The Bristol Sound...

I moved here in 93. Everyone was talking about Portishead, Tricky, Massive Attack - everyone outside Bristol, that is. The talk was about them representing The Bristol Sound, but (as I remember it), that was bollocks. The band everyone here were going to see was The Moonflowers, and the soundtrack of the Summer of Bristol 93 was dominated by Miles davis - Amandla, We want Miles and particularly his last album Doo Wop. I'm sure jazz purists hated it - it is a commercial, accessible album with hip hop beats and raps that frankly were a bit Kenny Everett, but it all hung together really well and was threaded through with that trumpet...
