Brit-poppers Primal Scream
have unleashed a new record, Beautiful Future
(out now in the UK; not sure on the US release date). And as if there weren't enough Primal Screamers already, the band --- founded by one of Jesus & Mary Chain's early drummers, Booby Gillespie -- seems intent on stocking its records with plenty of guest stars. It's nothing new for these guys, who roped Kate Moss into singing on Evil Heat
, and Beautiful
features the vocals of Linda Thompson and CSS' Lovefoxxx, and guitarwork by Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme. You can download one of Primal Scream's newest singles, "Urban Guerrilla" for free here
, a bombastic ditty about modern terrorism with plenty of arena rock swagger. Primal Scream's tour stops in San Francisco March 17 at the Fillmore.
