One of my favorite bands this weekend. Portishead live at the Glastonbury Festival 1998 by way of our friends at BBC6 Music (who you need to have bookmarked and on at all times). Portishead are probably one of the most influential bands to come out of the UK. Along with the likes of Radiohead and Massive Attack, have reshaped music from the mid-1990's forward, bringing a whole new dimension and certainly a whole new experience seeing them in a live setting.
The good news is, Portishead are in the studio, right now (probably today) working on a new album which should be out next year and no doubt a tour will be on the horizon.
But until then, here they are for some weekend listening.
Nights At The Roundtable with Massive Attack tonight and a track probably familiar to a lot of people, but still pretty unforgettable - Paradise Circus (featuring Hope Sandoval) - (Gui Boratto remix) Read more...
