"Hit Al once once they got the total proof with DNA tests. They began to build a relationship. Good yeah so I mean. He has a pretty decent relationship with Marie. Dmz He's a good dude. He's not a bad dune he really isn't like a really good dude. He does like some dumb shit when he was a kid and like a balloon up to it. Exactly every instance of somebody calling him out or like he's like you're right. I was an asshole. Yeah or like oh I have a kid okay. I'm going to be a dad now. Cool do what I can. Shit in the late auto reunion occurred with tricky massive attack time. He'll most wounds and they worked on music again in two thousand sixteen. They released the album ritual spirit. Which was the first to see trick at since Nineteen Ninety-four? Wow you up. But in two thousand twelve he had the once in a lifetime opportunity to perform with beyond saying on stage at the Glastonbury festival wound. But let this go to show. How very shy. Tricky is and how he never really gotten over it when he got on stage with one of the most famous popstars in the world in front of over two hundred thousand people. Tricky just froze. He missed his verse and finish the Song. Without uttering a word in his Mike O. And he's just a nice dude is like I can't be in front of all these fucking people afterwards. He would blamed technical difficulties to avoid total embarrassment however he does say that the onset was gracious about the whole thing actually a really normal person. She didn't ask for a special trailer. She said the same dressing room that everyone else had and it was really nice to Donald. Fucking worry about it. I don't care. We had fun like she danced on him for a second. You saw Jay Z. And he's like I'm not going to do anything. Women don't look at me and gold but also you can't say shit shut the fuck up honestly and probably not. Yeah Yeah. Tricky may not have gotten an ego over his success but he probably should have gotten a tax guy. Jesus he just gets like google rope of like every musician thing. Oh Yeah Not Musician Story. His aloofness does him no favours. Yeah not also doesn't favors. It's weird again like I said. He's very lucky and music. Very unlucky in life because by two thousand ten he discovered that he owed over five hundred thousand dollars in unpaid taxes on both sides of the Atlantic. Honestly that's not a whole lot comparatively. You're putting some people you would sink. He also had a former manager of suing him for unpaid wages. Oh yeah so. He has a lot going on here and you would think like most famous musicians should be nothing right. Well no this was no easy fix of okay. Let's just work hard and pay this off. He had moved around so much of it on so many levels that it was hard to tell exactly how he was gonNA fix each issue. Because it's hard to tell like where they started where they ended. Yeah he also didn't notice how he spent money he never learned to drive so we had a lot of car services he did drugs he would just go out and spend money and yes he is successful but he is not that success so and again didn't realize that he didn't have his he's like oh taxes he's not good with money clearly didn't have any and neither were any of the people that he hired to manage his money. I don't know who was managing as money if anybody wants at all exactly just when he was about to give up on everything and move back in with his family in Bristol this close to two when he just turned into a millennial clock struck twelve the carriage turned into a Pumpkin and he became a millennial. Oh this is what we do if somebody's going to move back. I don't need this fame as fine. A German record manager named Horst Vinyl Mueller from K seven records. It's an exclamation point. In front of K Seven Kevin Records. He approached him to work on a new album and to help him with his finances and it was no easy trick. Tricky was still making music and putting out albums and even started another label called false idols. Here released an album of the same name around that time. Okay solid. I'm GonNa tell you right now if you're going to listen to a tricky album. I really like false idols. Great but even with releases and tours. He was not seeing an end to his debt so they decided to take away a majority of his live band like I said he was slowly and slowly taking away little pieces of his set. So daddy this resulted in some experimentation with an album called skilled mechanics pretty stripped down effort and it was produced a bit hurriedly overall. It's tricky least favorite album But overall this experience helped in every aspect from learning how to be such good businessmen to even a better performer. Such good businessman. He's much better businessman now than he was before with them with a minimal band. There is nothing to hide behind and so we had no choice but to work on his confidence. And it's all been for the better trickiest music. Creation process has changed becoming more thoughtful and not so rushed. He's been touring successfully gaining more and more fans and retroactive praise. For albums that may not have been recognized for their potential at first overall