Primal Scream - Screamadelica Picture Disc / 12" Singles Box Set
Originally released in 1991, Primal Scream’s "Screamadelica" is one of those rare records that’s indisputably an era- defining, all-time classic.
Its hedonistic collision course of club culture and rock roots made Primal Scream one of the most critically adored bands of recent decades, and took them into the Top 10 for the first time, later becoming the first ever album to win the Mercury Prize. Its singles, including Movin’ On Up, Loaded and Come Together remain dancefloor and radio favourites to this day.
Now Primal Scream commemorate the album’s 30th anniversary with three special releases: The "Screamadelica" 12” Singles Box features nine replicas of the singles from the original campaign, all pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl. It’s completed by a tenth disc, which consists of a previously unheard remix (and accompanying instrumental) of Shine Like Stars by the album’s late and beloved producer Andrew Weatherall. The box also features three art prints by the album’s cover artist Paul Cannell and a download code.
The "Screamadelica" double-vinyl picture disc features the album’s iconic artwork pressed onto vinyl. This represents the first ever official "Screamadelica" picture disc.
Bobby Gillespie reflected on "Screamadelica" during an interview with VICE, commenting: “It feels amazing to have made an album that when you walk into a record store then you see it up on the wall along with albums like Ziggy Stardust, Transformer, and Never Mind the Bollocks. As well as seeing Astral Weeks by Van Morrison, you see the first Velvets album and you see Screamadelica. And you’d probably see Led Zeppelin IV. You know what? That’s beyond my wildest dreams when we started as a band. It’s a pure record."
Bobby Gillespie recently teamed up with Jehnny Beth of Savages to release the critically acclaimed duets album ‘Utopian Ashes’. He will also release his memoir ‘Tenement Kid’ in October. A book filled with the joy and wonder of a rock ‘n’ roll apostle who would radically reshape the future sounds of fin de siècle British pop, Bobby Gillespie’s memoir cuts a righteous path through a decade lost to Thatcherism and saved by acid house.
