A Power Trio Never Sounded Better
For fans of Blur, Temples, Parquet Courts.
London-based Primitive Parts first practiced in 2012 after working together in a record shop in Crouch End with the goal to make something 'without fuss', that might sound like 'stiff records in the 60s'. They count The Deep Freeze Mice, Mick Jagger, and Swell Maps among their many influences. For fans of Blur, Temples, Parquet Courts.
“Brilliant this. Primitive Parts shake out spiky little songs like Weezer never happened.” - Shiny Shiny New
Parts Primitive is their debut album. The band consists of Sauna Youth, Monotony and Male Bonding alumni / hit-makers Lindsay Corstorphine (guitar / voice) Kevin Hendrick (guitar) and Robin Christian (drums).
“A grazing blast of sophisticated garage rock…
sitting somewhere between dingy bars, dust-lined concrete streets and the industrial space of their Hackney Wick practice room.” - DIY Mag
Parts Primitive Tracks and Videos
Live Video for Open Heads, TV Wheels
The album follows two sold-out singles on the SEXBEAT and Faux Discx labels, both of which received heavy air-play from BBC 6’s Marc Riley and Jenn Long and were acclaimed by critics including Stereogum and NME. The album is the band’s first for Trouble in Mind Records.
Parts Primitive was recorded by the band directly onto two 7″ reels of quarter inch tape, mixed by Mark Jasper at Soundsavers and mastered by Australian living-legend Mikey Young. The artwork makes a nod to 1970s photo books ‘British Image 1 and 2’ and Euan Duff’s ‘How We Are’, old council and library letter heads and the painfully thin paper picture sleeves of records by bands like Vain Aims and Protex.
Primitive Parts have shared stages w/ Twerps, Franz Ferdinand, The Homosexuals and Juan Wauters. Having recently bought a car, they plan to embark on a full UK tour in Autumn.
