to hear in advance, again at full-throttle, with Paul and Tracy having a magical vocal duel that settles into another unforgettable chorus. “Petals” unleashes their most pop-punk spirit, bringing them close to those bands from the C86 movement we love so much, like THE SHOP ASSISTANTS and our wonderful TALULAH GOSH. “Working Isn’t Working” is a new return to the sixties through fuzzified folk, but with that pop innocence so typical of a band like THE MAGNETIC FIELDS. It is a continuous dialogue between two periods in which the melodies were crucial, when they made a song, but without pushing the electricity or intensity aside. “Velvet Valley” is a sweet moment, a curiosity without lyrics. With the insistence of the structure and crunchy guitar it may very well be a small homage to Lou Reed. The constant noise, and that incomparable attention to the most exquisite melodies give this track the feeling of a fuzz drenched HOLLIES. “Dandelion Seed” floats close to THE CHARLATANS and TEENAGE FANCLUB. Its powerful bass line and rabid guitar bringing us near to the end of the ride with a spirited slab of chiming psychedelic pop.

It is an urgent album, and it goes by in a heartbeat, putting us in “the-album-you-want-to-listen-to-again-as-soon-as-it-ends” situation, and getting the songs stuck in our head for months. THE PRIMITIVES in full form.

Track Name: Spin-O-Rama
Spin spin circling
Let's go round again
Turn turn to unlearn
The things we need not know

Grown so fast nothing lasts
Let's go round again
Take a ride by my side
Hold on tight let's go

Come on climb aboard with me
And we'll spin right back through memory
In the corners of our minds
The childhood dreams we try to find
Reverse the ride
Follow me round

Spin spin circling
Let's go round again
Turn turn to unlearn
The things we need not know

Reel around
Lost is found
Let's go round again
Take a ride by my side
Hold on tight let's go

Come on climb aboard with me
And we'll spin right back through memory
In the corners of our minds
The childhood dreams we try to find
Reverse the ride
Follow me round

Take a ride by my side
Let's go round again

Come on climb aboard with me
And we'll spin right back through memory
In the corners of our minds
The childhood dreams we try to find
Reverse the ride
Follow me round
Track Name: Hidden In The Shadows
Promised you sunshine you'll get rain
Paint you a smile but what's to gain?
Nothing of worth it's all so mundane
Said that it's new but it's just the same

Tricked by a trend fooled by a fad
Fairytale lies we've all been had
Hidden in the shadows
Better things to know
Under that rock or stone
Find a truth of your own
Tricked by a trend fooled by a fad
Fairytale lies we've all been had

Hand you the world on an empty plate
Getting a fix of something fake
Pretend that it's love but it's really hate
Plenty to give but it's take take take

Tricked by a trend fooled by a fad
Fairytale lies we've all been had
Hidden in the shadows
Better things to know
Under that rock or stone
Find a truth of your own
Tricked by a trend fooled by a fad
Fairytale lies we've all been had

Promised you sunshine you'll get rain
Paint you a smile but what's to gain?
Nothing of worth it's all so mundane
Said that it's new but it's just the same

Tricked by a trend fooled by a fad
Fairytale lies we've all been had
Hidden in the shadows
Better things to know
Under that rock or stone
Find a truth of your own
Find a truth of your own

Find a truth of your own
Hidden in the shadows
Track Name: Wednesday World
Wednesday world seems fine to me
Safe in dull serenity
Far from joy but free from pain
Feeling nothing in the rain

Wednesday world no danger there
Midway point to don't know where
Far from joy but free from pain
Feeling nothing in the rain

Wednesday world wish I could stay
No hard edge to the middle day
Far from joy but free from pain
Feeling nothing in the rain
Track Name: Follow The Sun Down
You tried to break into my heart in the belief that I would surely surrender
Think you can storm into my life and take control and tear my world asunder

Well here's a kiss
Be careful what you wish
Follow the sun down

If I had love then love I'd give but inside this heart it's as dark as midnight
If you believe you're what I need then come with me into the shadows of twilight

