Following Geoff Barrow of Portisheadâ€™s rant against Mark Ronson, the re-mixer supremo has posted an equally acidic retort on his Myspace.
Obviously offended by Ronsonâ€™s re-working of classic tunes on the Version album, and his audacity to re-mix Bob Dylan, Barrow wrote on the bandâ€™s Myspace: â€œit takes an amazing talent to turn decent songs into shit funky supermarket muzakâ€.
Not one to take it lying down, Ronson responds on his own blog, stating, â€œIn reference to your blog insulting my â€˜muzakâ€™, grow the fuck up and go back to doing what you did in the early 90's--making monumental music.â€
He then adds: â€œThen maybe, again, your music will be popular enough to be played in supermarkets, like it once was.â€
Ouch! Geoff, we await your reaction!
