ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ORANGE COUNTY'S PRIMITIVE PAINTERS RETURN, RELEASE NEW EP

Fullerton, Calif., July 29, 2004 - After a seven-year hiatus, Orange County's Primitive Painters is back in top form with a six-song CD titled EP33. In this offering the Painters mix slower, lush songs with spirited rockers to bring a sound akin to U2 and The Smiths.

Upon signing with English independent GT's Records in 1992, Primitive Painters stormed the scene with its full-length debut Dirtclods. Based in Garden Grove, Calif., the band amassed a respectable college following and stacks of favorable press. Between extensive U.S. tours and support slots for international acts - including The Wonder Stuff, Dramarama, Jonathan Richman, The Soup Dragons, Hoodoo Gurus and Modern English - the Painters recorded several post-Dirtclods demos on prospective labels' tabs. But the right offer never came, and, in 1997, the band called it a day.

A new day dawned in the fall of 2002, when founding members Dennis Crupi (vocals) and Patrick Homa (bassist-turned-guitarist) reunited to write new material. In June 2003, the OC Weekly included Primitive Painters in its "129 Greatest OC Bands Ever!" article (Vol. 8 No. 42 June 20-27, 2003) and announced the band had reformed. Crupi and Homa, along with Chad Patchen (drums) and a strong cast of supporting musicians, have answered with EP33.

EP33 is out on Keeper Records, in conjunction with Earthling Records. A full press and independent radio campaign is imminent. Local club dates, in-store appearances, and regional tour information to follow.

Wow
This album has a way of flashing me back to my youth. Infectious licks, introspective lyrics and most of all, non-invasive. It's been a staple in my regular CD rotation since I've had it. When I feel like I need a love song, I play Decline. When I need a little pick me up before the night begins..Unsub, baby. Thanks guys! Good to have you back in action and keep it coming. Can't wait to see you play live again. I'll be the one frothing at the mouth.

This EP will have you begging for more.
This EP makes you long for a full-length album. The tunes are incredibly catchy and the lyrics make you think. If forced to pick favorites, I would choose Thirty-Three and Shoulda. Very cool to have the lyrics in the liner notes. Once you listen to this EP you will be begging for more - please guys, more music, soon!
