I used to listen to Vanishing Point quite a bit, it is probably my second favourite album by Primal Scream, after Screamadelica obviously. However these days I am more likely to pull out the dub version and if I'm feeling less lethargic than usual I will play the 7" box set version. I think I might give Vanishing Point a dust down this weekend.
On Monday while grappling with a particularly head wrecking set of patient notes, Trainspotting came on the iPod and I stopped trying to verify the data and just listened to the song in it's entirety and then resumed the task with a bit more vigour. Way back in the day when I did even more unhealthy things that I currently do, if presented with what seemed like an insurmountable problem I would head outside no matter the weather and have a cigarette or two and then back to the task in hand ready to overcome what ever had been the obstacle previously. At the beginning of this week I found out that listening to Primal Scream has pretty much the same effect!
It is now a fact, that listening to Primal Scream refreshes those parts of the brain that other bands can't reach.
