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.

Primal Scream's long and slightly complicated history begins in 1982, when [[FaceOfTheBand frontman]], vocalist and chief mastermind Bobby Gillespie joined forces with his guitarist friend Jim Beattie. At first, PS was merely something Gillespie did in his spare time, with his full-time job being drumming for TheJesusAndMaryChain (he's the one who plays drums on ''Psychocandy''). However, the band's lineup quickly expanded to include Robert Young on bass, Stuart May on guitar, drummer Tom [=McGurk=] and tambourine player Martin St. John. PS got a contract with notable alternative label Creation Records [[note]]Music/MyBloodyValentine, TheJesusAndMaryChain, SaintEtienne, {{Ride}}, {{Oasis}}[[/note]] and released a single, "All Fall Down". Gillespie was then given an ultimatum to either dissolve Primal Scream and join JAMC full-time or resign, choosing the latter option.

Primal Scream entered the studio with a DreamTeam's worth of producers including Weatherall, ambient house duo The Orb, Hugo Nicholson, Hypnotone and Music/TheRollingStones knob-twiddler Jimmy Miller. The result, ''Music/{{Screamadelica}}'', was a massive [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly genre stew]], smashing together AlternativeRock, PsychedelicRock, acid house, gospel and dub and including several nods to their influences ("Movin' on Up" borrowed lyrics from [[Music/{{Can}} "Yoo Doo Right"]] from "Monster Movie" (1968) and a cover of "Slip Inside This House" by The13thFloorElevators). With the music's quality strong enough to weather its amateurish-looking cover, ''Music/{{Screamadelica}}'' became the band's first successful album.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness
EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Sonic Flower Groove'' is a jangly, syrupy, Byrds-inspired Indie Pop record. It's gentle and polite, unlike every album they've done since. ''Primal Scream'', influenced by Music/TheRollingStones and Music/{{MC5}}, is also very unlike the Indie Rock/Psychedelia/Dance hybrid music they became known for, though they've recorded two albums since that try to do the straightforward Rock sound correctly.[[note]]''Give Out But Don't Give Up'' and ''Riot City Blues''[[/note]]
* GenreRoulette: ''More Light'' jumps from Dance Rock to Psychedelic Rock, Shoegazing, RapRock, and back again.
* NewSoundAlbum: Pretty much every one.Every one:
**''Primal Scream'' moved from gentle Jangle Pop to loud Garage Rock
**''Screamadelica'' was a full-on House/Rock/Psychedelia hybrid
**''Give Out But Don't Give Up'' tried straightforward British Trad Rock
**''Vanishing Point'' took heavy dub and techno influence
**''XTRMNTR'' took Industrial and Noise Rock influence
**''Evil Heat'' combined the previous two albums' styles together
**''Riot City Blues'' tried the Rock thing again
**''Beautiful Future'' combined their electronic side with their bubblegum roots
**''More Light'' returned to the Psychedelic/Indie/Dance hybrid style, with a greater focus on individual songs
