Primal Scream Howl The Roundhouse Down
REVIEW: Bobby Gillespie & Co take to the stage at this year's iTunes Festival...
Bobby Gillespie proved his worth as a rock 'n' roll great bringing his band's signature style of psychedelia or rather, Screamadelica to the Roundhouse last night (September 20).
Feeling: A colourful set from the Glaswegian rockers who set the iTunes Festival alight from the get go. Moments of chaos, psychedelic bliss and fantastic dancing ensued.
The Look: Not many frontmen can pull off a pink suit like Bobby G. Teamed with Indie's greatest barnet and fringe all eyes were on the Movin' On Up singer - who looked exactly like a leading man should.
Tunes: A set for the purists, playing numbers from the last 20 years or so from More Light's 2013 to Loaded via Rocks, Country Girl and Swastika Eyes.
Banter: Gillespie charmed the crowd occasionally but let his dancing do the talking for most of the set. Sleek, sexy and downright cool, the man of few words needn't say much.
Sweat Factor: Shirt buttons came undone once again as the crowd got their rocks off for the hour and a half set, perhaps a contender for the biggest mosh pit the festival is likely to see this year.
Special Guests: They were not needed. Few frontmen manage to deliver like the former Jesus And Mary Chain drummer who impressed from start to finish.
Summary: Another electrifying night at the iTunes Festival. Primal Scream were on great form and continue to draw crowds to their live shows. The Scream are as exciting and experimental as ever and Screamadelica is alive and well.
