Primal Scream - LA House Of Blues, 2000

What to say about Primal Scream? They've been my favourite band for about the last 20 years, seen them all over the place a ridiculous amount of times over the years, and will continue to do so for as long as they choose to play. Always a mental night!

This is the best live show I've ever heard by them, from LA in 2000 (XTRMNTR tour). Check the lineup: the band complete with Kevin Shields on full sonic attack duty, along with a horn section and a flautist, not to mention the addition of Sex Pistol Steve Jones for the encore. They are on fuckin fire here, with a stunning set to boot. Hell, even the usual lowlights of Medication and Rocks sound great on this.

Don't know the source of the recording, but it's perfect quality. I defy you not to get goosebumps when you hear Shoot Speed Kill Light. Be sure to check in on the Webadelica forum if you're a fan, plenty more goodies in the download section...
