About Bobby Gillespie

Principally known as founder and frontman of the Scottish retro-focused indie rock mainstay Primal Scream, Bobby Gillespie was also a key player in the Creation Records story. He turned the label's brainchild, Alan McGee, on to numerous acts -- the Jesus and Mary Chain, Teenage Fanclub, My Bloody Valentine, and Ride -- all of whom subsequently became household names in discerning indie circles. Gillespie's brief tenure as drummer in an early incarnation of the J and M Chain saw him make a significant contribution to their 1985 classic, Psychocandy. Primal Scream's third, and most iconic, record -- 1991's pioneering, platinum-selling, acid house-infused Screamadelica -- began a run of seven consecutive albums by the band that reached the U.K. Top Ten. 2021 brought Gillespie's first significant musical project outside of Primal Scream in years, a jointly billed set titled Utopian Ashes, with Jehnny Beth of Savages fame.
