Primrods - Encourage Citizen Advocacy plus three more plus two others also (1994)

Primrods - Encourage Citizen Advocacy plus three more plus two others also

We were just trying to figure out why we have so much Primrods in our collection. It's at the point where it's getting out of hand - we just digitized the amazing, amazing Wagbeard/Primrods split 10", plus this tape, and we already have the songs on the aforementioned Shit Side Story. We're asking, do we really need six copies of "Barbet Lad" in iTunes? (YES!)

Why do we love the Primrods so much? Here are five reasons:
1. We didn't love them enough in life. In fact, we didn't like them at all the first time we saw them.
2. "Santa Lucia": "My orange key like an olive branch opens up the locker door."
3. The title of this tape.
4. The artwork on their first tape.
5. The showed up for a photoshoot with vintage GI Joe dolls, and demanded that the dolls be photographed, not them.

What more do you need?

The Primrods are the s**t, and we are merely the flies that beat about it.
