Robert “Bobby” Gillespie (born 22 June 1962) is a Scottish musician, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. He is best known as the lead singer, founding member, and primary lyricist of the alternative rock band Primal Scream. He was also the drummer for The Jesus and Mary Chain in the mid-1980s. In 2021, he released a duet album with Jehnny Beth titled Utopian Ashes, which received favourable reviews.

 

Primal Scream

The band signed to Creation Records in 1985, and over the next year, they released a pair of singles. However, Primal Scream did not really take off until the middle of 1986, when Gillespie left the Jesus and Mary Chain and guitarists Andrew Innes and Robert Young joined the band. The B-side “Velocity Girl” wound up on NME‘s C86 cassette compilation, a collection of underground pop groups that defined the UK’s mid-’80s indie pop scene. After the band rejected the initial version of debut album, Sonic Flower Groove, recorded with Stephen Street, they re-recorded the album with Mayo Thompson, and the record released in 1987 on the Creation subsidiary Elevation. The album was well received in the British indie community, as was its 1989 follow-up, Primal Scream, which demonstrated hard rock influences from The Rolling Stones and New York Dolls to The Stooges and MC5.

As the 1980s drew to a close, Britain’s underground music scene became dominated by the burgeoning acid house scene. Furthermore, Primal Scream became fascinated with the new dance music, and they asked a friend; a DJ named Andrew Weatherall, to remix a track from Primal Scream, “I’m Losing More Than I’ll Ever Have”. Weatherall reworked the song, adding a heavy bass groove echoing dub, deleting most of the original instrumentation (including the layers of guitars), and interjecting layers of samples, including lines of Peter Fonda’s dialogue from The Wild Angels. Additionally, The new mix retitled “Loaded”, and it became a sensation. “Come Together”, the first single from their forthcoming third album, in much the same vein, and similarly praised.

In January 2010, Primal Scream started work on their new album, More Light, released in May 2013.

In March 2016, Chaosmosis released, album containing well received songs such as “100% or Nothing”, “Trippin’ on Your Love”.
