The thing about Primal Scream is you never know where they might go next. When I first saw them, they hadn’t long released Sonic Flower Groove, but 4 years later they would be at the centre of indie dance, and then industrial, electronic, blues, indie rock.  INvesting no recently released compilation ‘Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll – The Singles only only demonstrates the bands chameleon-like ability to change skin and make brilliant singles across genres.

The band have recently played a couple of shows in London Andy Brighton ahead of a run of festival sets over the summer, and they‘ve now announced they are to tour the UK and Ireland this November/December. The dates, listed below, include a London gig at the O2 Forum Kentish Town and culminate with a homecoming show at Glasgow’s Barrowlands:
