Probably about ten years too late, but could be interesting I guess. Think I'll listen to it again now.
Just leave it alone. It's ours now. Whatever Primal Scream now is has little connection to this record.
let alone Screamadelica.
Still, so long as they don't suddenly burst into Country Girl midway through Loaded...
since they came back AGAIN and did the shit American rock shtick.
The first time, with the awful Rocks and shit, was bad enough.
Then Bobby G came back and claimed his favourite record was "Everythings Gone Green" after all = hope.
I'm not forgiving them again. They just play too many horrible rock cliches. I went to see them a few years ago and I felt like I was in a Vodaphone advert. Horrible horrible horrible. If they start fucking with Screamadelica, I ain't listening.
for the first time in years and was amazed by how fresh it still sounds today.
I was driving along the M42 in heavy snow in the dark and I could barely see what lane I was meant to be in, while lorries thundered past me, yet Screamadelica had a strangely calming effect on me.
It's the only Primal Scream album I own (a situation unlikely to change) and I would be quite interested to see if they could still play it live today, given how much tinkering was done on it in the studio by the likes of Andrew Weatherall et al.
While I appreciate that it is in effect a public apology for playing 'Give out but don't give up' in its entirety and virtually none of 'Screamadelica' at the Cambridge Corn Exchange on my 21st, I still don't think I can do it.