tricky. Never let the fame get the better of him as a person he just wants to be treated with respect like any other normal human he understands how hard life can be and so he can fund the beauty in everyday life which makes his music so relatable Even at fifty two. I think he still has a lot to offer and will continue to shape music for a long time and deserves to get his do. It's kind of crazy that he's fifty two. I know he don't look fifty two boiler good You know what they say. I do know what they say. And it's true however like trickiest book. I am ending this on a very sad note. Oh so buckle up. Oh God yeah what happens so maybe not everyone realizes this and I did address this earlier in the episode but mental illness is genetic uh-huh it can easily run the lines of your family's DNA in this case. Tricky IS MOTHER. Maxine had it. He himself was certainly showing symptoms and so is his daughter. Macy just this past may twenty. Nineteen maisy tragically took her own life this understandably absolutely rocked tricky and Martinez worlds as well as many others. Maisy was a budding musician. Herself she was a member of the south London. Collective called four into read the last chapter of Tricky Book. It is simply a page that he clearly wrote after like. I think he finished the book. And then this happened again. Added the Sin Rape. Before it was published the second slash chapter is so sweet and positive and he talks about like how he's come from so much and how he's been really lucky and then the last actual chapter is just a page. It's just about how maisy took her life. He doesn't know how to process it. He's lost people. But this is just one yeah and ends on such a bleak and sad and it's sad because you do see how much he's gone through and how much he's progressed and celebrated and done so well throughout it and then he ends on this note in. I think a lot of people can relate to that of seeing like this loss in your life wondering. Can you recover from it? We don't know he's still made a little music but this is this is the one. This is the loss that rip rip at his heartbreak. It is to lose your child to sue US. Like he started his book losing his mother to suicide and he ends his book losing his daughter to suicide. And it's crazy and sad and I feel my heart goes out to and Martina and all the people in their lives. Because that's such issues so young. And she her own artist making her own path and heard a little bit of the 4:04 collective they put out a song that was written by her and called blindspot. I highly just looking up. It's a very good song. She clearly is touting was talented. And it's a shame on so many levels to lose her but that's how powerful mental illnesses is that somebody who is young and has their entire life ahead of them and is doing creative and important things and they know they're doing creative and important things that mental illness is still so powerful that it overtakes everything else right now. That's the tragedy and as and say it every time if you guys are feeling lost or like you don't matter you do and reach out and get help because this is what happens in aftermath is that there are people left behind and it rips our lives apart. Yeah losing you is worse than you thinking that you don't need to be here. Yeah well. That was a bummer. Note to leave in on. You're welcome. I hope really hoping this is going to be positive at the end. Sorry no it's not your fault. Say but he's volume as fall. It's you know look out for each other. Look yourself you matter so yeah I think that's the point. I really want to bring home with. That is whether you think so. We're not you do in fact matter to at least one person and that is worth getting help. Yeah for definitely get help. Think you need it. There's no shame in that. Take a pill if you need to see a therapist if you need to do you need to do you know. Shimano CBD oil. I don't know what you need to do. Just straight up fucking pot all the time. That's fine add. Figure it out like whatever you need to keep yourself here do it. And just not heroin. Oh Yeah just. Don't do heroin. Heroin GonNA keep you here. It's not it's fast tracking straight to not here heroines. A fast track to not here but like I was saying especially because of all this. Listen to Turkey's music. It's so good and you're going to hear so much influence in a specially when you listen Ma. Anything just listened to Maxine Quaye. Yeah eighties such a great album. He is so talented Martinez amazingly talented and is really the foundation of you. Know everything you listen to. Now if you listen to now from fucking dub step bullshit to scroll ix or whoever the Falke is and like Ariana Grande Day or whatever honestly it really is the foundation for all of the modern pop that we listen to now and even the Rock dwayne Johnson the loves tricky probably shun listening to Turkey. 'cause I'm saying it way. The Rock Johnson listens to tricky. He probably does honestly if you want to be like the rock the rocky no scrub scrub at all while all right so thank you guys so much for listening China when it here because we hit rock bottom. We're.

