It's an event show from Bobby and the boys...
PRIMAL SCREAM debuted a brand new song last night (August 7) as they brought the second day of BENICASSIM to a controversial close.
They opened their 3am set with a guitar-heavy track, that bassist Mani told NME.COM before the show would be called either ‘Suicide Sound’ or ‘Punk Song’. He described their new material as “dirtier than Abi Tiitmuss”.
Meanwhile, singer Bobby Gillespie was typically outspoken. After ‘Swastika Eyes’, he declared “That song is dedicated to anyone who’s opposed to the state of Israel.”
The band hit the site on jubilant form, having played the Eden Project in Cornwall the night before. Mani, dressed in a Man from DelMonte suit, held court backstage, explaining that he was in his “post-colonial costume”.
The Chemical Brothers, who play tomorrow night, arrived today to cheer on their Primal friends.
