Primal Scream: Show Preview

Primal Scream might not be the U.K.'s best rock band, but it's certainly the country's most innovative. That's because of the group's willingness to augment its '70s-era rock 'n' roll with wildly divergent influences pulled from the '90s rave scene: tripped-out acid house, aggressive Fatboy Slim-inspired breakbeats, and druggy sampledelia. Now, the group is back with a new LP, More Light, a return to roots that strips off all the electronic gloss for a shambling, gospel-tinged message about the inequalities of the modern world. The new direction is big in character, so expect the band to deliver something large when it plays the Regency Ballroom this Friday.
