Primal Scream ‎– Exterminator (XTRMNTR)

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
On the cover art, the fanciful typographic treatment of the band name and album title happens to omit vowels, apparently just for aesthetics. Sometimes another part of the release disagrees and fully spells out one word or the other. Test pressings call it Exterminator. Consequently, the album is represented inconsistently in vendor catalogs, label & fan sites, and here on Discogs.

I bought this album by mistake, and when I got home I realised that I wanted to buy the Vanishing Point album, but as I put this in the player and listened I was surprised. I already have the famous Screamadelica album that everyone one raves about, although I only like one song, so as I sat and listened I thought it was going to be rubbish. But I was surprised XTRMNTR is a much better album, although I don't like all of it, there are a few nuggets of gold. This is not an album for the faint hearted, it's raw and very rough, but I like it's hardness and there is some good experimenting going on. I don't think there are any main stream songs on this album and it's all very experimental, it's more artistic than pop music. Overall although I liked it on the first listen, I can see myself getting bored of it, and this album will only be listened to on the very odd occasion.

The cover is not silvered, just simple grey as you see on the pictures.

This pressing has problems! First of all it's mono. Not sure if this is intended? Also, 60hz hum is present in several places. Avoid!

Does anyone know what the distinctive instrument is that is used periodically on Blood Money, for what may be considered 'the chorus', if you will? I remember reading an interview of XTRMNTR at the time and the Scream explaining that it was an instrument used by Roy Budd during the 60's for his soundtracks and that there is only 1 in existence but i cant remember what they said it was called. It sounds incredible.

I just read on the MBV page that Shields joined PS from 1998-Present?? Which leads me to ask the question of whether or not he was on this LP, considering that there's a heavy MBV influence as it is!? I owned this on CD when it came out and apparently someone snagged it from my house one day because it is not where it belongs in my collection, so I was curious if anyone out there happened to know if Shields was part of this in the studio? Thanks

I disagree with the other commenters here on this. This is the last good Primal Scream album, some proper far-out tracks on here, MBV Arkestra being THE one. Released almost 17 years ago...
