Psychedelic superstars Primal Scream are bringing their seminal Screamadelica album to the Eden Sessions. Screamadelica Live will see the Glaswegian six-piece play the entire album, which is considered to be one of the defining records of the 90s.
Primal Scream previously played at the Sessions in 2004, a show that is considered by many to be one of the best gigs Eden has ever hosted.
With nine studio albums behind them, Primal Scream are one of the pre-eminent indie rock bands of their generation. Their third record, 1991’s Screamadelica, won the prestigious Mercury Music Prize in 1992. It saw the band fuse their early indie sound with influences from the house scene, defining a unique sound that would colour their subsequent albums. It is also famous for its eye-catching sleeve art, which was chosen by the Royal Mail for one of ten album cover postage stamps issued in January 2010.
Songs such as Loaded, Come Together and Higher Than the Sun have become synonymous with 90s culture but, remarkably, the band had never performed the album in its entirety until an acclaimed pair of London shows last November.
Primal Scream will be joined on stage by legendary DJ Andrew Weatherall, who was one of the producers of Screamadelica and was instrumental in creating the band’s sound.

This one will take you back. It's with tunes like this that Primal Scream really established their unique sound.
Indie rockers The Horrors will be appearing at Eden ahead of the release of their much anticipated third studio album. Their 2007 debut Strange House saw them tour extensively, making numerous festival appearances and bagging a support slot on Arctic Monkeys’ UK arena tour as well as a guest appearance on The Mighty Boosh.
Their follow-up Primary Colours, released in 2009, hit number 25 in the UK album charts, was nominated for that year’s Mercury Prize and ranked in the NME’s list of the 50 best albums of the year.
