PRIMAL SCREAM Released Their 7th Album ‘EVIL HEAT’ 20 Years Ago Today

5 August 2022

Band: PRIMAL SCREAM
Active: 1982-present (40 years this year)

Anniversary album: EVIL HEAT
Released: 5 August 2022 – 20 years ago

AllMusic: “In the end, it’s as if they just don’t seem to mean
it as much as they did with XTRMNTR, and they just don’t seem
to not care enough as the drug-fueled early days. Still, Evil
Heat delivers.”
Score: 3/5.

TUTV: A lukewarm album from one of my all-time fav bands.
But (there’s always a but) it had 3 rad singles (listen/watch below) on it.

Singles/clips: Autobahn / Miss Lucifer / Some Velvet Morning

PRIMAL SCREAM – Soundbreaking Masterpiece ‘SCREAMADELICA’ Turns 30

Back in time

22 September 2021

Band: PRIMAL SCREAM
Album: SCREAMADELICA
The Scottish rockers’ third LP
Released: 23 September 1991 – 30 years ago

It was the best album of the year for legendary Brit magazines
Melody Maker and Select and #3 in NME‘s end of the year list.

Pitchfork said: “The meeting of unashamed, celebratory club music and rock
star fandom is what gives Primal Scream’s 1991 album Screamadelica its particular
mood, half strutting with confidence, half yearning for transcendence. It’s a full-length
manifesto not just for the brotherhood of clubbing but for the syncretic approach to
rock Primal Scream were exploring.”
Full review here. Score 9/10.

Turn Up The Volume: This was the soundbreaking soundtrack
for drug-fueled parties, 24-hour raves, and E-tastic ecstasy.

Singles/clips: Loaded / Come Together / Higher Than The Sun

Happy 59 To Primal Screamer BOBBY GILLESPIE!

22 June 2021

Robert Bernard Andrew Gillespie better know in rockbiz as
Bobby Gillespie was born in Glasgow, Scotland on 22 June 1962.

Happy 59 to the one-time drummer of The Jesus And Mary Chain and later
– in 1982 – the co-founder of the multifaceted, awesome Primal Scream gang
responsible for one of the most inventive and genre-changing LPs ever with Screamadelica, released in 1991. But the Scream nailed many more ace albums
and crackerjack corkers.

To celebrate the primal screamer’s birthday Turn Up The Volume
choose 3 (really hard to pick only three) big Scream moments…
