Tricky - Murder Weapon: Back with a bang

When I first heard this on BBC 6 Music (saved!) I couldn't believe Tricky was behind it. I remember him best as one of the founding fathers of trip hop back in the mid nineties, setting the bar with his album Maxinquaye and the tune I know him best for, Black Steel.

This time he reworks a 1991 dancehall number by Echo Minott which in turn uses the riff from the 1961 Peter Gunn Theme.

A couple of tough-talking Glock-related lyrics later and it's evident Tricky hasn't lost his touch, even if he did go off on a bit of a tangent with those movie roles.

I'm expecting the album to be equally impressive.
