Has Banksy finally been revealed as Robert del Naja of Massive Attack? It's been rumoured for a while, but now the musician Goldie has *possibly* accidentally outed the elusive graffiti-icon during a Distraction Pieces podcast interview. 

SO! Is Banksy really Robert "3D" del Naja of Massive Attack? Is he? Is he? 

This Robert del Naja?

I listen to a lot of fast music while painting - old school rap, synthpop, goth industrial, 90's electronica - and Massive Attack is always in heavy rotation. If this is true, the news is pretty sweet.

If it remains a mystery, even better.
