Primal Scream - August 1983

It was the 13th August 1983 and the line-up was Bobby Gillespie, Jim Beattie and a drum machine.

The venue was Alan McGee’s The Living Room night at The Adams Arms in London.

That night Primal Scream played their first ever gig and Paul Groovy was there, he taped the gig and took some photos.

Also on the bill were the Television Personalities, The Committee and the Jasmine Minks who were also playing their first ever gig.