"Very Minute Aghazadeh Zorzi sweat. How Bin Laden then a contemplated plan on fugit but did he call it black steel because it sounds like he used steel drums in it. No it's actually cover of A. Oh Yeah it's a cover of a public enemy's black steel our of chaos okay and it's actually very interesting tracks it's all about you know the recruitment during the Vietnam War in the letter saying you gotta go fight now the draft all that Shit. Maybe he made the conscious choice of using steel drums. Definitely sounds like sealed definitely has a very nineties feel not in a bad way it really feels ninety two brings me back to the mid nineties one hundred percent yeah. Martinez vocals were done almost completely in one take. She claimed it was all totally instinctive. Tricky lyrics really stepped up here hitting dark yet. Meaningful themes of death and paranoia the male dread of intimacy drug abuse in cultural decline. Wow that was a lot to shove into one song. All the whole album the okay entire album. It's just. He really hit on a lot of these issues. The final product came out in nineteen ninety-five. It was named Maxine Quaye. But it's all one word. Maximum kway okay is after his late mother. Tricky attributes her death in influence on him as to why he writes in a more Feminine Style and why his lyrics tend towards more darkly realistic yet. Sometimes hold onto a little glimmer of hope But usually it's pretty sad and dark and Glen. Yeah yeah grim neck limb. The thing that threw off many was the album's booklet which featured tricky and Martina dressed in old fashioned wedding outfits but Gender Bent Tricky wore the wedding dress and Martina more the suit and tricky had been known to wear women's dresses on occasion. But it's not from any desire to cross dress Actually pretty interesting. It's starting in his teens. As a way to get attention and push the envelope so to speak you right which is why a lot of people wanNA dudes in their teens where Lady's dresses transgender or they're not crossdressing across. They wanted. Just you know. I don't know I don't hate that. Yeah it was like you're comfortable enough in your own fucking skin to say our dress. Who gives a shit like more like? Why does this make you feel uncomfortable because clearly? I'm not uncovering you shouldn't be uncomfortable by this. But you are so why. So I don't know I think that's something to applaud. That's fine but he also said that it was a way to go against the Macho man culture that's pushed onto the male gender. He thinks all mentioned have to wear a dress at least once in their lives so they can begin to breakdown. That unhealthy concept of you know Macho Man. I'm a big tough guy. Yeah he feels. He did stay in either an interview in the book. I don't remember which about he feels that. There's a sense of insurance. That comes along with that as well you know of. I need to be this big tough guy. You're you're really closing yourself off to other ideas by doing that. Yeah and so also. Dresses weren't really invented specifically for women because historically men wore dresses or skirts or whatever to even more them into fucking battle. So fuck off guys. It's okay guys. You can wear a dress. I kind of agree with the every man should have to run address for a day kind of hot. Yeah awfully kilts likings room and got guys like it's okay like I think. Nothing is sexier than a man. Who's like I'll put on address and some makeup? I don't give a shit because also utilize some nice strong tree trunk thighs peeking out from under. You take a look at them games. Do A twirl for me. But I mean there's nothing sexier than a guy who is not afraid of gender bending and doesn't take him so seriously humor address. Yeah like fuck you have fun. Who Cares I like just like a man sometime? So why don't enjoy dressing like a woman? It's right yeah so I agree with his statement on this. I think everyone should just have to spend a day in the other gender shoes. Yeah or even just like fuck it. Break down the walls. And who gives a shit what you're wearing but back to the ultimate self Maxine Quaye went on to become one of the most influential albums of Arjun Ration- Every music publication hails it as a masterpiece with lyrics and sound woven together to near perfection. It has been put alongside massive attack's blue lines and portis heads dummy as game changers in the electronic world an Oggi's of trip hop and