Primal Scream

Primal Scream was formed in 1982 in Glasgow by Bobby Gillespie and Jim Beattie. At the time Bobby Gillespie started the band whilst drumming for Jesus and Mary Chain. For the next couple of years Primal Scream regularly performed but they did not achieve success until Gillespie left Jesus and Mary Chain. They then developed from their jaggly pop sound to a more psychedelic and later dance style, following the pop and acid house fusions by the likes of the Stone Roses and Happy Mondays.

In 1991 they released their album Screamadelica that catapulted the band into the limelight with its indie pop and dance fusion. Screamadelica also marked an important moment in British pop in the 1990's, helping to bring techno and house into the mainstream. The album was a massive success, winning the first Mercury Music Prize in 1992.

Their latest album Chaosmosis was released in March 2016. The current lineup consists of Gillespie, Andrew Innes (guitar), Martin Duffy (keyboards), Simone Butler (bass) and Darrin Mooney (drums).
