The PRIMATES - 'I Ain't Like You' (Voxx 200.034) 1986
This fuzzed up slab of primate mayhem is from their LP 'We Are The Primates'...Seek and you shall find my garage friends.
I'll focus on this song which is true teen punk genius and for my money way better than an awful lot of so called 'classics' from the '66 original teen punk bands. 'I Ain't Like You' was written by guitarist Ted Edlefsen and singer Erik Bluhm.
The Primates were originally from Youngstown, Ohio but moved to Los Angeles sometime in 1985. They were obviously spotted by the Voxx crowd and a 12 track album was released the following year, produced by Greg Shaw and Brett Gurewitz.
Other than this small bit of information I know nothing about the band but would love to know more! This record got played a ton of times in the mid 80s by myself and The Mourning After crowd.
