Loaded by Primal Scream turns 25

Loaded sleeve

I’m not sure there is anything that I could say about Loaded that hasn’t been said before. Released on February 19th 1990, the single stayed in the singles chart until the summer and even now you hear it in all kinds of places you’d never expect.

As you will know ‘Loaded’ is actually a remix by Boys Own DJ Andrew Weatherall of a track from Primal Scream’s second self-titled album, ‘I’m Losing More Than I’ll Ever Have’ was lost on an album that many ignored at the time.

The mere mention of the words “Just what is it that you want to do…” you immediately know how the rest of the tune goes… it’s a classic. A track that not only defines an era and will be listened to by future generations.
