It’s the first time Primal Scream have released a live album in the UK, although they did put put ‘Live In Japan’ in Japan in 2003.

The six-piece have spent much of the last year performing their seminal 1991 album Screamadelica in its entirety, although frontman Bobby Gillespie recently revealed the band have working on a new album which will “hopefully” be out next year.

Their last album ‘Beautiful Future’ was released in July 2008.
