It's like a cross between...

... Ummagumma period Floyd, Joy Division, Tool, Fugazi, Aphex Twin and the Velvet Underground all with a strange ethereal voice layered across the top. This is a good thing.

Being a 37 year old bloke who grew up in Bristol, OF COURSE I was going to buy the new Portishead record on the day of release.


  1. ...and my darling wife the Maz or "she who is far cleverer than I" as she is usually known said to me as I passed HMV yesterday - "Don't buy it - wait for someone else to, then copy it."

    Half an hour later I walk into the shop and what's on the stereo?

  2. that was me, obviously...
