Bobby Gillespie

Bobby Gillespie

Primal Scream singer-songwriter Bobby Gillespie's memoir, published thirty years after the release of the band's masterpiece, Screamadelica, cuts a righteous path through a decade lost to Thatcherism and saved by acid house. He talks to author and Manchester Haçienda DJ Dave Haslam about being born into a working-class Glaswegian family in the summer of 1961, and how his destiny was sealed with the arrival of the Sex Pistols and punk rock – an iconoclastic vision of class rebellion that led to him becoming an artist initially in the Jesus and Mary Chain then in Primal Scream, one of the most innovative British bands of the 1990s.
