Primal Scream have revealed they were once approached by Kylie Minogue to collaborate with her but were having too many problems to be able to comply with her request
Kylie Minogue wanted to work with Primal Scream.
The Australian singer - who has previously collaborated with artists including Nick Cave and Manic Street Preachers - approached the 'Loaded' hitmakers to write a track for her, but the group were having too many problems to accept.
Frontman Bobby Gillespie revealed: "We met her twice - at a photoshoot and then she came to a gig in Australia. She was lovely.
"I think she was looking for us to write a song for her and make a record with her. But we were having problems even writing songs for ourselves at that point. So it never happened."
Primal Scream - who were previously famed for their drink and drug-fuelled partying - recently marked 25 years since the release of their first single 'All Fall Down' but the group are surprised their career has lasted so long.
Asked if he ever expected the group to be around 25 years, 48-year-old Bobby admitted to Q magazine: "I didn't think I'd be alive then. I probably didn't want to be alive. Seriously.
"So the answer is no. But I always knew we were good. It was always a serious thing. It wasn't like a part-time thing before you go back to doing a real job."
