Live review: Primal Scream

Live Review

Venue: Glasgow O2 ABC

Home turf gig for Bobby G and co.

Arriving on stage, Bobby Gillespie positions himself between bassist Simone Butler and backing vocalist Hannah Marsden. Trading the band’s guitar army for some sassy feminine front and gorgeous harmonies has paid off handsomely, especially on jangly opener 100% Or Nothing.

Jailbird and Rocks recall the moment Gillespie and Andrew Innes became the rave generation’s Glimmer Twins; while delivering a particularly beguiling (I’m Gonna) Cry Myself Blind, the singer’s skeletal paw frantically pushes the air in front of him.
