"TRICKY left Traumatised by 9/11"


British rapper/producer TRICKY was so traumatised by the 9/11 terrorist attacks in America, he was unable to come up with any new music for several years.

The artist, who mixes rock, hip-hop and pop in his music, blames the harrowing 2001 incident for the long hiatus between his 2003 album Vulnerable and his new release Knowle West Boy, which hits U.K. stores next week (07Jul08).
He says, "I put on (the) TV and saw the plane crashing into the building (World Trade Center). I built up a spliff, smoked it, and went back to bed.

"I knew things were going to change then. 9/11 is probably the main reason I didn't release an album for five years."
