PRIMAL SCREAM – Soundbreaking Masterpiece ‘SCREAMADELICA’ Turns 30

Back in time

22 September 2021

Band: PRIMAL SCREAM
Album: SCREAMADELICA
The Scottish rockers’ third LP
Released: 23 September 1991 – 30 years ago

It was the best album of the year for legendary Brit magazines
Melody Maker and Select and #3 in NME‘s end of the year list.

Pitchfork said: “The meeting of unashamed, celebratory club music and rock
star fandom is what gives Primal Scream’s 1991 album Screamadelica its particular
mood, half strutting with confidence, half yearning for transcendence. It’s a full-length
manifesto not just for the brotherhood of clubbing but for the syncretic approach to
rock Primal Scream were exploring.”
Full review here. Score 9/10.

Turn Up The Volume: This was the soundbreaking soundtrack
for drug-fueled parties, 24-hour raves, and E-tastic ecstasy.
