Massive Attack take aim at Pete Tong for covering 'Unfinished Sympathy'

They're not fans of his "nostalgia nightmare roadshow"...

3D (who may or may not be Banksy!) has taken social media aim at Pete Tong whose current Ibiza Classics set includes a re-working of 'Unfinished Sympathy', which is not at all to their taste for the reasons outlined below.

The message was gleefully RT-ed by superstar Manchester DJ Dave Haslam who says: "Massive Attack - yes yes yes."

We suspect that this one will run and run...

Live With Me

Another A-list act returning to the scene after a notable absence – three whole years, in the Bristol band’s case. Dare we hope that they’ve spent this time creating something as mesmerizing as ‘Teardrop’ or ‘Unfinished Symphony’? Sadly ‘Live With Me’ doesn’t quite make that league, even though it’s as laidback as they come, with vocal goodness from folk/jazz legend Terry Callier and a whole string section to boot. But no, my crystal ball has already seen the future and says this won’t go down in history as one of their finest moments. Although, it’s on their forthcoming best of album, so technically, I’m already wrong.
