Over the past three and a half decades, Primal Scream have embraced everything from psychedelic pop to degenerate rock’n’roll, euphoric rave to industrial gloom and captured the mood of the nation several times over. They have made records with George Clinton and Kate Moss, invited Mani of the Stone Roses and Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine into the fold & throughout it all, they have always sounded like Primal Scream. And they have always made great music. Musical disrupters in every sense, the band are part of Britain’s cultural heritage. 30 years since the release of the revolutionary Screamadelica and 11 studio albums later, their songs still resonate with everyone from every generation to have ever found themselves on a dancefloor.
