Album of The Month: Primal Scream Screamadelica
September 17, 2021
Our Album of The Month for September is ‘Screamadelica’, the third studio album from Primal Scream. The album was actually released 30 years ago on 23rd September, 1991!
Here’s a couple of things you may or may not already know about the ‘Screamadelica’ album:
– ‘Screamadelica’ was the third album released by Scottish rock band Primal Scream and it peaked at #8 on the Official UK Chart.
– ‘Screamadelica’ spawned the hits, ‘Movin’ on Up’, ‘Loaded’ and ‘Come Together’.
– The album became the winner of the first ever Mercury Prize Award in 1992, helping the band sell 650,000 copies of the record.
– The artwork for the album was painted by Paul Cannell who was inspired by a damp water spot he’d seen on the ceiling after taking LSD.
– Lead singer of Primal Scream, Bobby Gillespie spoke to Vice last month about the importance of ‘Screamadelica’: “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.'”