Jeff again. I said like the main three right there. Yeah this is kind of like a a solid foundation for what was to come with electronic and trip hop everything exactly. It really changed music. Yeah Maxine Quaye. Wasn't the only product of collaboration between. Tricky Martina working together on the debut. They began romantic relationship that resulted in a prager. Nancy Pre Gannon aunt. Did she have starch masks? She had so many stars asks who one month. After the album's release their daughter Meena. Maisy was born. The couple didn't last long though that they would still co-parenting champs even if it did result in a lot of arguments on the road they had Meena and brought her along with them and tried. I mean they really did. They meet they gave it the good old college try. They try to give her as fun. A childhood as they could and with a successful album comes the fame the fame that tricky categorically was with yes he was interested in making new sounds in turning hip hop on its head but being flashy rich. Just wasn't something he was going after. Yeah in an ideal world for tricky he would just make music releasing get some money to survive and keep making music but because of his rising popularity he found less and less time for actually making music and I assume he was a lot more popular a lot more in the public eye in the UK in Europe and very much. So I guess around this time he was getting a little bit of exposure in the US. But not not as much as fat boy slim or fuck in Moby fucking moby at least appreciate fat boy slim yet. We can have the conversation some other type of funding there because like moby But yeah I I guess for some people even for people who know tricky. It would be a little bit difficult to understand like wait. What fame like who is right. Who was trying to tail him in stock him in the leg. Bees in his face all the time trying to get you know a good story it was definitely very UK based yeah. He has plenty of stories about being on billboards over there and people seeing him and seeing the billboard right next to him and being like oh. Wow you're famous yet. I guess you should In terms of famous should parallel him to movie. Then you know what I mean for better just in terms of just can't music credibility all just in terms of fame blake imagine. He's getting the same amount of fame in the UK. In Europe that Moby is in America. Right that's fair right. Yeah definitely. She's drawing parallels to write. Your hair allows not comparison. You bring up a good point. I feel like a lot of. Us listeners are thinking tricky. I don't really think he goes. Yeah but he doesn't have an influence over here yet he does even if you don't see even if it's not in your face yeah. I get into it. But they're the he definitely had an influence on certain artists certain movies and all the Shit. He was asked about touring he was humanly against it. When he toured with massive attack he hated it. He found going on stage with a couple of turntables to be a really hollow experience. Also not very conducive to somebody. Who's making music like? He is exactly. I don't think he's a very genuine artist and feels like any sort of shortcut. Is Misleading. Yeah and it's also much more difficult. I think for a DJ tour than it is for Rochman Detour. Yeah it's not organic. It's not something you can just go. And do. I have the time to press buttons on a computer and just queuing up a track that already exists right and I assume that most of their shows are one offs. They're not it's not. They're not touring they're just doing guest spot. You're doing clubs. You're not doing a monster right. That's what I'm yeah well. His manager suggested why not try it with a band and even though tricky was initially thinking the idea was a little crazy he gave it a shot and he actually ended up loving it. That's interesting right. This made him one of the first electronic acts to go out there with a live band and keeping up with his simplistic nature he specifically did not want anyone who looked cool instead he wanted quote old Chubby dudes ban was just these old Chubby dudes. That's hilarious what anyone who looks cool or hipsters or anything he just wanted guys is in the Biz for awhile. Didn't want any anybody wearing Jane goes on his stage. Thank God he's like Dad Jeans and flannel please. Yeah No pook shows no. Jank owes no crazy spiky hair. Don't none of that. I just want