Primal Scream were joined by the iconic Happy Mondays on the Scenic Stage last night (August 5).
With a musical legacy spanning 35 years, Primal Scream has delivered era-defining albums from ‘Screamadelica’ to ‘Riot City Blues’. The band, formed by frontman Bobbie Gillespie, has created their own unique sound spanning everything from psychedelic pop to degenerate rock’n’roll; euphoric rave to industrial gloom.
Happy Mondays, and of course Bez, are known as one of the most influential bands of the 80s and 90s. Acid house, funk, psychedelia and indie collided and with that, the Happy Mondays became an important part of Manchester’s music scene.
