Post Titled: WIRED interviews TRICKY.

Honestly it has been nearly 10 years since I have bought a Tricky album, but Maxinquaye did pretty much blow my mind when it came out in the same way that Portishead or Massive Attack did. I saw Tricky in 1998 as the whole trip-hop phenomenon was winding down, and at the time he seemed senselessly and aggressively stoned for the two or three somgs he actually played before someone spilled water on a piece of equipment and he threw a fit and left the stage completely, thus ending the show. Funny how the least active group from that era- Portishead- is the last man standing. Massive Attack still tours, still makes music, still sounds ok... but just seems a bit empty...
