The resulting long tour in support of ''Screamadelica'' was mired by drug abuse, and a quick EP named ''Dixie Narco'' started a move away from dance-rock, towards blues-rock and P-Funk instead. Primal Scream next spent circa two years recording new material in London and Alabama, with an even more eclectic cast of collaborators that included Tom Dowd, George Drakoulias and GeorgeClinton behind the mixing desk, keyboardists Jim Dickinson and Benmont Tench, drummer Roger Hawkins and The Memphis Horns. The new material reverted to the band's traditional method of copying its influences - in this case, Music/TheRollingStones, TheFaces, and numerous {{Funk}} bands. ''Give Out But Don't Give Up'' accordingly received mixed reviews - for every person who liked it despite its derivative nature there was one who agreed with NME's famous review that called them "dance traitors". Its failure on the charts and a long tour led to severe band tension and a long hiatus.

Primal Scream returned in 1997 with a new lineup, including former Music/TheStoneRoses bassist Mani and drummer Paul Mulraney. Reuniting with former collaborators/producers Brendan Lynch and Andrew Weatherall, ''Vanishing Point'' saw the band return to the electronic-rock fusion they found success with, but this time with a DarkerAndEdgier bent and a bigger influence from {{Krautrock}}, TripHop and dub - quite appropriate for an album inspired by the film ''The Vanishing Point''. With this, Primal Scream [[WinBackTheCrowd Won Back The Crowd]] they lost with ''Give Out''.

While Primal Scream did gain some publicity from contributing the song "Velocity Girl" to the ''C86'' compilation, the band suffered from lineup instability, with the lineup eventually paired down to Gillespie, Young, Beattie, Innes and a new drummer. Their debut ''Sonic Flower Groove'' suffered from a torturous birth, being recorded at two separate studios with two separate producers and costing a total of £100,000, having nothing to show for it besides a batch of dull, jangly TheByrds photocopies. The album barely got into the charts and received terrible reviews, prompting more resignations from the band.

For their follow-up ''XTRMNTR'', the band recast themselves as angry-political revolutionaries, matching {{Anvilicious}}, clumsy sociopolitical lyrics with the hardest, harshest songs they ever wrote, drawing inspiration this time from IndustrialMetal. The album featured contributions from [[NewOrder Bernard Sumner]], Brendan Lynch, Adrian Sherwood, The Chemical Brothers and [[Music/MyBloodyValentine Kevin Shields]], the latter of whom continued to work and tour with the band for a while. Shields was never an official member of the band however, since Music/MyBloodyValentine never actually broke up and PrimalScream never actually clarified if he was a member. They carried on with the angry-electro-metal ''Evil Heat'', which boasted a similarly impressive list of contributors - [[Music/TheJesusAndMaryChain Jim Reid]], [[Music/LedZeppelin Robert Plant]], former member Paul Harte and... er, Kate Moss. She was part of the package.
