Massive Attack Tickets - Beautiful Blood Clots in the Music IndustrySomething has to be said about the deep, rhythmic, easy listening sounds of an urban beat -- like blood clots, how they form and collect and sit silently. Only these blood clots weren't horribly damaging to the human heart. Rather, the sensual hip-hop outfit called Massive Attack helped out the heart a great deal. With the likes of Andrew 'Mushroom' Vowles and Grand 'Daddy G' Marshall meeting up with Robert del Naja (known as '3D' in the music industry), Massive Attack was born in the year of 1987 to hail that fresh look in hip-hop styles and urban R&B sounds. Here's the skinny on them:
Massive Attack Tickets - The Music of Massive AttackWhen they released their first single, 'Daydreaming,' obviously they had something going. The year was 1990, and the single featured the siner Shara Nelson and Tricky. The resulting sound of the single stunned music lovers everywhere, as it had an instant appeal. In 1991, Massive Attack actually released their debut album: Blue Lines. A second album rose up from the ashes as well, called Protection, featuring some powerful singles like 'Karmacoma,' 'Sly,' and the title track itself. With artists like Nellee Hooper from his Soul II Soul project and, of course, Tricky working the rap flow again, the work done was phenomenal. They also employed the sultry vocals of Nicolette and Everything But the Girl's Tracey Thorn for the album. A beautiful piece of work. It wasn't, though, until the third album came out -- Mezzanine -- in 1998 that Massive Attack really started to come out, featuring a single called 'Teardrops' that ended up in the intro for the popular TV medical drama House. Another single from the album was 'Inertia Creeps,' and it certainly crept into people's hearts while sleeping away the cares of the day with that sexy urban beat.
Massive Attack Tickets -- The Sound and Style of Massive AttackThat's one sultry blood clot in the ears. And Massive Attack wasn't pulling any punches. Not one band ever sounded like them, with that deep, slow, deliberate, sexy sound. It had that vintage quality that reminded everyone of the kind of music that existed countless years ago and for years to come.
