With retrospective collection ‘Maximum Rock ’n’ Roll’ set for release on 24th May, Primal Scream have announced details of a remastered reissue of 1986 track ‘Velocity Girl’, alongside an Edie Sedgwick-starring video.
The song will be out physically - also on 24th May - alongside new track ‘Broken’.
“I had an Edie Sedgwick type character in mind when I wrote ‘Velocity Girl’,” says Bobby Gillespie. “I read Jean Stein’s biography about her and I wanted to meet a girl like that. Hanging out with Warhol, The Velvet Underground , Bob Dylan and shooting speed whilst looking absolutely fabulous. Super hip and beautiful. She was the muse. I love her.”
Primal Scream play two small gigs next month - Brighton’s Haunt on 20th May and London’s Scala the following night - as well as All Points East, Warrington’s Neighbourhood Weekender and Summer Sessions in Edinburgh this August.
