Its been a bit of a struggle in recent weeks finding time to juggle work commitments, family issues, a social life, the football and trying to blog on a regular basis.
So for the next few days you will have to forgive me as I simply post some songs without offering much in the way of words from me. Its probably a big improvement from most days mind you.
mp3 : Primal Scream - Movin' On Up
mp3 : Primal Scream - Stone My Soul
mp3 : Primal Scream - Carry Me Home
mp3 : Primal Scream - Screamadelica
Collectively, the four songs made up the Dixie-Narco EP which reached #11 in the UK singles charts in early 1992.
Oh, and a PS from ctel, whose incredible body of work at Acid Ted is proof that he's forgotten way more about the genre of dance music than I ever learned in the first place:-
This is an astonishingly brilliant tune, nigh on eleven minutes of blissed out brilliance. This features Primal Scream at the height of their E career, before their Stones fantasies were realised and things went much, much darker. Like Loaded and the Screamdelica album (1991), this wouldn't have been possible without the abiding genius of Andrew Weatherall (who would also go off into darker places in the coming years). It also doesn't feature Bobby's gurning vocals, instead uses the too often overlooked Denise Johnson. Released a year after the Screamadelica album and getting to No.11 this release never quite gets the attention it deserves.
