THE PRIMITIVES
Fronted by indiepop blonde bombshell Tracy Tracy, The Primitives emerged from the independent scene of the mid-80s that spawned The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, The Wedding Present and Primal Scream. Their sound distilled the shimmering guitar jangle of the Byrds, the buzzsaw style of The Ramones and 60's girl group melodies into two and a half minute pop gems. Regular session guests on John Peel’s radio show, with many an appearance in his Festive Fifty, their career was boosted / hindered when Morrissey named them as one of his favourite bands. The band were reunited in 2009 by the untimely passing of their original bass player Steve Dullaghan, reforming to play a show in his memory later that year in their home town of Coventry; their first show together for 17 years. Bolstered by its success they went on to tour the UK in April 2010, receiving a rapturous response, followed by a headline slot at the Indietracks festival, shows in the US and Spain, and an EP of new material released on Fortuna POP! last year. Look out for their new album of obscure sixties girl covers coming soon on Elefant Records.
“They certainly don't sound like croaky old fiends: The Primitives comeback EP is a gloriously carefree affair, delivered with panache and restraint.” (Artrocker)

CINEMA RED & BLUE
Cinema Red And Blue is a transatlantic pop music collaboration between members of Crystal Stilts and Comet Gain, produced by Gary Olson (Ladybug Transistor). Their self-titled debut album on What's Your Rupture? featured heavy rec-room vibes, lotsa booze, lots to do and little time to do it - a supersesh with a host of David Feck originals and a bunch of covers (The Chills, Julian Cope, Vic Godard, etc), assembled in the belief that something good can come from the stored memories and shared experiences of friends who play music. Look out for their upcoming "Walkin' In The Cemetery" Halloween EP on Fortuna POP!
"Members of The Clean, The Aislers Set, and The Ladybug Transistor all pop by at various points, and the music shimmers and jangles with all the requisite bittersweet colors... a knowing and affecting power-pop record about the foibles of loving records too much." (Pitchfork)

BEARSUIT
Bearsuit are a boy/girl five-piece from Norwich who were also favourites of the late John Peel. Known for their electric and outlandish performances, especially their many and varied onstage outfits, from blood covered zombies to majorettes, Bearsuit have supported the likes of Crystal Castles, Future of the Left, Lightspeed Champion and Hot Chip. Their latest album on Fortuna POP! “The Phantom Forest” features their new edgy sound of dirty synths and fierce guitars and was recorded with Gareth Parton - producer to the Go Team!, Foals, The Breeders, Pink Grease and Pete and the Pirates. New single “Princess, You’re a Test” is out now.
"Sleazy synth-pop jabbing a finger in the direction of Of Montreal with the odd nuance of Le Tigre. A riotous, beat-laden, dance floor-filling affair" Rocksound
http://www.bearsuit.co.uk

MONNONE ALONE (EX THE LUCKSMITHS)
Monnone Alone is Mark Monnone with an assorted cast of friends, buddies, pals, cronies, deadbeats, etc. As bass-player-about town, Mark is a regular casanova, musically seducing the likes of Sally Seltmann, Darren Hanlon, Bart & Friends, Guy Blackman, amongst other lucky sods. However, between the years of 1993 and 2009 inclusive, Mark was best known as the bass player for The Lucksmiths and was responsible for penning such familiar favourites as T-Shirt Weather, Myopic Friends and Take This Lying Down. The debut Monnone Alone single Pink Earrings is out now, with a follow-up single, Echoing Days, recorded by Gary Olson in Brooklyn and featuring Linton (The Aislers Set) on drums, coming soon.
"Mark Monnone could make this a full-time job should he want to such is his charisma, smart lyricism and the warm reception he receives. His effortlessness on stage and total unpretentiousness is an endlessly rewarding experience." (interviewsandgigreviews)

Hoping to have copies of Cinema Red & Blue's debut release for Fortuna POP! in time for this show. It's a 4-track 10" called the Butterbean Crypt EP. Two David Feck originals and two covers. Gonna make it on spooky coloured vinyl too!

Are these songs that aren't on the album? And what is spooky coloured vinyl? :)

I really hope to make this night of any of them though I'm doing two showcases for work at night that week and one is tentatively scheduled for November 1st. Argh.
There's more than one use for every part

Yeah, songs that weren't on the album. They were recorded last October after the album session. If you really want to know...

"The Butterbean Crypt EP is a special Halloween release from Cinema Red and Blue, an indiepop supergroup featuring members of both Comet Gain and Crystal Stilts. Strictly limited to 500 copies on 10” vinyl, it’s pressed on spooky black vinyl with a white marble effect. Lead track Walkin’ To The Cemetery is a Cinema Red & Blue original that comes on like a Nuggets garage original, replete with 60s organ and scary screams. The EP also contains two covers, with versions of Beau Brummels’ psych-pop classic Gentle Wandering Ways and the sixties folk obscurity As Pure As The Freshly Driven Snow by Whistler Chaucer Detroit & Greenhill. The EP is rounded off another original Memory Grave (Recalled From The Crypt)."

I can't wait to see them play!

Linton from the Aislers Set emailed me this morning asking if there was any particular songs I'd like to hear them play. "The Walk" is my favourite ever Aislers song, but maybe not a great one to play live. I love "The Red Door" and "Been Hiding" off that record too, and "Long Division" and "Mission Bells". Anyone got any other requests?

all your requests are solid (they have to play "been hiding". the dan treacy line might be rather poignant but this'll be the first time that the plea to tracy tracy stands a chance of being answered. she can come on & hit a cowbell or something), i'd add "languor in the balcony", "attraction action reaction" & "emotional levy".

Dear Mr President, please request, on behalf of the Bath Indiepop Association (i.e. me) that they play any or all of the following :
The Red Door
My Boyfriend (Could Be A Spanish Man)
Langour In The Balcony
California
The Way To Market Station

That would just be head-explodingly exciting. Thanks :)

Another vote for most of those mentioned so far, also a shout for 'Hit The Snow', if that's not tempting ill-weather fate.

Will this evening therefore be:

- Bands
- DJs at Scala
- DJs at Lexington?

Do you know what time the live Music finishes at the Scala, when Track and Field DJing finishes?

Am assuming music at the Lexington could be into the small hours - is that right?

Paul Track & Field is DJ between the bands at the Scala. Music finishes there at 11pm, after which I hope everyone comes to the Lexington where Stolen Wine Social will be DJing until we get chucked out.

So very excited about the Aislers Set tomorrow!! Apparently they have six songs prepared, although I don't know if there will be time for them to play all of them. I'll do what I can.

Sean, I'm becoming a baby abandoner to go to this. You'd better let them play all the songs.

Also: Eeeeee!

well, that was pretty great!

sean, i'm sure you're a little snowed under this week, but please could you post when you've uploaded the cinema red & blue mp3s -- bought the 10" (which is, as expected, excellent) but on attempting to download the songs from dropcards got an error message saying they don't have the files yet.
