Album Review

Defining themselves more than just a one-hit wonder, the Primitive Radio Gods retool their artsy modern rock on their long-awaited follow up, the indie rock friendly White Hot Peach (2001). Lead singer Chris O'Connor is not consumed with commercial success, for he makes his own rules when delivering hooky lyrical imagery. The songs themselves are quick, showcasing the band's shimmering acoustics and airy percussion. "Gotta Know Now" and "Blood From a Beating Heart" are mysterious; theatrically impressive with electronic grooves and hushing vibes courtesy of O'Connor's less than dynamic presence as a frontman. "Devil's Triangle" is more aggressive with its heavy riffs and techtronic samples. White Hot Peach, however, isn't designed for a mass appeal. And that's perfectly acceptable. Who needs another massive hit? It appears the Primitive Radio Gods are content with that. Playfully tapping into space rock aesthetics on the six-minute "Whatever Wakes McCool," the band does it without all the hype. White Hot Peach may not be wholesome in the same way as Rocket, but it's a bit more enticing. They went deeper for a sonic bliss, completely ignoring the catch that made them a flash in the pan during the summer of 1996. That's pretty respectable.

Customer Reviews

Incredible CD

I like so many others was turned onto this album by Standing Outisde... off of their cd "Rocket". I bought this cd the other day instead of that one, mostly because I thought the samples from this one sounded better, and I am very impressed. I love almost all the songs, from the jazzy Ghost of a Chance, to the strait up pop/rock Fading Out, all these songs are songs to be heard. If you ever have the chance buy this cd.


This is a great CD to say the least. I first became hooked on Primitive Radio Gods when a friend played the rapidly addicting "Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand" for me during a car ride, and I have not looked back since. After I discovered this album, I realized how incredibly awesome but even more incredibly underrated this band is. I mean, this is only the second review for an album that's been out a whole decade, come on! The sampling is much less than that on "Rocket" but the music still does not fail to impress. Among my top recommendations are "Ghost of a Chance", "Blood from a Beating Heart", "Fading Out", and "Skin Job", but hell, they're all awesome.


"Fading Out" nuff said.


Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

The Primitive Radio Gods' smashing chart debut "Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand" was an unforgettable radio mainstay and MTV favorite during the summer of 1996. It quickly defined the band as another alterna-rock innovator integrating catchy hooks and a hip-hop/new wave mix. The debut album Rocket went gold, and earned the band top spots across the album and singles charts as well. Not too bad for frontman Chris O'Connor. This was a rock & roll fantasy come true for this...