Nice Fro. No t shirts that say can't sleep. Clowns will eat me. Nothing like that. No hot topic over here now. He'll audit like nine out of every ten stories we cover success in the music Biz also mentioned uptake and alcohol and drugs. Oh really yeah. Turns out life on the road tarred. Hey we're still going strong with no heroin are we are? We still gonNA keep that going. Tricky was already a bit of a stoner. Okay now he was drinking more and taking pills and doing cocaine to get past the exhaust okay. So we're at coke but good news. No no way no way as you say. In addition to not being a big fan of the fame he hated the popularity. His music garnered. This is rug into some of the. Us stuff And went from being this strange. Different sound to becoming mainstream heared other artists copying his sound. He heard ads for movies with soundtracks. It sounded like his music talks about going to see a quinton. He went to see Pulp Fiction okay. And the ADS before Pulp Fiction. Were USING MUSIC. That sounded insanely similar to his in the trailers and he was so annoyed with us. Sounds about right. This was his because he's not gaining that success in the US but but article brother sure are chemical well. It's like even American artists American filmmakers. They're getting that popular. It's what immediately off of his fucking music chemical brothers was pretty huge in the US at that time. So it chemical brothers honestly. I respect the chemical brothers a lot more than I respect other boats leanest other than can moby guys mopey is legit bottom of the barrel. He's awful were sky as a person. He's awful Oh I do hate episode on Moby would love to do a hate episode mobile. Let's do that. Let's just born at. How bonus episode like if you like Moby told us into our boat we episode can be called the get the hate out series. Oh my God just like fucking rail against these pieces shit. Allow me to give you all my hate on moby. Yeah anyway this played a big part in the creation of a sophomore release so all of this frustration. He felt that he came out with songs. Like those on maxine clay. It wouldn't be different anymore and he would be stuck. Tricky was also in a rare position of power with his record label even though he had released maxine quaye through island records. He didn't have proper contract. How did that how mark was a proper donut? Maybe that's why he's like your proper Dona. I'm not signing a copper track. No proper donuts don't get proper contracts. So when they went to create one he told his manager that it needed to state that for any reason. Island doesn't WANNA release one of his albums. Hey could take it to any label he wanted. Yeah and now that he was so successful they would be foolish to say anything. But yes kinda. Yeah all of this contributed to the sound here on the nineteen ninety six album. Nearly God. The title came from an interview. He did where he was asked what it felt like to be God. Well nearly God Okay Interviewers. I think it was at emi cheese. Of course it's enemy and this album is definitely experimental. There's less structure but still has this feeling of a carefully crafted piece of work. It heavily relies on its many guest singers including an obvious return of Martina But we also see the Terry Hall Neneh Cherry and Bjork as a few standard. Oh and once again. A Little Romance bloomed in the studio when tricky began to Bjork for several months. I can only imagine how that courtship Wentz well in the end he wasn't in a good place to be in relationship and even your called him out on that she would tell him..

"Hey Yeah this speech is my recital. I think it's very vital to arrive. That's right on time. It's tricky is the town it's tricky to rock overrun to Rutta around. That's right on time. It's Okay. It's tricky tricky. We're not talking about Randy. And now we are at all like this has nothing to do with Rod DMC. This is the SOG tricky. It's just because we probably both have this song stuck in her head for the last week. What do you think yes? I have had this song stuck in my head a lot because it's an earworm. It is an earworm of song but also I kind of WanNa learn all the lyrics so we can do that Kariuki now. Oh yeah no I mean I already. I got him so I mean there on screen so yeah but I don't know like the cadence of Oh. Yeah Yeah now listen to it all week. We'll be good for Kariuki. I say this is a. This is a solid karaoke hit.

