Bobby Gillespie / Tenement Kid

An autobiography from the Primal Scream frontman

Bobby Gillespie, singer, songwriter and founder member of Primal Scream has written a book, Tenement Kid, which will be published later this year and is available as special signed editions.

The story is one of a working class upbringing in Glasgow and Gillespie’s “rock n roll epiphany” which would ultimately lead to him becoming an artist initially in the Jesus and Mary Chain then in Primal Scream.
