The Insects

Band, *1984 GB, Bristol
Soundtrack and Electronic
A.k.a. Startled Insects

The Bristol-based The Insects are probably best-known for their work with Massive Attack on the ‘Protection’ album. They contributed two tracks -'Karma Coma' and 'Eurochild' to that album and did further work with Tricky, Goldfrapp and various members of Portishead. Around the same time The Insects started writing soundtracks – initially for the BBC Natural History Unit based in Bristol, winning an Emmy Award along the way for the score to ‘Life at the Edge’. Their portfolio now includes soundtracks for various TV series and feature films.
