Here’s Part Two of our highly entertaining recent chat with Tricky.

Tricky’s story is well told. A kingmaking appearance on Massive Attack’s Blue Lines; 1995’s peerless debut Maxinquaye; trip-hop touchstone Pre-Millennium Tension; and a string of unpredictable albums tilting from punk to reggae and back again. His latest album, False Idols, arrives on his new label of the same name, and finds him sounding at his most focused since the mid 1990s.

In the second instalment of our two-part interview, Tricky opens up about saying sorry to Björk, unwittingly collaborating with a gay icon, and just what the hell was going on during that infamous Glastonbury appearance with Beyonce. For Tricky’s account of his fall-out with Domino, his views on Margaret Thatcher and a deeply bizarre meeting with Katie Price, head to Part One.
