Ooops… Tricky played in Greece / 3 times

So even though if I check the net quite often for Tricky news I didn’t get the news he was going to play shows in Greece. Now… we are talking about the past and the past few days he had shows at the Principal Club Theater in Thessaloniki, the Gagarin 205 in Athens and the Polichoros Politeia in Patras.

Couldn’t find any pictures, any videos, any more information.

To met it’s the “Ghost”-tour 😉

What a post.

Tricky vinyl collection

There’s this man called Pierre-Jean Pascal or deadstar from France.
He does this site called mansoncollectors, where he shows his amazing Marilyn Manson collection. He is a vinyl junkie and shows his stuff in videos, gives comments, does very nice editing on the videos.
A few days ago he uploaded four videos that show his entire TRICKY vinyl collection.

See the videos here:




Very nice, Pierre-Jean. Please visit him and give him props.

On the side note: I got more. Haha. 😉

Tricky in german and spanish press

The german interview platform PLANET INTERVIEW published a new one with TRICKY. Since it’s in german, I’ll try to translate some statements within the next days. He talks about the “I Sing For The Joker” song by Franky Riley and what it has to do with him, Batman movies, Heath Ledger vs. Jack Nicholson, politics, magazines…

Read it here, if you’re able to read german or if you are able to put it in a translator 😉

On other news, Tricky played the Actual Festival in Logrono, Spain, at the 5th of January. The article tells what happened around his performance (no sound check, no press conference, this and that).

Read that here, if you’re able to read spanish or if you are able to put it in a translator 😉

this/ that – diverse things

Tricky has two tour dates coming up, San Francisco today and then L.A., before it’s christmas.

I don’t.

But I found this video. Enjoy.

TRICKY rescued out of snow storm – Shows in Chicago and Minneapolis cancelled

If you were waiting in Chicago, waiting for Tricky, you might have been disappointed by the cancellation of the gig. If you read about the reason you might be happy he survived that day, because he and his band got stuck in a snow storm near Ontario, Canada, on the way from Toronto to Chicago. Over 300 motorists were stuck there. Here’s a picture of the bus.

He and the others were picked up by a man called John Prins who took everyone to his home. They were round about 29 people, including other stuck people. Crazy story, but true, read ALL about it THERE

and THERE.

Not only the show in Chicago had to be cancelled, but also the one in Minneapolis.

John Pris, you deserve lots of christmas gifts. One of them I’ll send you.

TRICKY in New York

Two reviews about the New York gigs that opened the US tour:
At the LPR gig a lot of very nice pictures were taken. You might want to see them at Brooklyn Vegan.

One day later, they played Brooklyn Bowl. Read about it here.

It seems as if there’s a new drummer with Tricky, but I’m not sure.

US TOUR KICKING OFF

TRICKY is in the United States of America, more precisely North America, kicking off his US tour today at the LPR (Le Poisson Rouge) in New York. Tomorrow everyone in that area could also catch him at the Brooklyn Bowl, Brooklyn.

“GHETTO STARS” SINGLE MYSTERY

The announced vinyl single is not available yet,
the B-Side download track (“Ghetto Stars” french version feat. Coeur de Pirate) has been taken off Domino Records download site a few days ago.
It wasn’t downloadable for Germans, so I couldn’t buy it, but listen to a few seconds (stream). The only thing you can get is “Ghetto Stars” as a single download, but it seems to me as if it’s the same version that’s on the album.
I wonder why all this happened and what’s going on. I’ll keep you updated.

“GHETTO STARS” SINGLE B-SIDE SURPRISE

The last weeks I was wondering what song would be on the B-side of the “Ghetto Stars” single. The single should have been available in stores now, but it’s not actually, so there might be no physical release. It’s listed on Amazon, but you can’t order it.

BUT you can download the single here. And there the you can see what’s the “B-side”.

No other than Couer de Pirate laid down french vocals for a different version of “Ghetto Stars”. Great.

Just yesterday I found out about her and listened to the MySpace songs the whole day and now this. 🙂
