The Cover of Primal Scream single Swastika Eyes

Primal Scream and David Holmes were talent-swapping back in 2000. He remixed 'Swastika Eyes' and they guested on his track 'Sick City'. It was the meeting of similar minds - curious, fractious and unapologetic. The friendship has sustained and David returned from Los Angeles last year with some great new Scream tunes (slipped into a set at The Menagerie, as I recall) and hilarious tales about a rock and roll gymnasium in Hollywood.

The new album, produced by David, is called 'More Light'. The firm will be together at the Ebrington Arena in Derry, March 19 and there's a single called '2013' that rolls in an infernal manner and has a haywire sax that recalls the first Theatre of Hate album. A quality outcome.
