SBD presents


Sunday June 30th

The Primevals started in 1983; Michael Rooney had a record stall and had some friends who played in bands. They soon recorded their first single Where Are You? on the local Raucous label .New Rose Records in Paris, then released ‘Eternal Hotfire’ mini lp in 1984 and their relationship continued over the next three years releasing the albums ‘Sound Hole’ and ‘Live a Little’. These records were produced by Richard Mazda who had also worked with the Scientists and the Fleshtones.

The Primevals toured extensively in Europe over this period and played some great shows with the Cramps on their ‘Date with Elvis’ tour in 1986. Next was a live album ‘Neon Oven’ recorded 1988 in Paris album. Over this period The Primevals recorded 5 sessions for BBC Radio 1 including a John Peel session which was released on 12” single they also recorded tribute covers for various compilation releases dedicated to Captain Beefheart, Suicide and The Byrds. The fifth album is called ‘Dig’ and was released in 1990. The band worked with Jack Endino on this who had worked with Mudhoney and Nirvana.. The band toured extensively in Germany soon after and then ceased to play live between 1992-1996. Each member spent the time on other musical endeavours.

The Primevals began playing under their name again occasionally and in 2005 a 2cd compilation of New Rose material plus 4 unreleased songs entitled ‘On the Red Eye’ was released. New recordings in 2007 came next on cd on their own Triple Wide imprint entitled ‘There Is No Other Life…And This Is It”. The Primevals released ‘Disinhibitor” 2010.and toured extensively again. They released the lp ‘Heavy War’ in 2012 on Beast Records and a split 45 from the Jeffrey Lee Pierce Sessions entitled ‘Girl It’s Me” the following year.

In 2014 they released ‘Tales of Endless Bliss’ on Closer Records. In 2015 saw the the enhanced re-issues of ‘Eternal Hotfire’ and ‘Sound Hole ‘on cd on LTM record label.

In July 2017 The Primevals released on their own label ‘Dislocation’ on lp/cd and continued with shows in UK, France and Italy. An ep on ‘Ghost Highway Recordings’ from Madrid entitled ‘So Extra’ ep. Was released in July 2018

The lp ‘Second Nature’ was released in May 2020 on their own Triple Wide label. 12 track vinyl and 16 track cd. Their song “Spiritual” was used for the Sky series “Tin Star” in 2020. The band have released a new record ’New Trip’ on cd/lp on Triple Wide released July 2021 with some great reviews in Shindig and Vive le Rock.





Support from


The Hurricanes are a loud Garage band, bringing the sound of ’66 to now! Fusing Power Pop, 60s Garage, Mod Revival and Boss British Beat, these four gents have been around the block, starting out playing covers as their forefathers did, inevitably leading them on to writing, recording and performing their very own material.

Since self-releasing their debut album ‘Let’s Go!’ in 2018, The Hurricanes have since released the pounding single ‘Look Out! / Shake It!’ (2019) and second album ‘Look Out! It’s The Hurricanes’ (during the lockdown of 2020), and single ‘Keep On Pushing…’ on Spinout Nuggets, all receiving much interest and speaker bounce throughout. The band have played on many stages throughout the land, including the Purple Weekend in Spain in 2022. 

Although this new album ‘Here Comes The Storm’ sees the band feature guests on brass, additional keyboards, and vocals, like their previous releases these recordings were all engineered, recorded, and mixed by the band themselves who are always keen to keep a firm DIY ethic. With 11 tracks on the vinyl format, and an additional 3 tracks from the same sessions on the CD, these are the band’s most consistently strong set of songs yet. 






In ya face cheese Disco Glam punk!
