#38 primal scream – accelerator (live)

the weekend’s here, and what we really need is some noise. mbv‘s been making headlines for their reunion tours after a long 16 years hiatus, while primal scream has a new album out and will be touring this year as well. i won’t be able to catch either, but this live track – taken off their concert in tokyo in 2002 – serves as a solid second best. of all the different transformations primal scream has gone through (indiepop, dance, rock & roll and dub, to name a few), my favorite has always been their xtrmntr days where they were joined by mbv’s kevin shields. his presence is unmistakable here in “accelerator”, a brutal onslaught of earsplitting noise that only he carries off with such ease. play this loud – very loud.
