I love Massive Attack - their dark dismal Bristollian songs really fit my mood a lot of the time on the Tube. Trouble was by the time I got around to booking a ticket to see them, the ones on the Southbank Centre's site had sold out and you can currently only get them online at about £98 a ticket. I like them, but don't like them THAT much!
However lots of people they have written songs with or have performed with, will also be at Meltdown and I managed to snag some reasonably priced tickets to see Terry Callier. He's a real soul legend and was mates with Curtis Mayfield. He's collaborated with Massive Attack and Beth Orton (who also sings fairly miserable Tube sound tracks & collaborates with the Chemical Brothers & William Orbit) and his voice makes me feel like crying (in a really good way).
So me and two girly mates - Brian Pigeon's PR agent, Lisa and Lyz from Life with an Accent are going to see him on the 20th June. We have one spare ticket, so if you want to sit next to three geeky bloggy chicks you're welcome to get in touch with us. We're looking for around £22 for the ticket.
