Rocker Bobby Gillespie credits Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher with persuading Primal Scream to return to a classic rock sound on their new album.
Primal Scream's latest album RIOT CITY BLUES has a completely different sound to the two albums, XTRMNTR and EVIL HEAT, which preceded it.
Gillespie explains, "I'm happy that people still talk about (Primal Scream's 1991 album) SCREAMADELICA.
"Not so long ago I stayed up all night with Liam Gallagher and he was telling me how much he liked that record.
"He said, 'XTRMNTR and Evil Heat are all hate, Bob, but Screamadelica - there's a lot of love on that record.' He was right.
"There's a lot of love on our new record, too, and Liam definitely influenced that."
