Primary is a rock band based in Sydney, Australia from 1995 until the early 2000s. The band's nucleus consisted of Jamie Fonti (keyboards), Sean Fonti (bass guitar) and Connie Mitchell (vocalist). Jamie and Sean were members of Caligula, and met Connie in a recording studio, while they were recording demo tracks.
Their first recording, the EP Vicious Precious produced by Nick Launay in 1998, included drummer Paul Wheeler and guitarist John Bousfield. Bousfield was enlisted after delivering a mattress to Jamie Fonti's house, hearing the early demos and offering his services. Bousfield was one of Australias most original young guitarists at the time,stemming from Gumption Sydney's youngest band of the mid 90s. Sean and Jamie Fonti also played in My Heart Bleeds For You, a mid 80's Punk Hardcore band. Sean also played in legendary Sydney hardcore outfit Massappeal (1987-1990), Caligula from (1989-1994) and Def FX (1995-1997) and was a highly respected for his profesional approach and showmanship. Nick Launay went on to produce more tracks that formed the basis of the band's first full-length album, This Is The Sound. Primary became known for their energetic live shows, with Connie's on-stage presence and costumes a talking point.
Their second album, Watching The World was recorded in 2001. The band announced on their website on 24 April 2002 that they were recording demos for their third album, but no release has been forthcoming. Connie has since collaborated with fellow Sydneysiders Sneaky Sound System on several songs for their self-titled album.
