Bobby Gillespie and co surged back this year with new album, More Light, their 10th and one of their finest in a kaleidoscopic career. They celebrate more than 25 years of rocking out with this ultra intimate show at The Hospital Club.

The Scream started out in the late Eighties after Gillespie finished up with fellow Scot rockers The Jesus And Mary Chain. Since then, they’ve gone from alt-rock beginnings, through the ecstasy-fuelled Screamadelica and onto the Rolling Stones-esque follow-up Give Out But Don’t Give Up.

They then reinvented themselves as full-on electro-terrorists with a trio of fuzzed out, boundary-pushing records of full-on racket and a bristling take-no-prisoners attitude. Vanishing Point introduced a new, electro-beat based sound, XTRMNTR saw the band pushing themselves to new extremes and the ensuing Evil Heat strapped harmonies and a Kate Moss vocal cameo to the aggressive wall of noise. 

Since 2006, though, they have been mostly back to rocking out with six strings, Riot City Blues single Country Girl seeing the band back in the charts with the sort of catchy tune Jagger could shake his wigglesome hips to. 

They’ve never been easily pigeonholed, have always bucked the trend, and ducked expectations. Sometimes it has worked, other occasions less so (the Accelerator single was a bold but unlistenable screech of feedback).
