a vivid, attention-grabbing set of songs that meld spidery guitar lines with electronic beats & textures as they roam from hip-hop to house, jazz to blues & rock to reggae.

It’s typical of one of music’s most unpredictable characters that the first album to bear his birth name is one of his least introspective. Tricky makes complicated music because Adrian Thaws has had a complicated life. Born in 1968, he grew up in an extended family that was both black & white, urban & rural, containing strong women & volatile men. His choice of cover versions on this record is particularly revealing. Janet Kaye’s 1979 lovers rock classic ‘Silly Games’ reminds him of his childhood in Bristol’s Knowle West district while London Posse’s 1990 track ‘Gangster Chronicle’ harks back to his musical apprenticeship with the Wild Bunch & Massive Attack. “an unsung national treasure, still machete-ing a path through the musical jungles” 8/10 – line of best fit.
