Ten Epic Live Performances I Never Ever Get Tired Of…

Hands up if you like these ten stunning tracks as much as I do. Ten standout performances that send shivers down my spine, ten goosebumps crackers I can listen to any moment of the day, ten stunners I heard for about 1 million times, and will countless times again in the future.

Here’s why…

1. Dead & Gone’ by TOY (UK)
Smashing psychedelia with a mind-blowing finale…

2. ‘I Am Mark E Smith by FAT WHITE FAMILY (UK)
One of the best live bands of the past 10 years…

Overwhelming passion, towering intensity…

Gorgeous pop queen Karen O at her very best…

5. ‘Baby I Call Hell’ by DEAP VALLY (California, US)
Kick-ass blues rock frenzy by two utterly cool ladies…

6. ‘Common People‘ by PULP (UK)
Jarvis Cocker‘s orgiastic performance leads to spectacular euphoria…

Fist-pumping anthem…

8. ‘Laid’ by James (UK)
No festivals this year, but this is my ecstatic alternative…

9. ‘Fried My Little Brains’ by THE KILLS (UK/US)
I’m in love with Alison Mosshart, she does my brains in…

10. ‘Rocks’ by PRIMAL SCREAM (Scotland)
The steamy ripper The Rolling Stones never wrote…

We’re gonna have a party

PRIMAL SCREAM – Fourth LP ‘GIVE OUT BUT DON’T GIVE UP’ Came Out 25 Years Ago…

Great albums from the past…

27 March 2019

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
