On Drugs

by Primitive Calculators

Feature Records for the week beginning Mon 28 May 2018

Seminal proto synth-punks Primitive Calculators are back with their third studio album On Drugs. In a career spanning four decades, a lot has changed but just as much has stayed the same.

The industrial thumping funk familiar to their previous work, still relentlessly punctuates their noise but there is something new here. The nihilism and rage at the world is still there but so is heartbreak and loss. A personal record? Perhaps, it is certainly an album with undeniable soul, and more startling, the distinct pop undertone. Is this Primitive Calculators answer to a “pop” record? It's even got a ballad. It's a dark, nasty, dire, dirge of a ballad to be true, but a ballad it is. This is not a band resting on its laurels, Primitive Calculators are shaking their own foundations.
