Album Notes
The Primate Five -1-2-3-4-5-6-7-APE!

An entire rock & roll party crammed into a 22 minute CD! This is fun stuff! 12 songs mixing surf, garage, and beat, overflowing with upbeat fun energy. If you know and like the Young Fresh Fellows, especially their songs "Taco Wagon," "99 Girls," "Monkey See Monkey Do," or any of their other garage-beat songs, you will absolutely love The Primate Five. I added this CD to my iPod, and every now and then one of the songs will come up ("Poprox & Koke," "Speed Boat," and their cover of The Sonics' "Leave My Kitten Alone"), I'll have to check to see which Young Fresh Fellows album it's from, only to find out its The Primate Five. If you still don't know what that sounds like, imagine one of those cool, rockin' combos in '60s drive-in movies, but with more balls. The drummer is bashin', the guitars are thrashin', and the organ keeps everything drivin'. I can't recommend this enough. -

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-Ape!: CD
I really like Go Metric! zine and I’ve found that my tastes in music and Go Metric! editor Mike Faloon’s taste in music is very, very similar. On top of that, Mike has taken it upon himself to allegedly put out the missing Weird Lovemakers album (I say allegedly because everything that has anything to do with the Weird Lovemakers is alleged at this point), and that’s my all-time favorite missing album. So it would just make sense that I’d go ape (get it?) over The Primate 5. They play a mix of surf and garage music – garage like ‘60s throwback rock’n’roll, not garage like The Hives, which is really just ‘90s style rock’n’roll – that sometimes has vocals (which are a good touch) and sometimes has lyrics (which are generally funny, especially in “Greenwood House of Mystery” and “Drinkin’ Bird”), but the music in and of itself is enough to keep this album interesting. This CD also comes with a pretty big insert about the band, but I lost the insert before I could read it, so, as a reviewer, I’m left with only the music to comment on. The songs are organ backed and bounce like something out of a Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello movie. Or not exactly like that, but like I always imagined a remake of those old Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello movies would be like if they had real surfers and real greasers and punk rockers in them. I’ve spent a lot of time stoned, watching those old movies. Well, okay, I spent two hours stoned one time, watching one of those old movies, but it was a vivid two hours and I came up with the perfect remake movie in my head, and now I know that The Primate 5 would be the perfect band to play it. If that makes any sense to anyone. –Sean Carswell
