Gentle Tuesday

i follow up yesterday's Primal Scream videofest with a classic from their jangle pop roots. "Gentle Tuesday". lead singer Bobby Gillespie was the former drummer of the Jesus & Mary Chain, but actually formed Primal Scream in 1982. "Gentle Tuesday" perfectly shows off the heavy Byrds influence that the band was under in it's earliest form...this influence would later be replaced by the MC5, then the Rolling Stones & The Faces, then Funkadelic, and finally the mishmash of electronic and garage punk that the band is most famous for.

jesus christ, look at those fucking outfits. the Paisley Underground was def not getting anybody laid because of the fashion.
