'Screamadelica' At 20

Sweet Christ, where did the time go? “LATER this week, Primal Scream will mark the 20th anniversary of their best-loved and most significant album with a gig in their native Glasgow. As part of the same birthday celebrations, a remastered edition of Screamadelica is released tomorrow in various formats, including a collector’s box set edition in a cake tin. Not many albums merit their own cake tin re-issue. Not many album sleeves are reprinted on a postage stamp either; Screamadelica’s bold primary coloured design was selected for the Royal Mail’s “classic album covers” series a year ago. But Screamadelica is a rare beast: an album which captured a moment, a scene, a lifestyle. Come Friday, we’ll all be partying like it’s 1991.”
