TRICKY with Cold Lips' editor Kirsty Allison
TRICKY IS THE OLD SCHOOL OVERLORD OF BRITISH HIP-HOP - his new book Hell Is Around The Corner is out now - and it is splendid. It's rare to meet iconoclasts on the level of Tricky - born Adrian Thaws - mother dying of suicide/epilepsy at 4 - and it’s an honour to learn and be infected by people like this. I’m a huge fan, and I remember first meeting him for DJMag in a flat, opposite Sketch, he answered the door in a white dressing gown, and I was in a bluesman palace - with as much dope as a Howard Marks'  green room.  The other time I interviewed him was for the BBC, he took me on a golf buggy all around the back of a festival before flaming up a dressing room, and doing a hypnotising performance on the level of Iggy Pop.  You can read the feature I wrote on kirstyallison.com. BUT GET ON THE BOOK. HERE IS HIS COMMS CENTRE: http://www.trickysite.com/
