Massive Attack – 08/07/04 – Brixton Academy

Musically pretty good, Horace Andy was brilliant, and whoever it was who sang ‘Teardrop’ (Dot Allison?) did a passable impersonation of Liz Fraser, but it was the lightshow that I remember the most. They plonked two horizontal banks of a hundred or so strobes, one on each side of the stage. They started off with simple, flashing patterns of white light, and with each song upped the intensity, intricacy and the number of colours until by the climax of the gig, they were almost working as a giant video screen with a psychedelic mass of strobe sized pixels. A bizarrely over the top ravey davey gravey sort of a lightshow that was more suited to the Prodigy than to Massive Attack, but it was bloody good though.
