Primal Scream are a Scottish alternative rock band originally formed in 1982 in Glasgow by Bobby Gillespie (vox) and Jim Beattie and now based in London. The current lineup consists of Gillespie, Andrew Innes (guitar), Martin Duffy (keyboards), Gary "Mani" Mounfield (bass), and Darrin Mooney on drums.

 

Despite multiple lineup changes, the band has remained commercially successful and continues to tour and record to this day, and Ian Wade of the BBC considers the band to be the best live act in Britain. I would agree with that having seen them a few times.

 

The band were first introduced to the acid house scene by Alan McGee (who took Gillespie to his first gig, a Thin Lizzy concert) in 1988. Following a taste for it, "Loaded", became the band's first major hit, reaching number 16 on the UK Singles Chart. This was followed by another single, "Come Together", which reached number 19.

 

The band entered the studio with Andy Weatherall, Hugo Nicolson, The Orb and Jimmy Miller producing, and Martin Duffy on keyboards. They released two more singles, "Higher Than The Sun" and "Don't Fight It, Feel It", both of which were successful. The album, Screamadelica, was released in the autumn to ecstatic reviews.

 

Its one of those albums that all music lovers just must have in their collection. I recall it won the first Mercury Music Prize, beating Gillespie's former band The Jesus and Mary Chain.

 

This track is from 'Beautiful Future' which was released in 2008.