I am Maggie and I'm taken to drink sorry I'm Ashley and we're hosts and we are bringing you sweet treats from the world's music every week. Yeah and this week we're going obscure I I don't WanNa see obscure but I guess obscure kind of but also he's been around for a very long time. He is insanely influential. And you probably don't even know who he is. Yeah which is unfortunate again. I think we're just tapping into more for black history month of these artists that are super important to the world of music and very influential. And you just don't know. Oh my God like rap. Wouldn't be what it is today. If it wasn't for this artist ELECTRONICA wouldn't be what it is today. If it was not better or worse it depends on how you look at it. Yeah yeah either way either way is what it is you can definitely think this dude for it. Yeah Yeah today. We are talking about the musical artist. Tricky hence the song in the beginning gas and heads maybe some confusion maybe some have when they see the title of this. Are they just going to spend an hour and a half talking about the song? Turkey we probably could but no. I feel like there's not that much set song. It's just a fucking jam. Yeah but yes so. We are talking about this artist. Tricky you might be wondering who he is for some of you. If I say massive attack maybe that will jog something up for you. He was definitely heavily involved in the beginnings of band. That group also another incredibly influential band. That only really gets talked about in vary like obscure listrik holes and Shit like that. Yeah and then people will remain at our heard from fi but then again a lot of our UK and listeners and European listeners are probably hearing us say tricky and massive attack thinking. Yeah no I know who that is. I'm not an idiot but Americans are dumb they already it's and they don't really look into this show. We don't get as much music as we should over here. Yeah we get a lot of garbage hold on a garbage hold on a boat rock still still on my part rock over here for some reason he still really into venture seven belts so seven. Yeah my favorite band. There's so memorable terrible guys. Seven folderol good bad. You're such a hot topic band but LENA LATE. Two thousands hot topic bands like the the bad the real bad topic hot topic years. Yeah Yeah we talk about that topic here. When hot topic discovered the nightmare before Christmas? That's when everything just went fucking downhill and years after the movie comes out there like Hey Jamie see this week makes so much money off of this. We've really straight off topic hot topic. We paid hot right about hot topic. Yeah please talk about tricky because fuck hot topic and we should definitely talk about the beer drinker. Hit US harder than we thought. I don't know actually four percent. It's hitting me harder than I thought it would. I had half an a snickers ice cream bar before we started drinking breakfast for you know that was lunch. Okay so this week. We are drinking from single cut boo. Smith's Boozman looseness. There would be a great like just a really great title for a brewery. That does all Halloween themed boost Smith. Spoo- Smith Saul. Yeah let's you know what we're done guys neck podcast where we're going to start a buoy. Don't you take that idea? That's all the copyrights we also you so fast. Always this is recorded. We HAVE PROOF. We have proof. You stole it from US. Anyway. We're drinking. Shyness is nice which is a tart. It's fine it's honestly like most single cut assign stuff we've had. It's just fine. This is fine. It's not particularly tart but it's not overwhelmingly. Ip a what we did have a very inland discussion before according about what it really tastes like and it really reminiscent of a flavor of when you use half of the frozen concentrate can you don't use the full can because you're trying to save money which they use the same amount of water in which is really watered down or feel like probably a lot of the younger folk that listen to us probably don't know what the concentrate is. They make frozen concentrate anymore. I don't really see it very much at all. I remember going to the grocery store and there are cases upon cases a fruit. Concentrate that you would make Wella's Walsh's was the jam it was so I'm no get out. Get out get the fuck out of here no it. That was the cheap way to make orange juice juice as you got the concentrating dollars. Fifty cents fifty cents a dollar. Whatever for a little can of frozen concentrate our for four. I think there are like twenty five cents. There were only ones you guys know. Do you remember he wants to go? Get the like the little clear powders. Really Twenty ten cents. I think yeah they were like ten cents lower lake ten for a dollar usually Gillis. Wow we're not. We're not interesting to stay on. This tastes like very watered-down Orange juice concentrate. Yes you would get frozen in a tube. Yes I had to kind of stretch with this one. Like as far as building with it but China's nice you will soon discover that due to tricky shyness as a person it helped him cultivate the artists. He became yeah. I kind of feel like we're this cut. We're getting into some deep cuts with our beer choices. I mean arguably that's a single cut does anyway in before I really get into it. I would like to cite my source. Most of everything. I'm giving you guys I found. Actually it's nice. Tricky is very interview. -able he likes to talk so it was easy to find interviews but