Primal Scream’s career could be considered a summary of British indie rock in the 1980s and 1990s. Bobby Gillespie formed the band while drumming for the Jesus and Mary Chain, quite the opposite of Primal Scream.
After a brief detour to punk-style rock, the group reinvented itself as a dance band in the early ’90s, picking up on the pop and acid house sounds of the Stone Roses and Happy Mondays.
Primal Scream created the ultimate indie pop and dance fusion album, Screamadelica, in 1991. The album broke down boundaries and changed the face of British pop music, bringing dance and techno to the rock audience.
