Retracing "the history of Massive Attack and their relationship with Bristol"
First announcement of my book release in the UK, by Crack Magazine, "independent platform for contemporary culture":
A new book will trace the history of Massive Attack and their relationship with Bristol
A new book tracing the “story of Massive Attack, through their music, art and influences” will be released this April.
Massive Attack: A Bristol Story was first published in French in October 2016 but this is its first release in English. It is written by French journalist and writer Melissa Chemam.
According to a press release, the book is “dedicated to the history of the band Massive Attack and their relationship with their own city, Bristol, which shaped their greatness and uniqueness.” The book was written across three years and features interviews with 3D, Tricky, Adrian Utley, Neil Davidge, Mark Stewart, Sean Cook and others.
The book is published on 09 April 2018 through Tangent Books. Pre-order via Waterstones here.
