The Primitives have been invited to guest edit MAGNET this week, so we thought we’d spin right back through memory, as the line from the title track of our new album, Spin-O-Rama, goes (how’s that for a clever bit of crowbarring?), and revisit some music-related experiences from our childhood, youth and early days of the band. There’s also some other random stuff to do with the world of the Primitives. It’s been a pleasure putting all this together, as there wouldn’t normally be any reason to relay any of this stuff. So thanks MAGNET, we’re enjoying the delve.
The Primitives: We dropped in on ex-Smiths member Mike Joyce in Manchester in 2011 while on tour, and played three songs live on his radio show: “Rattle My Cage,” “Crash” and “Dreamwalk Baby.” Check them out here.
