The Primitives - Southampton, Joiners - 17th April 2010


So it's the one you've all been waiting for. Possibly an overstatement but I'm certainly excited about seeing The Primitives this week. This was their first gig of their 2010 tour and their first gig since the dark ages when only toffs had mobile phones and the internet was something fishermen used in the North Sea to catch cod (probably) but the fact is it's been a long time and the problem with comebacks is that you want them to be as good as they used to be and if they aren't it's all a bit of a let down. So I was a bit worried about this one, as I was about My Bloody Valentine last year but listening to this recording has put all those fears to bed and I can look forward to Wednesday. 
Thanks as ever to the bloke who recorded this, fine job.

    seems corrupt, any chance it could be uploaded on its own, no chance to see tehm in boston so this is great.

  3. Sorry about that. I've re-upped the whole thing and it should be ok this time.

  4. They did actually play the Buffalo Bar last year

    Saw them last night in Manchester at Moho Bar , couldn't believe how good Tracy looked , not aged a day in 20 years since last time i saw them. Excellent set , similar to the Southampton one listed. Good turnout aswell.
