SURPRISE SCREAM!

The band play a greatest hits set for just 400 fans in Shoreditch...

PRIMAL SCREAM played an impromptu show at an east LONDON rehearsal studio on Saturday night (October 25).

The seminal rockers played a stripped down greatest hits set to an audience of 400 fans to celebrate the tenth birthday of The Fortress – the Shoreditch studio they have regularly practised in over the years.

MC5‘s Mick Jones turned up to watch the 45-minute set that included tracks from ‘Screamadelica’, ‘Vanishing Point’, ‘Give Out But Don’t Give Up’ and ‘Exterminator’ and culminated with two covers, ‘Kick Out The Jams’ by Orband Johnny Thunders’ ‘Born To Run’.

The set was:

‘Accelerator’

‘Rise’

‘Shoot Speed/Kill Light’

‘Burning Wheel’

‘Medication’

‘Jailbird’

‘City’

‘Rocks’

‘Skull X’

‘Movin’ On Up’

‘Kick Out The Jams’

‘Born To Lose’

The gig was part of the Kill All Hippies club night – named after the Primal Scream song – and also featured a performance earlier in the evening by electro duo [a][/a].

Primal Scream‘s appearance coincides with the release of their best of album, ‘Dirty Hits’, out on November 3.
