Our Picks
Massive Attack @ Brixton Academy

Thurs, 8 July and Fri, 9th July 2004, 7 p.m., UKP27.50 + fees
Massive Attack's hypnotically slower-but-danceable beats have been going for
20 years, as the band's members were mystifying club audiences in their
native Bristol with their intense and offbeat sound system and DJ sets. Any
bands in the area trying to compete with them had no chance, and as a
consequence, Massive Attack is the biggest act to come out of Bristol. The
band's influence can be seen in the jazzy, bluesy trip-hop tangents of
fellow Bristol act Portishead, but Massive Attack's music embodies so much
more than just blues, jazz and trip-hop. Funk, punk and hip-hop have all
snaked their ways in and out of Massive Attack's repertoire, allowing the
band to grow and evolve, not only with the trends, but to define them as
well. Even if you're not familiar with their more widely known tracks
(Unfinished Sympathy, Teardrop, Inertia Creeps), you're more than likely
familiar with the acid jazz sounds that even with slow beats can have you
moving. (Patrick Garvin) Click here for tickets

Gypsy Kings @ Kenwood House, Hampstead
Sat, 8th August 2004, 7.30 p.m., UKP19.00 + fees
The Gypsy Kings have been purveying their distinctive brand of gypsy flamenco since the 1970s. Following the release of their international hit single Bambole and their platinum-selling debut album, they have dominated the World Music charts, and sold more than 14 million albums worldwide, with a new album released this year. Enjoy a Latin night to remember with the legendary Rumba-Flamenco style of The Gypsy Kings. Click here for tickets
