Grown Up Wrong! was Dave Laing' label (before he put up Dog Meat records) : "so I sat up late and called him [Billy Borgioli] up and introduced myself and said if you've got any studio stuff I'd love to do a record. And he just said there and then yeah, we've got a few tracks that we did in a little demo studio just for radio play, they're just sitting around doing nothing, so send us $150 to finish paying off the studio and they're yours. So I was pretty rapt with that, and to date that's still one of my favorite records that I've done. I think that Primitive Souls twelve inch ep is just a fantastic, fantastic record, and it's really pissed me off that it didn't get much response, but I guess the Real Kids never got that much of a reaction from anyone so maybe it wasn't too surprising. It's a real shame." (from divinerites.com)
