massive attack -heligoland

Slightly late on this... but new one from Massive Attack; Heligoland, features guest vocals from Damon Albarn, Hope Sandoval, Martina Topley-Bird, Guy Garvey and Tunde Adebimpe. Long time cohort Horace Andy makes a return alongside Massive Attack founding members Robert Del Naja and Grant Marshall. Bit dark, like it used to be...

Song below is Paradise Circus; fan made video (created with excerpts from The Fall) as the official video is interesting yes but vaguely nsfw.



This track and Girl I Love You hitting all the Massive notes for me. I'm betting OMIL has bought the triple vinyl gatefold edition already... oink.

I always thought The Fall and The Cell were more apt for music video visuals anyway.

Strictly vintage vinyl purchases now.

Pub quiz trivia corner! I've got a vinyl copy of their first album (with bonus outer envelope sleeve, natch) which was credited simply to 'Massive'; same with their early 12" singles.

Legend has it, they dropped the 'Attack' due to Bush Snr's little excursion in Iraq...
