• LIMITED EDITION 45 RPM VINYL REISSUE OF THIS CLASSIC 1985 SINGLE FROM FELT

• PRESSED ON CLEAR 10” VINYL

In celebration of Cherry Red’s ‘45s at 45’ series, here comes Felt’s iconic anthem Primitive Painters.

Presented as a limited edition clear 10” vinyl and featuring the classic 7” single Penelope Tree on the B-side as a bonus!

On its release in 1985 the song shot to the top of the Independent Singles Chart and has remained a firm favourite with fans ever since. Produced by Robin Guthrie and featuring the skyscraping vocals of Elizabeth Fraser from Cocteau Twins.

For this special release Lawrence has commissioned Douglas Hart to direct a beautiful meditation of the group at the time. Featuring unseen Super 8 footage of characters from the scene including Alan McGee and Martin Duffy.

Felt did not make any videos during the eighties but Lawrence always wanted to make a film for this classic song. Now 38 years later we are proud to present their very first promotional film.
