Four recordings from 1968. These tracks serve as a template for the post-psychedelic Soft Machine's career as founders of European jazz/rock and the entire release is a precursor to Robert Wyatt's post-band, solo career.
Primitives, The Echoes And Rhymes
Elefant CD ER1163 8428846211633 30 Apr 12
THE PRIMITIVES return after too long away with this very cool collection of choice covers of 60s Femme Obscuros. From garage to psychedelia, with touches of soul and sunshine pop, these songs are revisited & revamped with love and affection.
The PRIMITIVES reunited in Coventry, their hometown, at the end of 2009 to pay homage to Steve Dullighan, their original bassist who had recently passed away, and the success of that show and the audience's great response to it after the band's 17-year absence from the stage led them to tour the UK in April, 2010 (where they headlined at the Indietracks Festival) and to play some shows in Europe and the USA, passing through Spain where they were big-names in the Contempopranea and the Lemon Pop festivals. " Echoes And Rhymes" is a concept covers album, on which they revisit songs from semi-obscure bands from the 60s with women lead singers. The album has psychedelia, distortion, soul, extravagances, sunshine pop and many more surprises.
