Seminal Scottish act Primal Scream spent the best part of two years dining out on their Mercury Prize-winning album of 1992, Screamadelica.
It was a tour that took in Perth last year as part of the Big Day Out.
After 30 years in the business, such a nostalgia tour, which saw the band play the record in its entirety, befitted their standing as elder statesmen of British music.
"I don't know if we are; I think that's the Rolling Stones, isn't it," guitarist Andrew Innes laughs.
Innes says the album's status as a classic was responsible for a surprising number of young people turning out to the shows.
"You do get younger people getting into the music, which is great because I think if it was a load of blokes the same age as me coming to the gigs it wouldn't quite be the same," he says.
Formed by singer Bobbie Gillespie in 1982, Primal Scream rose to prominence during the acid house movement of the late 80s; a period that saw a rapid increase in ecstasy use and was a precursor to the rave scene of the 90s.
"I don't think what we got up to in the late 80s/early 90s is fashionable any more," Innes admits. "It's a bit like the 60s, if you were involved in that scene in the early 90s you can't really remember."
But Innes has total recall when it comes to their Heaton Park shows in June/July supporting a long-awaited Stone Roses comeback. It was a comeback that saw bassist Mani end his long-running stint with Primal Scream and return to the Madchester heroes on a permanent basis. The concerts broke a sales record by shifting 220,000 tickets in 68 minutes and Innes says the famously fractious Stone Roses were in good form.
Good news considering they're due to play Future Music next year.
"It's Mani's birthday this month and everyone's going, he's having a party," Innes says. "If they can make it through Mani's birthday party I think they'll be fine to make it to Australia."
The group has released nine studio albums and Innes says 2000's XTRMNTR is his favourite but believes LP #10, due next year, might be their best yet.
"Of course, you always do, which is why you keep going," he explains.
"You'll never make a record that you think is as good as (Love's) Forever Changes or, to me, it's Electric Warrior by T. Rex, which was my first ever LP."
The band worked with artists such as Josh Homme on 2008's Beautiful Future and, though NME is reporting Led Zepp's Robert Plant will make an appearance on the new album, Innes is playing his cards close to his chest.
"It's like Christmas, isn't it - you don't want to know there's no Santa Claus, do you?"
Luckily, fans will get to see material from the coming album - a live version of a song called 2012 is doing the rounds on YouTube as we speak - when they tour Australia in December.
"I know that people always groan when bands say they're playing the new songs," Innes acknowledges."But we think they're good and that's exciting for us."
