Did they actually dislike each other? I've heard they fell out over Bjork and came to blows, but I've also heard they didn't and it was just something they cooked up as a pisstake.

'as long as your humble, I'll let you be the king of jungle' says something I think... But I've read both their autobiogs and I don't think either of them mentions the other. Don't think they were all that bothered but maybe Goldie said something to tricky? For tricky to write that line I mean

Time has been cruel to timeless I think. It's got classic moments but a lot of cheese. Whereas maxinquaye is an out and out classic.

I'm not really into either album tbh. Whenever I listen to something to do with Goldie, it's Rufige Kru. I don't listen to Tricky at all.

What’s interesting about the 90’s is that it’s best music and its most embarrassing music are both made of the same ingredients (rap, dub, rave).

So it’s funny that jungle can be my favourite music ever whereas massive attack is excruciatingly embarrassing.
Barty chimes in.

I agree that Goldie has the odd really good single, I do like him, but tricky has more to him. Some of his lyrics, and his method of delivery, are insane.

Tricky made a quixotic, unique, one off personal album.

Goldie was a key instigator, perhaps the key instigator of an entire scene. From jumping on the mixing desk on 5 E's while making Terminator with 4hero, extracting some of the best work from Playford and Dillinja, discovering the likes of Source Direct and Hidden Agenda, bringing jungle to the mainstream with the sheer force of his will. He was Wiley before it was possible to be a Wiley.

This is like Godzilla vs Leonard Cohen.
