Primary cool


YOU may have 'red' about Eddy Current Suppression Ring - after all, their album Primary Colours won the 2009 Australian Music Prize, the Mercury Prize equivalent down under.
Following this hype, you will not be disappointed on hearing the Melbourne-based band's second album - in fact, it 'blue' me away.
Erm, yellow something.
The Antipodean album's tone is set with opener Memory Lane - painting their fuzzy rock with a pallette of classic influences, from the Rolling Stones to Iggy Pop And The Stooges to The Pixies to the Sex Pistols.
The result is an album of straight-forward primal post-punk - Primary Colours is simply brilliant.
