7" EP. Primitive Calculators release their first new studio efforts since 1979. Thirty-three years after their classic first single I Can't Stop It, Melbourne's hilarious synth-punk snarlers are working on a new studio album to be released in 2013. They reformed in 2009 at the invitation of the Nick Cave-curated All Tomorrow's Parties festival. For many years, Primitive Calculators’ sizeable legend thrived on their self-released 1979 single, a posthumous live album released in the early 80s, and their involvement in Richard Lowenstein’s 1986 film Dogs In Space, starring INXS’ Michael Hutchence. Primitive Calculators reformed for the film (based on the Little Bands scene they created in the late 70s), appearing in several scenes and recording bleak stomper Pumping Ugly Muscle for the soundtrack. The track was also released as a now very rare 12” single. "Sick Of Myself" is a new song expressing all the ridiculousness of being in a synth-punk band in your mid '50s, while "Cunt Life" is a 1977 classic originally performed by pre-PCs band The Moths, now finally recorded for posterity.
