primal scream had reverted back to a studio project with mani sidelined as a live band member. amongst the usual we love each other/brother comments, there was some friction re creative input. i'm sure he'd love a reliable gig though
their current bass player while easy on the eye is a bit of non entity. then again, they're all fully wedged up now though so the motivation won't be that strong for a long long time except ian probably. i think john would struggle returning to art and i don't really see him doing anything musical although of course he should!
despite ian's on stage comments, i bet there won't be an official announcement and they'll manage to drag themselves up on stage together in another 5 or 10 years.
