Performing 'Screamadelica' in it's entirety at sunset! This would be sweet! They have mentioned there is a reunited group that is playing that hasn't made any lists, perhaps it's Primal Scream :)

Yes please! They are doing it here in Australia this month, but I am unable to see it because the stupid organiser put them on at the same time as LCD Soundsystem.

as there are approximately 1,784 bands rumored that I would love to see at sunset, I cannot support this thread

Can't miss LCD, that's a tough one, saw them at Coachella last year and a few months later at the Fox Theatre, Pomona. They are one of the sickest live bands ever! So dope!

Let's hope Primal Scream is on there,,,anytime would be good actually!

Primal Scream Screamadelica ! a long 10 minute 'Higher than the Sun' and the UK 'Come Together' would be perfect.

I love Screamadelica and it is one of the best albums I've listened to, but XTRMNTR is what got me into the group when it first came out 11 years ago so XTRMNTR to me has a higher significance than Screamadelica.

That being said, I would LOVE to catch them play.

They are touring now in Europe playing 'Screamadelica' in it's entirety, that is why I mentioned that album, plus it would translate very well to the polo fields, I love all Primal Scream albums, but if they played it would most likely be 'Screamadelica'.

Side note, they are not scheduled for any shows in April, playing a few in the UK end of March, yeah this would be the awesome!

Sunset wouldn't be right, but I'd really like to see them sub or close out the Mojave Tent/Outdoor. I'd be really surprised if they were on the lineup, but kinda disappointed if they weren't. I think Coachella's probably the only thing that would even have a chance to bring them stateside for this tour.

they've added Camp Bestival 29th-31st July.

and apparently the remastered album has leaked. I wish they'd issue a vinyl edition that didn't come in that ridiculous tin can. also, I'm really hoping someone rips all the DVD footage from the tin can edition and shares it with us.

Sorry to close your thread Dede. Feel free to post more about it in here tho!



Last night in Glasgow, the best (non festival) gig since Bowie in 2003. Absolutely fantastic, ten out of ten no question.

They played the whole of the Screamadelica album, opening with 'Moving on Up' and climaxing with 'Higher Than The Sun', 'Loaded' and 'Come Together'.
6 piece gospel choir and an excellent 'Aretha' style vocalist doubled up with super skinny Bobby G.
Songs were long, extended and very entertaining. Visuals were excellent too - the complete indoor gig experience.

The encore comprised ripping versions of 'Country Girl', 'Jailbird' and finally 'Rocks'. 1 hour 40ish, the perfect set.
Why Goldenvoice booked Duran Duran and not The Scream is beyond me.

Is there still any possibility of Primal Scream, I was thinking since they removed 'Fat Freddy's Drop', they could replace them with The Scream! Would be dope! (And yes, I know FFD is nowhere near the same "anything" as PS) but just figured as there is an open slot...

beg for it! Beg For It!! BEG FOR IT!!! Screamadelica? No album for the last 20years has had more significance! If you build it, they will come.

begging is sad, promoting begging is worse, and exaggerating the significance of the album is going to turn people off. I want to see this as much as anyone else here, but please retain some dignity.

screamadelica live blu-ray/dvd is now available - even in the US, to my amazement. I just watched it this weekend and it's great. comes with an audio cd of the concert too. recommended.

there's also a region 0 'classic albums - screamadelica' documentary dvd available on import. it's a really interesting documentary if you want some insight into the making of the album, 20 years after the fact. I think it's the same documentary that comes in the tin can box set, but I'm not positive.

tour dates now extend through september 17th. I wonder how long they'll stretch this out.

I'd be down for Primal Scream with or without a Screamadelica show.

but a Screamadelica show would be awesome.

there's a screamadelica show scheduled for 9/21 in mexico city. this gives me marginally more hope that they might come to the US.

bumping the most recent primal scream thread to post a story. I had a conversation with stuporfly a while back in which I learned he had not heard the details of this story. while cleaning up today I stumbled across my copy of NME that it was printed in so I took a moment to type it up.


As the song 'Kill All Hippies' should have indicated to the organisers, Primal Scream were kind of a wrong choice to play the Sunday evening at Glastonbury in 2005. Wrong and so very right, as it resulted in the festival's purest punk appearance - i.e. it was outrageously, offensively, aggressively corrupt.

The Scream had arrived by helicopter the previous Friday with a monstrous supply of drugs that didn't exactly quell their open disgust for the event. On the Saturday, Bobby Gillespie had caused upset backstage by defacing a celebrity-signed Make Poverty History poster so it read 'Make Israel History'. By the Sunday, the Pyramid Stage slot assigned to Scream seemed almost designed to bring out their most evil side; an early evening slot between Brian Wilson's 'Smile' set and couples' favourite Basement Jaxx, the replacements for Kylie Minogue, who had pulled out after being diagnosed with breast cancer. As Bobby and Mani's pre-performance interview with Colin Murray and Edith Bowman live on BBC showed, this feelgood bubble was going to get truly spiked:

Edith: "I hear you arrived on a helicopter."
Bobby: "Yeah, we're trying to relive The Rolling Stones at Altamont."
Mani: "We're going to stab some hippies to death at the end of the night."
A nation shifted uncomfortably in its seats.
Edith: "Did you see Brian Wilson?"
Bobby: "Bad Vibrations! That's what Primal Scream are going to be playing."
Edith: "Are you going to stick around to watch the headliners?"
Bobby: "Basement fucking Jaxx? I'm not going to watch Basement Jaxx, they are fucking cocksuckers, man. I hate them. No offence to cocksuckers... Basement Joke, man."

Meanwhile, out in front of the Pyramid Stage, the crowd were basking in the sunshine that had finally come after three days of rain, still buzzing with 'Good Vibrations'. After the Scream came on and played the nice hummable 'Accelerator', the smiley crowd lent their ears to Bobby's first words to them: "We're a punk rock band and you're a bunch of fucking hippies."

A thousand ice creams fell to the floor. After next informing them that "The war on terror is a pretext for an international police state," he then introduced 'Detroit' like so: "Do you wish you were seeing Kylie Minogue? Well, fuuuck you."

Then he did a Nazi salute. So fucked and fucked off were the band at the end of their set they simply refused to leave the stage, with Gillespie contemptuously berating the crowd now gathered for The Jaxx. Mani taunted them with a snippet of the baseline from 'I Am The Resurrection'. "Do you want to hear The Stone Roses?" Gillespie asked. "Well, you should have been there 15 years ago, you lazy bastards."

Eventually the power was cut, and after throwing his microphone stand towards the crowd, Gillespie was physically dragged off, still giving that Nazi salute. Months later Gillespie was forced to deny he was a Nazi sympathiser in an interview with NME, but that was kind of missing the point. This wasn't about politics, it was about being a contrary, offensive, arrogant, nasty, bloody-minded, violent, disturbing car-crash of a musical force. Glasto had been shook by a visceral dose of rock'n'roll.

too bad. Saw them at Glass House this year on a weekday with twenty or so other people, but they still did 'Higher than the Sun' encore cus we brought the heat on and Bobby acknowledged it.
