"Tricky, the musician...damn dude, just damn. "


  

          

earworms.

I had to go play a few tracks of Tricky's first album Maxinquaye which lead to a quick rabbit hole into Tricky's life

BECAUSE

I remembered, "wait up, wasn't Maxinquaye named after his mom who committed suicide when he was a kid?"

YUP.

Then I remembered, "didnt he and Martina Bird have a baby?"

YUP.

So reading through the wiki section I see "Tricky is a father to two daughters. The musician Martina Topley-Bird, who was discovered by Tricky while she was sitting on a wall near his Bristol home, was the mother of one, Mina Mazy (19 March 1995 – 8 May 2019)"

UH.


Then I looked up Mina Mazy to see...that she committed suicide last year.

DAMN.


That is fucking heavy shit. As a dad that shit breaks my heart that my kid could suffer in things I can not fix in ways I cannot help. I can't even imagine what all of that was like for Tricky and Martina.

I've listened to a ton of Tricky over the years but really knew little about him. Wild life and told in a cool way it just needs better editing to prevent stories repeating so many times and keep things interesting.

That ending though. Brutal. Thankful for him sharing his life.

See ya, JAK

Yeah I forgot how amazing his music is.

Came across this article about his production: https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/classic-tracks-tricky-black-steel

And yeah, tragic about his daughter.
