Mars Needs Guitars! - The Hoodoo Gurus [Sydney, Australia]- 1985 - "Title song. One of their BEST cowpunk songs. Something "The Cramps" or "Scientists" might have done. Very good guitar HOOKS." - Mars Needs Guitars! (Arcadia)-2005.
REVIEW excerpt by Jason Ankeny (allmusic):
"The Hoodoo Gurus followed the excellent Stoneage Romeos with the equally swell Mars Needs Guitars!, a second helping of Dave Faulkner's wonderfully skewed kitsch-pop confections. While the band's basic m.o. hasn't changed all that much in the interim -- '60s-era pop, garage rock, and cowpunk remain their key musical reference points -- Faulkner's skills as a songwriter have grown perceptibly..."
NOTE: Along with the "Stems" this band is one of my favorites from "Down Under"
Sing along. :-)
I'm primitive, I'm a primitive man
Got a primitive girl, we make primitive love
I'm a stoneage Romeo, I got a spaceage Juliet
We make primitive loving cause I ain't got a T.V. set
I'm primitive that's what I am
I'm your primitive mate, I wanna be your man
I want you woman, you know I'm hip
Fly me to Venus, in a real gone rocket ship
You know what that means
Outstanding guitar/drum interlude.
I'm a primitive man, I said I am!
You're up to date, I can't wait
I'm a stoneage Romeo, be my spaceage Juliet
We'll take guitars to Mars, and hit the discotech!
I mean it baby
See my image
Yeah you're out of this world
So like on your cable mind
You like this long hair
Yeah, take that crazy
I ain't no square
