Screamadelica

BBC Review

Autumn 1991 saw a wealth of excitement for the indie set. You had Nevermind quietly munching its way across the planet, Teenage Fanclub's defining Bandwagonesque, Saint Etienne launched Foxbase Alpha and My Bloody Valentine were about to be dropped after their colossal Loveless nearly bankrupts their label. Amongst all this, Primal Scream released Screamadelica and seemingly altered the musical landscape.

The first signs of the genesis of Screamadelica came in Spring 1990 when they released Loaded. Initially something of a dance/rock traitor excursion, Andrew Weatherall took a I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have from their previous album, slipped it a couple of bad things, threw on a Peter Fonda sample and transformed it into a masterpiece of the era. Loaded was the Primal's passport to Top Of The Pops and elevated Bobby Gillespie to Smash Hits poster-boy status. Subsequent singles Come Together (here in a remixed version), Higher Than The Sun (one of the most 'out there' singles to have graced the Top 40, here in both original and epic dub symphony in two parts) and the MC5 meets the rave-up italo sensation Don't Fight It Feel It. Kick off the album with the still-jubilant Movin' On Up, and the ingredients for something very special indeed were there.

Weatherall had loosened up the Scream, and they would never be the same again. A whole new menu of opportunities and sonic exploration was theirs, and allowed them out of the constraints of the 'rock outfit' set-up. That they followed it up with the slightly underwhelming Give Out But Don't Give Up is one for the history books, but proving it wasn't a one-off with the further adventures of Vanishing Point and the seminal Xtrmntr, showed that the Scream were almost chroniclers of the times.

Both of its time yet quintessentially timeless, Screamadelica still sounds like nothing else, yet all things at once. Digestable whether off your nut in a club, soundtracking a barbeque or even indie seduction. 18 years down the line, it's not too much to suggest that it's a solid gold classic. --Ian Wade

I used to hate it, but it's very good. Now that all that Madchester thing is gone, I can listen to it.

This is an album I had loved when it was originally released, almost twenty years ago. I listened to it often for a year or so at the time, then put it away, and I probably hadn't heard the full album since then, until I bought this remastered "Deluxe" version.

My first impression, after listening to this a couple of times, is that this album is at least as much the work of the producers as of the band, and the way it turned out, this is in no way a bad thing. Producer Andrew Weatherall had remixed a track from the band's previous album; that track was "I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have", and the remix became the track "Loaded" - a huge departure from the band's previous style, and a top 20 hit in UK early in 1990.

Weatherall was retained as producer for the band's third album, and, with assistance from a number of other notable producers, this album emerged towards the end of the year. The sound is very different from the band's earlier, rockier, rougher sound, and it fitted in perfectly with the sound of the time, heavily influenced by house, and other dance genres, and making imaginative use of technology and samples.

There isn't a duff track on the album, from the Stones-y opener "Moving On Up" right through to the reflective (but loud!) harmonium-driven closer "Shine Like Stars", and on through the second disc of this edition, which contains the "Dixie Narco" EP, remastered in its entirety.

In between, there is a busy cover of the 13th Floor Elevators" "Slip Inside This House"; heavy on the piano, this does however sound like a bridge between the old Primal Scream, and this new dance-friendly version.

Alas the impact of having to take out a second mortgage every time you go into a garage at the moment precludes the purchase of the super deluxe tin box set of this classic album by Bobby Gillespie's funsters Primal Scream. Should however the lottery ever yield more than a tenner then it will be first into the basket. Until then this remastered version of the 20 year old Screamadelica will do fine (where has the time gone?). "Screamadelica" is one of the great music fusion albums. Just about every music genre is to be found in its grooves from jazz to dub from rock to rave, but more than this is segues together as a unified whole with a underpinning vibe which makes it one of the best British albums of the past two decades.

It is of course a album for ever associated with "the summer of love" in the early 1990s and there is no denying that the band partook of a vast array and range of substances in its making. Gillespie for example has recently confessed that he was so out of it during the recording of the second track "Slip inside this house" that he didn't provide the vocal, instead it was completed by Robert Young on warbling duties. Similarly there is some lovely irony in the fact that the year it won the Mercury Prize in 1992, one bookie had Simply Red's "Stars" as the favourite. Primal Scream of course were more concerned to get higher than the sun and this album today sounds a fresh as ever with the new remastering giving it a pristine clarity and focus, although to be fair the first mix particularly by the combined talent of Andy Weatherall, Jimmy Miller and the Orb was a miracle of its age.

No you are not wrong Mister Willard. When this first came out a friend told me that I just had to buy it, it was just so good. So I bought a copy and put it on and by track three was wondering if it would actually at some point take off and surprise me. By track five, having sat through the repeating whistle track and actually hated it, I was seriously beginning to dislike this album. So I let it run through, gave it a few days, tried again and still didn't like it so I took it back to Cobb records in Porthmadog and traded it in. As Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space by Spiritualised shoes how something like this can be done, Screamadelica is just a repetitive dirge.
So the other day I saw it in the library and thought I would give it another try and after nearly a quarter of a century it still sounds rubbish.
I am totally baffled as to what the fuss was all about and how even now it is getting five star reviews. It is just so, mediocre.
So I am in total agreement with you so you are not alone. That makes two of us and I suspect there are many more who saw through the hype.

Before this all I knew about Primal Scream came from tracks on the various 'Creation compilation' samplers I'd hunted down in local (alas, mostly long gone) indie shops. The Stonesy swagger I heard on those tracks hardly prepared me for this! Of course, the real innovation of 'Screamadelica' was as much in the MIX as the in the songs themselves, and this idea could and should have been the blueprint for more rock-rave-dance hybrids. Here in North America its impact maybe got a little lost and muted in the avalanche of mostly tuneless Seattle slobrock that flowed in the wake of 'Nevermind', but it still turned a lot of heads...

Now, Japan has just released 2CD 'mini lp' versions of the five studio releases from 'Give in...' to 'Riot City Blues'. The fact that they DIDN'T include 'Screamadelica' among these leads me to think/believe/hope that Sony is planning to give it the deluxe edition treatment. Providing they don't compress the life out of it, a sonic/packaging upgrade is most welcome. What a great, great album...
