Back in the mid-80s, 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 swiftly rose from being a popular Indie guitar outfit to charting worldwide with "Crash”, kickstarting a craze in bands fronted by blonde female singers (Transvision Vamp, The Darling Buds et al).
Between 1985 and 1987, the band issued five singles/EP’s on independent label Lazy Records (also home to My Bloody Valentine and later Birdland) before signing with RCA.
Everything’s Shining Bright is named after their planned Lazy Records album, which was abandoned when the band left the label – indeed, seven of the ten previously unissued tracks here stem from those scotched LP sessions. Also unearthed is the band’s very first demo from 1985, consisting of three tracks including a dry-run through their eventual hit "Crash”.
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.
Those Lazy singles in full:
Thru The Flowers (May 1986) Indie No.20
Really Stupid (October 1986) Indie No.3
Stop Killing Me (February 1987) Indie No.2
Thru The Flowers (New Version - August 1987) Indie No.3
Ocean Blue (gig freebie 7”)
Compiled with guitarist PJ Court, this 2-CD compilation boasts re-mastered music as well as a beautifully annotated booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from the band.

Release Date: 25/03/2013

The Circle And The Square
Released 20/10/08. The Circle And The Square was originally released in 1986 and has become one of the most requested reissues, even with an online petition launched to see it released. 2nd hand copies exchange hands for approximately £200.

This reissue features four of the band's best known singles including their two top 10 hits ‘Lean On Me' number 3 in '85 and ‘For America' number 10 in '86.The CD booklet features a UK discography and various sleeve notes including a written contribution by lead vocalist Simon Toulson-Clarke. The CD includes 6 bonus tracks, the band's original Cherry Red single ‘Chenko/Valley' and all of the b/sides from the singles listed above. The b/sides are appearing on CD for the first time. Red Box came to the attention of the world with their debut single "Chenko" on Cherry Red Records in 1983.

The band soon signed to WEA Records and the band hit the upper reaches of the charts with their 2nd single ‘Lean On Me'. The band enjoyed further single chart success and released two albums, 'The Circle & The Square' and 'Motive'. Red Box should've enjoyed lasting success but the band's output stopped there until the re-recorded version of ‘Lean On Me' was made available through iTunes by the band in 2007. The band's influence is still evident today with many fan websites created to celebrate the band's music.

Oil And Gold
Released 15/08/11. Oil & Gold, the third full-length Shriekback
album, is widely considered the band's best. Released in 1985 on Island
Records, Oil & Gold saw the band metamorphose from contemplative to
rocking. The addition of Martyn Barker on drums and Lu Edmonds (Ex
Damned) on guitar gives many of the songs an almost punk rock feeling.Oil
& Gold is the bridge between the old trio of Barry Andrews, Carl
Marsh, and Dave Allen, and the new vehicle for Andrews alone. Longtime
singer Marsh left the band halfway through the recording, leaving
Andrews to take over the vocals, the album's highlights, including the
three opening songs, sung by Marsh, and the hit, Nemesis, became the
band's signature sound.This enhanced edition comes with a newly
remastered bonus disc for B-Sides - some never before released on CD -
as well as a enhanced booklet with new notes

On The Hot Dog Streets CD Edition
Here it is at last… The long awaited third album from Go-Kart Mozart. The band formed by Lawrence (ex Felt & Denim).

West Midlands are proud to announce that Go-Kart Mozart are "On The Hot Dog Streets”: A double-album for your delectation and contains all the trademarks of an innovative release. It will be issued on CD, LP and digital formats.

As well as an extensive mail-out from the Cherry Red office to all the main music magazines and broadsheets, the new album will be actively promoted by our estimable radio plugger.

Remember – get dirt on your needle with West Midland Records…

Advertisements for my band – "Go-Kart Mozart have offered us their contempt. The entire album is a rag bag of contemptuous attitudes. Contempt for art – contempt for sex – contempt for their country and most especially contempt for the audience that might be listening. All this, it must be said, is not perceived through a tin ear or a dim mind, but through a widescreen composition of what ails us most, while we are lost in our fallacies displaying an acute distaste, we are forced to finally see our own reflection and scream back at it in abject terror…”

LP VERSION AVAILABLE HERE!

"On The Hot Dog Streets features Lawrence’s dour humour and melodic skills on 17 songs of such perfect wit and economy, you wish there were 17 more”
– Will Hodgkinson, The Times, 22/6/2012

"Whatever you make of it, you’d have a hard time arguing On The Hot Dog Streets is anything other than unique: the sound of a man pursuing a singular uncompromising artistic vision, as he has been doing for the last 30 years. You might call it inspirational after all.”
4 Stars – Alexis Petridis, The Guardian, 22/6/2012

"Lawrence Hayward, former leader of Felt and Denim, is one of underground pop’s true eccentrics.”
4/5 - The Independent on Sunday, 24/6/2012

"Lawrence’s pop vision extends to sleeve notes featuring a reading list and even a lonely-hearts ad. It all makes this a perfect album.”
5/5 – Will Hodkinson, The Times Saturday Review, 23/6/2012
