An edition of Classic Albums taking a look at Primal Scream’s Screamadelica which both defined a generation and transcended its time. It airs on Friday 10 March at 10.00pm on BBC Four.
Primal Scream’s seminal album was released in 1991, synthesizing the band’s rock n roll roots with the dance culture of that time.
For many, the sound and imagery of Primal Screams’ Screamadelica came to be regarded as quintessential symbols of the Acid House era, perfectly catching the spirit and mood of the early 90s.
Using rare archive footage and special performances, this film tells the story of Screamadelica and its hit singles and dance anthems Loaded, Movin’ On Up, Come Together and Don’t Fight It, Feel It.
From the formation of the band in Glasgow to winning the first-ever Mercury prize, the band members explain the record’s inception with insights from main producer Andrew Weatherall, Creation Records founder Alan McGee and many others involved with, or were inspired by the record.
