Massive Attack’s “Blue Lines” hybrid of soul, reggae, jazz and slow burnin’ grooves is a club and post-rave come-down classic album. It arose out of the Bristol underground dance scene spearheaded by The Wild Bunch and in turn, was the predecessor to albums such as DJ Shadow’s “Endtroducing” and Portishead’s “Dummy”. Read more about the album here.

Join us to first listen to music that either inspired or was relevant to this LP such as Billy Cobham, Tom Scott and William DeVaughn followed by the story behind the making of the album. Then the lights go down, the volume goes up and we play the album from beginning to end on vinyl on our audiophile hi-fi. Listening guidelines apply.
