“Just What Is It That You Want to Do?” – The story of Loaded

Loaded sleeve

The history of Primal Scream’s 1990 single Loaded has been well documented in the past, but an old unedited transcript of an interview published in Music Week has emerged.

The original interview was held in January 1990 by Andy @Birmingham81 (who you really should follow on Twitter) and offers us further insight into how the record happened. We all obviously know how successful Loaded went on to be which makes this interview even more interesting as Primal Scream where considered to be history by many music critics at this point.

And the rest as they say is history….
