This eight-minute epic signalled the point that everything changed for The Horrors. After an underwhelming first album, many had written off the five-piece – until they heard this. The first taster from ‘Primary Colours’ showed the band had been absorbing their impeccable influences and creating something far more satisfying – in this instance an amalgamation of the motorik rhythms of Neu!, the intensity of My Bloody Valentine and the druggy beauty of Spacemen 3. The results put them up there with all of those guys, and they’ve never looked back. (AW)
