    Massive Attack slam Pete Tong in a lengthy Facebook post


    OzClubbers

    Massive Attack have blasted BBC1 radio host Pete Tong for failing to ask permission to cover their track ‘Unfinished Business’ in his Ibiza Classics show, labelling the tour a “nostalgia nightmare roadshow”.

    Attack member 3D addressed the longtime Essential Mix host in a blistering post on Facebook, explaining to Tong that ‘Unfinished Business’ is played at their shows in order to raise awareness for the plight of refugees, and money for the UNHCR.

    “When we play that song we display photos of displaced people in refugee camps by the photographer Giles Duley,” 3D wrote. “If you do mean to carry on coining it, why don’t you divide your nightly profit by the number of songs your murder in your set, and hand the total of that one song over to UNHCR…”

    “It would be the least you could do,” the post finishes. Read the full post from the band below.

    Tong has been on the road for most of 2017 with the Ibiza Classics tour, which sees him reimagine dance classics from acts such as Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim, Eric Prydz and Robert Miles.

    He was only just in the country for the tour, playing two shows in Sydney and Melbourne. Watch a snippet of him performing ‘Unfinished Sympathy’ in Leeds a few days ago; he has yet to respond to Massive Attack’s request.
