Hell Is Round the Corner


I was never interested in being the richest dude on the planet. My attitude was, I’m gonna turn music upside down. I’m gonna make a sound that nobody’s heard before.‘ The autobiography of one of the most original artists to emerge from the UK in the past 30 years.

Tricky is one of the most original music artists to emerge from the UK in the past 30 years. His signature technique - layered, eerie, downtempo hip-hop coupled with deep, questioning lyrics - took the UK by storm in the early 1990s and was part of the sound that defined the post-rave generation. This unique, no-holds barred autobiography is not only a portrait of an incredible artist - it is also a gripping slice of social history packed with hair-raising anecdotes and voices from the margins of society. Tricky examines how his creativity has helped him find a different path to that of his relatives, some of whom w ere bare-knuckle fighters and gangsters, and how his mother’s suicide has had a lifelong effect on him, both creatively and psychologically. From the Bronx to Berlin, via Paris and LA, Tricky has continued to push himself in new directions as a performer.

With his unique heritage and experience, his story will be one of the most talked-about music autobiographies of the decade.
