Primal Scream – ‘More Light’
- Studio: Primal Scream
- Producer: First International
In a recent interview for Topman magazine (who else?), Bobbie Gillespie bemoaned the lack of anti-establishment gusto in today’s modern musician. Since Ben Howard seems unlikely to speak out against the Bedroom Tax, it’s over to Primal Scream to fight the good fight. ‘Culturecide’ and ‘2013’ unleash rapid-fire yowls of political discourse – “Breezeblock prison, somebody’s home!”/ “Every generation buys the lie!” – while ‘Sideman’ has dimension-warping synths that could soundtrack a 60s comic-book villain. ‘More Light’ is prosaic, but also proof that when you want to rally a new generation, it’s not Marcus Mumford you want holding the megaphone.
