Partying: Bobby Gillespie

Scream if you wanna party.

You once had a reputation as a rock’n’roll party animal...

I’m actually not a real party guy. I loved the acid house days and everybody on Ecstasy, but to me it was more than just taking drugs. I saw it as a huge cultural moment and was hoping for a shift in perception among people. It was the same as when we took acid. We thought this could maybe give us some kind of insight. Everybody likes a party, but we were always a hard-working band. You get a reputation as a party band, but I think the gonzo aspects of Primal Scream sometimes overrode the art.
