Greetings all!!!
Jan 05, 2017, 18:40
Hi there! I was a big Julian Cope fan during the eighties/early nineties, got into the dance music thang (acid house), fell out-of-love with rock music, moved to another country for 12 years (Thailand) and have recently moved back to England and have started to get back into some of my favourite artists again I perhaps drifted away from during some of their mid-period albums (I'm also guilty of this with people like Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, The Fall etc...) and attend their concerts again (seeing Copey and The Fall next month). I never drifted away from Primal Scream though and have enjoyed being a member on the Webadelica forum for quite some time. Unfortunately that forum is dead as a dodo these days (nobody posts anything anymore) and my patience has been tested by the band in recent times (awful, awful attempt at a pop single with Sky Ferreira, not-so-great latest album & yawnathon, predictable setlists pleasing the casual-nostalgia-hungry fan only). So I've jumped ship and am hoping to find a new music-discussion-forum home here. I hope I am welcome! Nice to meet you all! Hope you like the 2016 compilations I posted on here.

Welcome aboard! I actually think Chaosmosis was the best thing The Scream have done in years. They went pop and disco, instead of the rock thang which people expected. You really can't beat XTRMNTR, but at least they are doing something a bit different from their norm.

'100% or Nothing' is a fantastic song, which would grace any Eurovision Song Contest!

Thanks for the welcome!!!

Yeah well it's not a bad album really, just not one of their best!

I guess I found it a strange move to do pop when they already had a stab at that with BEAUTIFUL FUTURE but apparently they weren't too happy with that album & I think CHAOSMOSIS is better.

I prefer MORE LIGHT to CHAOSMOSIS though!

Looking forward to hearing the Archdrude's new album I must admit!!!

Not sure if this has been mentioned on here before or not but this pre-sale ad also includes the track-listing too...

Beautiful Future was indeed bad. More Light included Better Light, and both were quite fantastic. Agreed! Nae cunt bought it though!

"More Light" will have to do :)

Welcome aboard!!

Yeah, I reckon Chaosmosis was the the best album of last year - Yes, personally beating Blackstar, in my own opinion. I saw Primal Scream twice in 2016, too.

Welcome! Maybe see you at a Cope gig soon.

As we used to say on this Board many years ago; you bring some biscuits and I'll put the kettle on.
