Here's a new urban myth: A few days ago Hauke wanted to listen to the last Primal Scream album on YouTube, I haven't bought that one yet. The music started, I was reading on the couch. A few minutes into the record I started to wonder "Primal Scream? Which record is this?" "It's called Psychic Lemon." "Psychic Lemon? Primal Scream didn't make a record called Psychic Lemon. The last record is not called Psychic Lemon." "Must be the record before." "Hmm." I thought that this was an unusual name for a Primal Scream record and went on reading. The music was very good but I thought to myself "What did Gillespie do there, they used to be on another level..." Then a flute came in, I got confused and when the singing began I thought " What happened to Bobby's voice?" I finally stood up and looked up that YouTube video, it wasn't Primal Scream but the band @psychic_lemon
My husband said he had typed in 'Primal Scream full album' and this came up- there was some contempt in my stare that was saying 'Loser!'
So for about 15 minutes Primal Scream had made a record called Psychic Lemon
The good thing about this story: This album is fantastic, a real discovery and on heavy rotation since then. It's the most interesting Kraut-Rock-Psych I have heard in a while, in my opinion much better than the current releases by Moon Duo and likes. I can highly recommend this if you're into psych, Amon Düül and- Primal Scream.
