The Screamadelica Tour brings Primal Screal to Copenhagen this week on sunday the 28-08.
If you can’t remember dancing to Primal Scream’s anthem “Loaded” back in 1991, you missed out on a seven-minute, four-chord medley of brass, organ, acid house piano and stylised guitars, reinforced by Peter Fonda’s anarchic proclamation, “We wanna be free, to do what we wanna do…” Now a wedding-disco favourite, the track was the pinnacle of their Mercury Prize-winning album Screamadelica, which grouped the rhythms and licks of gospel, house and rock under one big party tent, setting a musical agenda for years to come.
The band are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Screamadelica by performing the album in full over a nine-night tour across Britain in March. They are also releasing a boxset containing candy-coloured vinyl, as well a deluxe edition remastered by My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields. Those suffering from winter blues could do worse than revisit this gem of indie pop rapture.
