Manchester International Festival - Massive Attack V Adam Curtis: Massive Attack + Elizabeth Fraser + Horace Andy
A new show in collaboration with Felix Barrett, Es Devlin and UnitedVisualArtists.
" A collective hallucination" - Robert del Naja
"A musical entertainment about the power of illusion and the illusion of power" - Adam Curtis
One of the most innovative bands that the UK has ever produced, responsible for the sound of the summer, in 1991 with the release of the critically acclaimed Blue Lines. The second album Protection with collaborations with Tracey Thorn and Horace Andy was an even bigger success; both albums have sold well over a million copies each. The third album Mezzanine was a much darker affair and features the vocals of Liz Fraser (Cocteau Twins) and Sara Jay.

Elizabeth Fraser is a Scottish singer best known as the vocalist for the pioneering alternative rock group Cocteau Twins. Described by critic Jason Ankeny as 'an utterly unique performer whose swooping, operatic vocals relied less on any recognizable language than on the subjective sounds and textures of verbalized emotions,' Fraser's distinctive singing earned much critical praise. She was once described as 'the voice of God.' Fraser's singing veers between semi-comprehensible lyrics and abstract mouth music; fans have oft-debated the inspiration and meaning of her lyrics, but over the years she has been reluctant to discuss such topics. Fraser has a soprano vocal range.

Hailing from Kingston, Jamaica, reggae veteran Horace 'Sleepy' Andy has been producing nothing but the finest music in the industry for over thirty years earning him legendary status both in Jamaican music and reggae worldwide. His highly distinctive, unique voice was unleashed in 1970 with his first release 'Oh Lord, Why Lord'. He went on to release a plethora of classic tracks throughout the 70s and 80s including 'Money, Money', 'Skylarking' and 'Natty Dread A Weh She Want' to name a few. Collaborating with Bristol trip-hop stars Massive Attack in the 90s gained him recognition and respect outside the reggae scene. His latest release 'Rise Up' is a collaboration with Mad Professor featuring Sly & Robbie, d'n'b partners Mafia & Fluxy with vocal arrangements from Knowledge.
