Primal Scream Country Girl Covers
This is where I really, really started to get into Primal Scream again.
Sure, I'll admit it. Some of their stuff turned me off for a while. But that was my problem, not theirs. And I am a huge fan of their take on Vanishing Point.
This single has a fantastic cover. Country Girl is a classic rave up. Live, this song brings down the house. The cover here is classically presented with a dark and sinister top and bottom bar, just like a scene from a letterboxed film. I love what they did with this package.
It's all so retro without being obvious. Vintage, surreal, and disturbing. Kind of like the Scream itself. A fantastic shot of gutbucket blues and honky tonk chillin'.
