The Primitives-Maladjusted[64-67]

The group started life as the Rising Sons,before taking the unpromising name of the Cornflakes,under which they won a local band competition in Northampton,the first prize of which was a contract with Pye Records.They'd already developed a strong following with their strong (if somewhat heavy-handed) R&B-based sound in the clubs around Oxford,but coming off of the competition,they also got professional management in the guise of the owners of the Plaza Theatre,where the contest was held and they changed the Cornflakes moniker in favor of the more definitive and appropriate name the Primitives.
