"Thanks for covering one of our songs on your nostalgia nightmare roadshow..."
Massive Attack

Massive Attack's 3D has taken aim at Pete Tong after the DJ included their songs in his new roadshow.

Pete Tong is currently touring the country, with his new roadshow focussing on a personal view of rave culture.

Including some Massive Attack songs in the set, he has drawn the ire of the Bristol legends.

"Thanks for covering one of our songs on your nostalgia nightmare roadshow," opens a statement from 3D. "I don’t recollect you getting in touch to see if we would mind, but for your information: When we play that song we display photos of displaced people in refugee camps by the photographer Giles Duley on the screen to raise awareness for their plight and collect money for UNHCR."

"If you do mean to carry on coining it, why don’t you divide your nightly profit by the number of songs you murder in your set, and hand the total of that one song over to UNHCR.. It would be the least you could do."

Check out the statement below.
