Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Massive Attack's first U.S. TV appearance...

Massive Attack came to Los Angeles this week to play two nights at the Wiltern and, more importantly, play live on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel to promote the new album "Heligoland." This was Massive's first U.S. TV appearance...that's a big deal considering Kimmel gets about about 1.7 million late night viewers (not that many, but they are that key 18-34 year old demographic.)

Luckily, I got some tix to see to see my favourite Bristolians play this historic set in my Hollywood backyard.  Here are three videos of the seen by TV viewers and fans in the parking lot-come-concert stage. Can you spot me? :)

May be Kimmel is a M.A. fan or secretly he's a bit subversive. After all, did he notice the first song was "United Snakes!" And Kimmel  must've noticed the bright ticker board flashing in the background: "ALCOHOL ENTACTOGEN XYLPIPERAZINE" and other horrid chemicals surrounding us. Thanks to Bud Light for bringing us this concert series. :) 

"United Snakes"

"Teardrop" with Teri Hatcher ;)

This fan video of  "Teardrop" was shot behind me as I was at the front.
