You might stop the party, but you couldn’t stop the future!

Good to see that 20 years on from the Criminal Justice Act illegal raves are still going strong in the Sussex countryside.

One made the headlines after taking place in Devil’s Dyke at the weekend, resulting in usual over the top reporting from the Daily Mail website.

As Spiral Tribe said 20 years ago “You might stop the party, but you can’t stop the future.”

Primal Scream present ‘the solid vibes rock ‘n’ roll C90′ – a Spotify playlist


Its 20 years since Primal Scream released ‘Screamadelica‘. As a result it feels like there is a bit of a 90’s revival taking place at the moment. Everyone ‘shoe gazing’ back 20 years to 1991.

‘Screamadelica’ was actually released later in the year and funnily enough it was reviewed in the same issue of NME (w/e 21/09/91) as Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’. Primal Scream got a full page review and 10 out of 10 from Stuart Bailie whilst 3 pages later Steve Lamacq gave ‘Nevermind’ a 9 in a small corner review on page 36.

In early 1992 Select magazine’s Andrew Perry visited Bobby Gillespie’s Brighton flat. In a piece entitled ‘punks, drunks and junkies’, Gillespie selected 24 “songs that triggered Primal Scream” and recorded them onto a c90 cassette that was later given away to one lucky reader.  Now with the beauty of Spotify I can bring you 19 of those tracks that made up ‘the solid vibes rock ‘n’ roll C90‘.

5 tracks are unavailable. Dion’s – Born To Be With You / Dennis Wilson – Thoughts Of You* / Lee Hazelwood – Wait & See / Freddie Scott – Am I Grooving You / Tapper Zukie – New Star /

As Perry points out, Gillespie is jet-lagged, having just returned from the Memphis sessions that resulted in the ‘Dixie-Narco’ EP.  As the writer points out, its ‘heavy going’. Have a listen

23/03/14 – * now added to the playlist.
