Primal Rant: Bobby Gillespie Vents His Spleen

PRIMAL SCREAM is back. The band that released the pivotal U.K. album of the '90s (Screamadelica) and outraged and amused generations of fans with their drug-fueled antics and impassioned love for music has returned. The Scottish dance/rock crossover combo's new album, Xtrmntr, writhes and wallows like an electronic 21st-century version of George Clinton's funk-driven early-'70s outfits.