Another kiss
Be careful what you wish
Follow the sun down

I know a place above the sea where we can walk and no one else will wander
And in that fading hour I'll hold you close just one last time before you go under

A farewell kiss
Be careful what you wish
Follow the sun down
Track Name: Purifying Tone
I've found a sound that will block you out
That will lock you out of my mind

Just turn the dial
Find the frequency
Set the tone
And I'll be just fine

I won't think of you at all

I've found a sound that will crush you
That will flush you out of my mind

I just turn the dial
Find the frequency
Set the tone
Then everything's fine

And I won't think of you at all
I won't think of you at all
Track Name: Lose The Reason
What will we do come tomorrow?
It will happen anyway
Still some time that we could borrow
Not enough to last a day
So this fire is growing dimmer
So this flame is growing small
Sift the ashes find a glimmer
Nothing glowing here at all

How did we lose the reason
Where has it gone?
What happened to the season in the sun?
How did we lose the reason
Where has it gone?
What happened to the season?
In the sun
In the sun
In the sun

What will we do come tomorrow?
It will happen anyway
No more hopes or dreams to follow
Nothing left just walk away
So this fire is growing dimmer
So this flame is growing small
Sift the ashes find a glimmer
Nothing glowing here at all

How did we lose the reason
Where has it gone?
What happened to the season in the sun?
How did we lose the reason
Where has it gone?
What happened to the season
In the sun
In the sun
In the sun
Track Name: Petals
Sun comes up - all my dreams are wasted
Lift my head from the flower bed
My lips still sweet from the things I've tasted
I wish that I could get you outta my head

A heart not broken won't need mending
Nothing gained so nothing lost
But could a flower foretell the ending?
Well I won't pick those petals off

Spent more time than I care to mention
Trying to get me some of your attention
But you just kept on stopping to smell the flowers
It could be that you're just plain lazy
Or you want a rose but I am just a daisy
Well I don't really want to be a flower

A heart not broken won't need mending
Nothing gained so nothing lost
But could a flower foretell the ending?
Well I won't pick those petals off

Sun goes down and my dreams are waiting
Lay my head on the flower bed
Can't help wondering what could have been
I wish that I could get you outta my head

Spent more time than I care to mention
Trying to get me some of your attention
But you just kept on stopping to smell the flowers
It could be that you're just plain lazy
Or you want a rose but I am just a daisy
Well I don't really want to be a flower

A heart not broken won't need mending
Nothing gained so nothing lost
But could a flower foretell the ending?
Well I won't pick those petals off
Track Name: Working Isn't Working
Tried it once for a little while
It wasn't really me it just cramped my style
So I clocked out

I wasn't made for lifting things or digging up the ground
I never want to follow orders or to knuckle down
I wasn't born to stand in line I like to sit around
Sit around

Working isn't working for me

Can't give up my precious time
For something I hate I won't toe the line
So I'm clocking out

I wasn't made for lifting things or digging up the ground
I never want to follow orders or to knuckle down
I wasn't born to stand in line I like to sit around
Sit around

Working isn't working for me

I wasn't made for lifting things or digging up the ground
I never want to follow orders or to knuckle down
I wasn't born to stand in line I like to sit around
Sit around

Working isn't working for me

I just want to sit here doing nothing
Track Name: Velvet Valley
Instrumental
Track Name: Dandelion Seed
Dandelion seed
Carried on the breeze
Float into the sky
Where will you stray?
Which path which way?
Will you fall or fly?

Close your eyes and you're in the clouds
Drift away from yesterday's crowd

Dandelion seed
To this world you're freed
Boundless and untied
Where will you stray?
Which path which way?
Will you drop or glide?

Close your eyes and you're in the clouds
Drift away from yesterday's crowd

Dandelion seed
Carried on the breeze
Dandelion seed
To this world you're freed

Close your eyes and you're in the clouds
Drift away from yesterday's crowd
Track Name: Let's Go 'Round Again
Let's go 'round again
