Bio[Edit this profile]
Massive Attack are a British music duo from Bristol, UK, considered to be progenitors of the genre known as trip hop, as well as effectively being a wider collective including other musicians that they assemble. Originally, DJ's Grantley (Grant) Marshall (Daddy G), Andrew Vowles (Mushroom) and painter-turned-MC Robert Del Naja (3D) met as members of The Wild Bunch, one of the first homegrown soundsystems in Britain and a dominant force in the early 1980s Bristolian club scene. Starting out as a spin-off production trio in 1988, with their independently-released song, "Any Love", sung by falsetto-voiced singer-songwriter Carlton McCarthy, they later signed to Circa Records, in 1990. Circa became a subsidiary of (and was later subsumed by) Virgin Records, which in turn was acquired by EMI.
