Title - 'Everything's Shining Bright The Lazy Recordings'
Artist - The Primitives

Let me just say this from the off: this is a great package of music. Spread over 2 discs, my favorite track (at the moment, I guess) is 'We Found A Way To The Sun,' which I was previously unfamiliar with; and which I find quite beautiful.

Anyway, moving on and back in the mid-80s, the highly-underrated The Primitives combined the fuzz guitars of The Jesus & Mary Chain with the pop sensibilities of Blondie and a nod to cult heroes The Velvet Underground. They quickly stormed the charts, looking as surprised as we were to see them on TOTP with the soon-to-be worldwide hit 'Crash,' and then rode that wave for as loing as it would let them (in truth).

In much the same vein as other bands fronted by blonde female singers - Transvision Vamp, The Darling Buds, etc. - this "new" album from them (Everything’s Shining Bright) is actually nothing of the kind! It was really named after their planned Lazy Records album, which was abandoned when the band left the label! Actually, if you really wish to know, seven of the ten previously unissued tracks here stem from those abandoned LP sessions!

Again, one of the most underrated bands of this era, their only crime was to have a major hit single! This 2-CD set also boasts their promo-only live album at the ICA; as such, it offers their entire Lazy output from that period.

Don't Want Anything To Change; 18. Across My Shoulder; 19. Everything's Shining Bright; 20. Buzz Buzz Buzz; 21. Stop Killing Me and 22. I Wanna Be Your Dog.
