Celebrating 25 years of Blue Lines.
Unfinished: The Making of Massive Attack will air tonight (6 September) on BBC One West.
Update: You can now watch the documentary in full here.
The documentary tells the story of how Bristol DJs Daddy G and Andrew Vowles and graffiti artist-turned-rapper Robert Del Naja met as members of partying collective The Wild Bunch before forming Massive Attack. It traces how the city’s sound-system culture, punk roots and graffiti art shaped the ‘Bristol sound’ and the crew’s 1991 debut Blue Lines, which remains one of the landmark full-lengths of the period.
Narrated by actor Paul McGann – who was part of the city’s creative community in the 90s – the film also includes contributions from The Wild Bunch’s Milo Johnson, Mark Stewart of The Pop Group, Roni Size, producer Neil Davidge, amongst others.
Unfinished: The Making of Massive Attack will broadcast tonight on BBC One (West) at 10.45pm and then will be made available via iPlayer, Crack Magazine reports.
