Primal Scream

Maximum Rock 'n' Roll: The Singles

2 CD
Double LP Volume 1 (1986-2000)
Double LP Volume 2 (2000-2016)

A massive 2-part compilation gathering a range of singles from the legendary Primal Scream, available as a 2 CD set or 2 volumes of vinyl.

“Right from our 1985 debut ‘All Fall Down’ onward we’ve approached singles as an aesthetic choice, a statement of where we are as a band,” says Bobby Gillespie. “We grew up with ‘Suffragette City’ and ‘Metal Guru’ flying out of the radio. The four Sex Pistols singles were great. ‘Public Image’ by PiL sounded like nothing else. Prince and Madonna made amazing hits. That has been our approach. I’ve always loved Top 40 pop radio, I love greatest hits albums like The Who’s ‘Meaty, Beaty, Big & Bouncy’. I remember Alan McGee saying of ‘Higher Than The Sun’: it won’t be a hit, but it will be a statement. Great singles can get out into the world and show people an alternative way of thinking. They make you feel less alone.”
