The Cure – Primary (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 31st July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1981

“Primary” is a song by English rock band The Cure, released as the sole single from their third studio album Faith (1981).

The song is unusual in that both Simon Gallup and Robert Smith play bass, with the effects pedals on Smith’s giving the leads a unique sound. There are no guitars or keyboards played in the song.

“Primary” was released as a single on March 20, 1981. It reached number 43 in the UK Singles Chart.

“Primary” was the first song by The Cure to be remixed as a separate extended mix for release on 12″ single (and not co-released on other formats, in the way the 12″ version of “A Forest” was also the album version appearing on Seventeen Seconds, for example). In fact, the original 12″ extended mix is, to this day, still only available on the original 12″ single, which has never been reproduced on any other album, making it quite a rare item. The main difference between the 7″ mix (also the album mix) and the 12″ mix is that the extended mix lengthens the instrumental introductions to the song’s verses.

This cover art is the first visual collaboration between the band & Porl and Undy, later better known as Parched Art.

SIDE A:
Primary (Extended Mix) 5:57

SIDE B:
Descent 3:09

VINYL GRADE:
Vinyl: Near Mint
Sleeve: Near Mint

RELEASE INFORMATION:
Label: Fiction Records ‎– FICSX 12, Fiction Records ‎– 2141 338
Format: Vinyl, 12″, 45 RPM, Single
Country: UK
Released: Mar 1981
Genre: Rock
Style: Alternative Rock, New Wave, Post-Punk

CREDITS:
Artwork – Undy*, Porl*
Producer – Mike Hedges, Robert Smith
Written-By – Tolhurst*, Smith*, Gallup*

NOTES:
Cover by Porl and Undy

Rear sleeve says “Produced by Mike Hedges And The Cure”, labels say “Mike Hedges/Robert Smith”.

Johnny Hates Jazz – I Don’t Want To Be A Hero (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 13th July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“I Don’t Want to be a Hero” is a 1987 song by the British band Johnny Hates Jazz. It reached #11 in the UK top 40 in August 1987 spending 10 weeks on the chart. It is taken from their #1 album Turn Back the Clock.

The song was written by the band’s lead singer and main songwriter, Clark Datchler. It has a strong anti-war sentiment and is written from the perspective of a soldier who is questioning their participation in what they consider an unjust war. The band’s American record company were reluctant to release the single in the U.S. because of its anti-war stance. The song makes references to conscription and propaganda.

The single was the band’s second top 40 hit in the U.S. peaking at #31 in August 1988.

“I Don’t Want To Be A Hero” also features backing vocals by English singer Kim Wilde.
