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.
Tracy: I met Jeff Buckley backstage after a gig he did in Birmingham in 1995. He was very welcoming and friendly, and he signed my ticket and copy of Grace. He commented on my Aubrey Beardsley design tattoo and asked if I liked the show and then gave me a kiss on the cheek. That night, I broke my rule of never going to bed with my make-up on. I just didn’t want to wash that kiss off.
