News of the week, nicely arriving just before the end of a full, complicated, rich and astonishing year:
Update in August 2018 -> End of 2018
This book is dedicated to the history of the band Massive Attack and to their relationship with their home town of Bristol, a city built on the wealth generated by the slave trade. As a port Bristol was also an arrival point for immigrants to the UK, most notably the "Windrush generation" from the Caribbean in the 1950s.
Her book examines the influences of the founding members of Massive Attack – 3D, Daddy G and Mushroom – their collaborations, inner tensions and politics, as well as the way they opened the door for other Bristol musicians and artists including Banksy.
