PRIMAL SCREAM - Live in 1991
It’s 20 years since Primal Scream released their Screamadelica album, so here’s a couple of live shows from 1991. I first heard Primal Scream in 1989 when they released their sexy sleazy leather clad second album. Forget their debut album, a load of substandard second hand Byrds shite. Their third album Screamadelica on the other hand is a totally different beast to either of these. It’s a visionary piece of work that took the past and turned it into the future. It’s Ecstasy loaded grooves embraced the new rave sounds of the 90‘s, but never once forgot its soulful Rock’n’Roll roots. A sound greater than the sum of its influences. Anyway I couldn’t chose between either of these Scream live recordings, so here’s two for the price of none. Take a trip back to 1991 in either Nottingham or Leicester. Enjoy! Screamadelica has been re-mastered and re-packaged and is about to be re-released. The revolutionary becomes part of the retrolutionary.
