Sound Hole + Live at the Rex
Two CD release. The Boutique Label presents Sound Hole, the second album by cult garage rock band The Primevals, originally released in 1986. Now remastered with six bonus tracks as well as new artwork, the double disc package also includes a bonus live CD recorded live at the Rex Club in Paris in 1988. Sound Hole was produced by Richard Mazda (Fleshtones, Scientists). Stand out tracks include 'Spiritual', 'Lowdown' and 'Prairie Chain'. "One of our best albums for sure," says frontman Michael Rooney. "The songs were strong and several peaks were hit. There's some kind of chaotic thread which linked the reality of 1980s Glasgow with a mess of far flung ideas and emotions. We definitely punched the anxiety button on Sound Hole." Newly remastered in 2015, Disc One features 67 minutes of music. Bonus tracks include single b-sides and a radio session from late 1985. Disc Two features a blistering live performance (18 tracks) from the Rex Club in Paris on 13 April 1988, highlights from which were issued as a vinyl-only album Neon Oven. This is the first time the complete show has been made available.
