The Primitives join the Indietracks bill
We’re excited to announce that The Primitives have now been added to the Indietracks 2010 line-up.
They will join New York headliners the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Love Is All, Ballboy, The Pooh Sticks, White Town, Allo Darlin’, Veronica Falls and dozens more indiepop bands at this year’s event. The festival takes place on 23-25 July 2010 on a steam railway in Derbyshire.
The Primitives emerged from the independent scene of the mid-80s, alongside The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream and My Bloody Valentine. With the distinctive singing and blonde bombshell looks of singer Tracy Tracy, they combine 60s melodies, the buzzsaw guitars of the Ramones and the pop sensibilities of Orange Juice. The band became household names across the world for their hit single ‘Crash’, which made the top five in the UK charts.
The band reunited at the end of 2009 and have played some ace UK shows recently. We can’t wait to see them at the festival!
