Primal Scream played a set voted entirely by fans at London's Electric Brixton venue last night (November 10).

The band, who have been touring their 1991 album 'Screamadelica' this year, played tracks spanning their career at the gig, which was a "fan-curated" event and part of the Levi’s Craft Of Music series.

Alongside the likes of 'Screamadelica' classics 'Movin' On Up' and 'Higher Than The Sun', they aired several songs from their 2000 album 'XTRMNTR', including 'Swastika Eyes', 'Shoot Speed/Kill Light' and 'Accelerator'.

The gig was one of the last Primal Scream bassist Mani will play with the band before returning play with The Stone Roses next year. Writing on fan forum recently, the bassist said that although he is leaving the door open to returning to Primal Scream again, he won't be playing with them "for the foreseeable future".

Mani added: "I have found myself manoeuvred into a position that, although myself and the Scream knew it could always arise, kinda wish that it wasn't right now. We've just enjoyed our best year yet, well since I joined anyway, and started looking forward to the next project. One things for sure, with or without me, the Scream are never stronger than they are right now."

Mani's final gig with Primal Scream before rejoining The Stone Roses is currently scheduled to take place at Edinburgh's Hogmanony celebrations on New Year's Eve.

Primal Scream played:

'Movin' On Up'
'Slip Inside This House'
'Don’t Fight It Feel It'
'Higher Than The Sun'
'Shoot Speed/Kill Light'
'Swastika Eyes'
'Come Together'
'Country Girl'
