For me Primal Scream started and ended with ‘Screamadelica’. Perhaps it was the fact that it coincided with my college years but I’d put it in my top 3 albums. It was released on Creation Records in 1991 and saw the Glaswegian’s drop their jangling noodles for a dance beat. Andrew Weatherall was responsible for the makeover but ‘Screamadelica’ wouldn’t have succeeded were it not for the immaculate vocals of Denise Johnson, the menacing bass turn by Jah Wobble and Bobby Gillespie’s unmistakable way with a tune. Side one closed with an absolute epic that spliced a MLK speech with a creeping tide of swirling synths, giddy beats and a drum kick that’ll wipe out all your couch tendencies. In an album of unmitigated classics ‘Come Together’ just refuses to reveal a single weakness and unless you are shorn of a heartbeat you will be enthralled for 10 minutes. Primal Scream, know what I mean? KD
