• 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).

• Co-produced by Ian Broudie, Galore was The Primitives’ third and last album for RCA. Issued in 1991, the album was criminally ignored by a pop scene enamoured with Madchester and Grunge and has been long unavailable on CD. Despite its musical strength, fashions had moved on and The Prims disbanded in 1992.

• The Primitives’ profile has not been as high since their heyday, what with the release of a brand new studio album in October, Spin-O-Rama, which followed their reunion album Echoes And Rhymes (2012), as well as Cherry Red’s 2-CD compilation of the band’s pre-RCA recordings, Everything’s Shining Bright and a deluxe edition of Lovely.

• This 2-CD set boasts all of the band’s B-sides and other rare tracks from 1991/1992, including the  singles ‘You Are The Way’, ‘Lead Me Astray’ and ‘Earth Thing’ from the Spells EP. Also included is the ‘Re-Ravishing Mix’ of ‘You Are The Way’, previously available only on a promotional 12”.

• Compiled with the help of guitarist PJ Court, this 2-CD compilation boasts re-mastered music as well as a splendid, annotated booklet boasting rare photos and personal memories from the band.
