Robert Bernard Andrew Gillespie better know in showbiz as BOBBY GILLESPIE was
born in Glasgow, Scotland on 22 June 1962. Happy 57 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 rip-roaring corkers. To celebrate Gillespie‘s birthday Turn Up The Volume! choose 5 first-rate corkers from 5 different longplayers.

Band: PRIMAL SCREAM

Album: GIVE OUT BUT DON’T GIVE UP – the band’s fourth album

Released: 28 March 1994 – 25 years ago

BBC Music wrote: “Hanging with George Clinton – he contributes to the title track – and
being produced by southern soul legend Tom Dowd and Black Crowes co-conspirator George Drakoulias was a step on from their rave rebirth. Denise Johnson, who was now officially part
of the Scream’s orbit, had a turn with Free, but it was a mere glimmer of what heights had been previously achieved. Guitars were back in, and the ongoing Stones fascination was omnipotent… but some of the band had decided to get into hard drugs, and an ensuing US tour with Depeche Mode that nearly killed them… By rights, the Primals should’ve owned 1994, but ‘Parklife’ and ‘Definitely Maybe’ came along and suddenly having a confederate flag on your cover when everyone else is waving union jacks smacked of a band in need of a rethink.”

Sometimes I Feel So Lonely‘ by PRIMAL SCREAM

You can be redeemed, boys, you can be redeemed
Life is but a dream, boy, you can be redeemed
Nothing’s as it seems, you can be redeemed
Everything’s permitted, nothing’s really true
Live outside the law, boys, doing what to do
Nothing’s at it seems, you can be redeemed
Sometimes I feel so lonely
Sometimes I feel so lonely
Sometimes I feel so lonely
Sometimes I feel so lonely
You can be redeemed, boys, you can be redeemed
Life is but a dream, boy, you can be redeemed
Nothing’s as it seems, you can be redeemed
Sometimes I feel so lonely
Sometimes I feel so lonely
Sometimes I feel so lonely

Three Horrifying Tracks To Soundtrack FRIDAY THE 13TH…

Play these three psycho killer tracks and all black cats will come to party

* Jesus Built My Hotrod by MINISTRY
“Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil…
In my dang a ding a ding a ding dong
A sticky sticky son of a gun
Ding a danga danga dong dong ding dong”

* XTRMNTR by PRIMAL SCREAM
“Insecticide shots for criminal cops
All jails are concentration camps, all judges are bought
Everyone’s a prostitute, everyone’s a prostitute”

* Creature From Black Leather Lagoon by THE CRAMPS
I’m the creature from the black leather lagoon
“I’m a beautiful monster from outer space, too
Learned how to shake my hips in the inner sanctum
Satan gave me tips and then I thanked him

Have fun today, freakish music junkies

A Little Gem About Equality – Here’s PRIMAL SCREAM With ‘STAR’…

Relaxing musings for the laziest day of the week…

1 April 2018

PRIMAL SCREAM with one of their sensitive moments. STAR is about everybody,
about humankind, about equality, about living together. About all being brothers
and sisters. Mellow and soothing. Here’s the sweet little gem…

Are you solid, are you solid as a rock
Have you a strong foundation or can your soul be bought
It ain’t true that, everybody’s got a price
I sing this song for everyone who stands up for their rights

Every brother is a star, every sister is a star
Every brother is a star, every sister is a star

Sister rose, Malcom X and Dr. King
Showed us we got power, showed what changes we could bring
To change society you have gotta change the law
Their bodies may be gone but their spirits still live on

Every brother is a star, every sister is a star
Every brother is a star, every sister is a star

Rebel souls… souls… souls…

For the dreamers, rebel souls and future days
Be brave and strong, keep keeping on, be conscious in the chaos
The queen of England there’s no greater anarchist
One man’s freedom tighter is another’s terrorist

Every brother is a star, every sister is a star (x4)

STAR was the 2nd single from the rad 1997 album VANISHING POINT

Let’s COME TOGETHER And Hope That Everything Will Be ALRIGHT And OK In 2018…

2017 was an awful year for humankind
Intolerance, sexism, racism, and inequality
reared their ugly heads, again, thanks to
idiotic, narcissistic ‘Me, Myself and I’ elite of
politicians led by clown Trump(et), closely
followed by Erdogan, Theresa May, Kim Jong Un,
Putin and fanatic terrorists who murder viciously
in the name of a God…

Let’s hope that wit, reason, peace, understanding,
togetherness and love will be big again next year!
A couple of sonic screams will certainly help…

HELLO 2018!…

COME TOGETHER

IT’S ALRIGHT, IT’S OK

And many sonic thanks to the more than
40.000 visitors, from around the globe,
who came here to turn it up this past year…
