Primal Scream (UK)

Come on Bobby, hit that dance floor

Wait, don’t apostatize from primalscreamism yet. If you followed Bobby Gillespie when he saw the light (higher than the sun) of house on Screamadelica, if you waited for them to get back from their crossing of the southern rock swamp with Give Out But Don't Give Up, if you took communion for the first time with kraut thanks to Kowalski, if you wielded the sword of fire of XTRMNTR, if with the change of the century their sermon didn’t affect you as much as before (but you had to admit that they still had a few juggernauts in them such as Miss Lucifer), if your faith started off as a doubt and went on to become indifference… Wait to see the rosary of hits by Primal Scream in an intimate setting. Just four gesticulations and claps from Bobby less than 5 metres away from you and you will believe again.
