“Do not miss it” - NME
You may have read our blog about Primal Scream’s ‘Screamadelica’ tour; if you haven’t, where have you been?
Well, now we bring you more meaty goodness from one of the biggest UK bands on the planet! They have just announced that they will play two special warm-up shows in Leamington and Cardiff in June, as they prepare for their busy summer festival schedule.
So for those of you needing to be refreshed on the infamous 1991 ‘Screamadelica’ album and what it represents, let me take you on a journey back to when Primal Scream were the Kings of the music scene:
1) It has received critical acclaim for being one of the best albums of the decade, going on to win the first ever Mercury Music Prize in 1992, as well as numerous nods of appreciation from media sources over the following years.
2) The classic album 'Screamadelica' was renowned for being innovative and pioneering with its mix of acid house, indie, gospel and soul sounds. It is perhaps appropriate then, that the band has chosen to re-launch it in the current melting pot of musical genres that fill the charts today. The 'masterpiece' of an album is set to catapult the band back into everyone's heart when they fill out venues across the country to their adoring fans.
3) The album was produced by the famed dj Andy Weatherall, and to commemorate the 20th anniversary of its release, he supported the band on their entire Screamadelica tour. He is the man responsible for giving it the house music spin, and thus, cementing Primal Scream into the 90's rave scene. Anyone who was lucky enough to see the last gigs will know that this summer is going to be a damn site better with Primal Scream in it!
