And you might ask yourself: where have I heard this voice before? Well, if you are familiar with the work of Tricky, then you’ve heard the vocal stylings of Martina Topley-Bird. Her first solo, Quixotic, was reswizzled and put out in the U.S. as Anything. No idea why. Maybe the record company thought we couldn’t handle the big scary Q word. Or…something. You’re best off getting the MP3 version, which goes for $9.99.
This is a lovely little stripped down jam version of “Too Tough to Die,” live from Montreux back in 2004. Halfway through the week, keep the pedal to the metal and the thing to the floor.
