Great Lost Band Members # 22 Jim Beattie

More Primal Scream. Co-conspirator of their earliest incarnation along with Bobby Gillespie. He can be heard on their early records and debut album Sonic Flower Groove after which they took a different musical direction and he went on to form Spirea X and Adventures in Stereo. Sonic Flower Groove itself is a record clearly under the spell of The Byrds, never quite breaking free to forge an identity of its own or fulfilling the promise of early songs such as It Happens and Velocity Girl. Nevertheless, it has its moments for those fond of that chiming sound and Beattie can be heard at his best in the song below.
