This week I met with author and journalist Melissa Chemam to discuss her book ‘Out of the Comfort Zone: From Bristol to Massive Attack.‘ Melissa looks to Bristol’s social and political history as a way of understanding its artistic output. We talked about the culture that spawned the music of Massive Attack, Portishead and Tricky, as well as the street art of Banksy.
