The new Primal Scream album, Riot City Blues' is seriously good. Its like Bobby and co woke up and thought, yeah we actually ARE a rock band. They haven't given up on rock and roll Mister. They are giving out guitars, guitars, mandolins and catchy freakin chorus. They have cleared the swastika from their eyes and actually dropped the bomb. There are no Miss Lucifer type creatures dangerously dancing on ceilings here. The odd Country Girl, references to Jesus and suicide and the feeling of a wild ride but that's about it. So bring borth the rock and... mandolins - I give it two thumbs up.

Some reporter blandly puts it thus:
LONDON: Syd Barrett, the troubled founding member of Pink Floyd, has died aged 60, after living the life of a recluse for the last 30 years.
"The band are naturally very upset and sad to learn of Syd Barrett's death," Pink Floyd said in a statement.
"Syd was the guiding light of the early band line-up and leaves a legacy which continues to inspire."
