Primal Scream

Simon Reynolds, Melody Maker, 1 June 1991

BOBBY GILLESPIE reckons that his new single, 'Higher Than The Sun', will revolutionise pop in the Nineties in the same way as the Pistols' 'Anarchy In The UK' transformed the Seventies. SIMON REYNOLDS talks to the starsailor and discovers why he'd rather be a dead Sid Vicious than a live Pet Shop Boy, how he intends to go where no man has gone before and what the oceans of Saturn really sound like.