also. I read his biography. Hell is round the corner and this was co written with Andrew. Perry so he did have a little help. But I'm really want to highly suggest this biography to anyone. Listening Eighty is really interesting. He's a great writer He writes like he's talking to you. Which is something I enjoy. He has a crazy interesting story and there are some things that I wanted to get into. But I just didn't have the time so please pick up this book if you ever see it yet I really WanNa read it. Yeah there's some really good stories their stuff with David Bowie in there that I wasn't able to so that could be more stories for episode on Weird Shit David Bowie did our eventual spinoff podcast. Weird Shit though. We did basically yeah. We basically his life. Yeah but yeah he Because you know. British artists recognize Yeah it helps. I guess now is the time I'm going to get into the story of two Ricki Hall Radi before I do get started though on the life of tricky. I want to give a little background into the musical genre known as trip hop because really he's one of the fathers of the Stranraer. Please tell me more. I feel like you don't tell me more trip hop is not easy to describe. I just tried to do it the other night. And it's very hard it is it is a blending of hip hop and Electronica in hints of Jazz are Embi House soul psychedelic kind of a little bit of everything. There is a very experimental element to it with in its music as well as the visuals overall all experimental. It's style of music that maybe not everyone is familiar with but its influence reaches throughout most genres of all the music. We hear today after this episode. If you go back and listen to artists like gorillas back Madonna Bjork radiohead Queens. The Stone Age Janet Jackson even the Flaming Lips. Oh yeah our favorite favorite but you can hear hints of trip hop in. Yeah absolutely them. I don't listen to electronic so maybe I'm far off base here but I feel like trip hop is the most easily digestible of the sub genres. I'll say in house can be most commercialized yet. And they're the ones that are most commercialized. That artists like Madonna and stuff like that will seek out people that have experienced in those genres. Yeah and bring them in and put that kind of influence into their music so that the masses will hear it. All of those musicians can thank the trip. Hop Movement of the Ninety S for pushing the envelope of sound and tricky was at the forefront. Whether or not he meant to be this isn't what I would call a classic underdog story. It may just be a story of being incredibly lucky throughout your life and tricky is actually the first to admit that but luck are not his ingenuity. Artistry cannot be denied. Tricky was born Adrian. Nicholas Matthews Thaws on January twenty seventh nineteen sixty eight. That's such a generic name but like so many with so many names right age. I don't know Adrian's Kinda Fun. That's a good name Adrian. He is the son of Roy. Thaws a Jamaican man and maxine Quaye. Who was Anglo Guyanese? So her family mixed Guyanese in English British. I should Throughout his childhood being mixed rate race would play a big part in Turkey becoming who he is today while wouldn't be inclined to say either. His parents had a musical influence on him. They both had some artistry in their backgrounds. Roy worked on the studio seventeen sound system with his father is one of the best known in England at the time and nicknamed Tarzan. The.

"So yeah, that was a huge thing. But when I was a kid, I absolutely obsessed album out work and really took it seriously. I have a really indelible memory of the maxing. I never had a pronounce the tricky album. The Mexico. Maxine Quaye. That's how I say it. Yeah, these permanently been stamped on me. I think that that album cover in particular I was, I guess I was probably fifteen or sixteen when that came out. And I remember flipping thrown saying that photo of him and Martina Topley bird where he's like wearing a bride's gown, and she's wearing a suit. And then there's a photo on the back cover of this site, we'd giraffe print like ATV kind of thing. And in my mind, I thought God tricky drives around in a bride's dress in this truck in is humid in London. Somewhere like to me, the amount work was very much just a documentation of what those people's lives where there was no artifice at all in the way I sort. So it was hugely important to me. And I think pre internet, you know that sorta time pre internet. It was often the only window like I didn't read music magazines or anything that, so it was literally, the only exposure have to a lot of musicians was pouring over that album out work. So it's sort of filled out the way I thought that university and and then definitely informed the way I listen to the music too. And Mark, did you find yourself gravitating to any records just for the visual content of their cover, and have you ever made any missteps in the record? Yeah.

But for me, it feels like I like to keep the strong coverage Rin with text because when I see the stuff I'm blown away on, not just type other people get something back from it as well. There was enough indication from when the came out the people were getting from it, which is also a great, which Spurs us onto guy. Well, it's St. some more of this. We start working on stuff. Before you even have music. Sometimes all to me. That's why that felt so strong and interesting and compelling for maters on as well.
