Lovely (25th Anniversary) [Import] on CD

Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition. Back in the mid-80s, The Primitives combined the fuzz guitars of The Jesus & Mary Chain with the pop sensibilities of Blondie and a nod to cult heroes The Velvet Underground. They swiftly rose from being a popular Indie guitar outfit to charting worldwide with 'Crash', kickstarting a craze in bands fronted by blonde female singers (Transvision Vamp, The Darling Buds et al). Lovely was The Primitives' debut album. Issued in April 1988 on the back of the success of 'Crash', it peaked at #6 in the UK, staying on the charts for ten weeks. The Primitives' profile has not been as high since their heyday, what with the release of a new studio album Echoes And Rhymes in 2012 and Cherry Red's 2-CD compilation of the band's pre-RCA recordings, Everything's Shining Bright, which surfaced in March 2013. There then followed another studio album, Spin-O-Rama", in 2014. This expanded set boasts most of the band's b-sides and other rare tracks.
