Anyone here go?
What the fuck was that about?!?!
will probably have a spliff in his hand & a massive cloud of smoke encircling his head.
around 4/5 songs off maxinquaye (most of which he wasn't onstage for, just martina). then got his brother on to rap for 10 minutes, played a few new songs, got the crowd onstage and that was it. not really performing maxinquaye, basically.
was tempted to go tonight. You've put me right off.
Did anyone try to string together some sort of setlist?
but I'm strangely chuffed by this story.
in 1998 I think, he was really bad, just painful. Never listened to his music ever again, the gig put me off him.
glad I didn't now.
Really wanna see him again at somewhere other than the bloody Arches - he was good there a couple of years ago, which is a rare feat for that venue, but then he came back a year later to play the same place... :-(.
who featured with Beyonce at Glastonbury.
read somewhere that Beyonce was trying to humiliate him after he said Jay-Z shouldn't be headlining glastonbury. still pretty weird.
came onstage, fluffed his lines and then was probably removed from said stage with a shepherd's crook while the cameras were showing something else.
Really glad I didn't fork out for this now.
saw the same tour in Glastonbury that year. easily amongst the worst nights ever. worst year for mud, and he was on *last* before Blur. awful times.
Tricky has always been absolutely soul-crushingly shit live. He cannot do anything but harm to his record sales and reputation by touring.
Saw him support PJ Harvey right after Maxinquaye came out. It only worked cos of the lack of burden on him - and cos Peej was so utterly immense right afterwards.
Fuck, even his records since Maxinquaye have been a bit wank.
Pre-Millennial Tension and the Nearly God album were bloody brilliant, in my opinion. Also, sad to hear it was a bit off, I've had this live bootleg from '99 that was brilliant, reworked songs, really energetic and atmospheric, was really tempted to go just by that. This sounds a bit odd though.
So wasn't all bad.
