Tricky played three shows together with Martina Topley Bird to play MAXINQUAYE. In Bristol, London, Manchester. I attended the concert in London and will write about it here very soon. Also… news…coming soon..

Today is like all the birthdays and christmas’ from the date of my birth until now together. TRICKY uploaded his MOVIE “BROWN PUNK”. Fans have been waiting for this since 2006. NOW it’s HERE! THERE! EVERYWHERE! ADRIAN, THANK YOU!!!!!



Interview with Tricky (@Playground Weekender, Sydney)

In addition to the Photos I already linked here, Music Feedz did an interview with Tricky that can be seen here.

Thanks to Toby Smith who informed me about that.

So, what’s Tricky doing in 2011? I guess, he will be touring. Let’s hope so.





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 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.


From the greatest album of the year, Mixed Race, comes one of the greatest songs of the year: “Ghetto Stars”. This song will be available as a download single and 7″ vinyl for he headz on November 29th via Domino Records. Only a few were pressed, so hurry up, if you want the physical thing.

I don’t know what’s on the B side. “Ghetto Stars” was co-written by Franky Riley. You know her from the Mixed Race album and the tours for over two years. Her brilliant voice meets Trickys unique voice perfectly. “Ghetto Stars is a dark, tense and heavy track about the reality of the gangster lifestyle, too often glamourised in music.”

Tricky tells it like it is, “Ghetto Stars don’t go far, ghetto traps locked behind bars” and “…riding in Zephyrs while my Nan plays the bingo.”

Art Rocker 4* out of 5: “Slow motion hip hop beats, cinematic violins and Franky Riley’s solemn femininity all work together”.

NME: “This is so smooth and syrupy”

The cover features Freddie Foreman who you can also see in the video. Read about Freddie Foreman here. Tricky and Freddie Foreman worked together before, for the album “Product of the Environment” (1999). The album contains 11 spoken tracks with music produced by Gareth Bowen and Tricky. Read more about that here.
