OVER THREE DECADES AND 11 ALBUMS, PRIMAL SCREAM HAVE TACKLED EVERYTHING FROM ROCK TO ELECTRONICA. NOW THEY RETURN TO AUSTRALIA.
FOR MORE THAN 30 years Bobby Gillespie has been one of the leading figures in British music. As the founder, frontman and only constant member of Primal Scream, Gillespie has steered his group through numerous changes in personnel and musical direction while remaining a singular presence. Just as comfortable dissecting politics as he is talking about his band’s music, or his favourite record of the year (Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile’s Lotta Sea Lice), interviewing Gillespie often feels more like catching up with an old friend.
