Primal Scream, Thursday, May 26, at Fiddler's Green, with Depeche Mode and Stabbing Westward, has little in common with either of the bands on its current tour. In contrast to the keyboard-tapping Modes or Westward's junior Trent Reznors, the Screamers combine Scottish roots, British dance rhythms and American gospel into the unique, alternative sound heard on their latest Sire release, Give Out But Don't Give Up. If lead singer Bobby Gillespie and his faithful bandmates approach this date with as much passion and energy as they displayed on their last trip through Colorado, the show will be a success. If not, the concert still should satisfy as a miniature Lollapalooza--but without the NARAL and Greenpeace booths.
