These pair of vids of Portishead’s Adrian Utley circa 2012 just talking about and fiddling with his collection of analog synths are fun.

Portishead - Half Day Closing (1997)

ALGIERS, A BRILLIANT BAND THAT I DISCOVERED RECENTLY BECAUSE THEY’RE PRODUCED BY ADRIAN UTLEY (Portishead) AND WITH A NAME LIKE THAT THEY COULDN’T HAVE BEEN ANY MORE INTRIGUING POSTED THIS ON TWITTER OMG THEM ?? WITH MASSIVE ATTACK ON THE SAME RECORD!!! 

ALSO MY BOYS MIGHT BE BACK SOON! Though I am busy with my internship, I really hope they won’t annouce anything in Europe before like december ^^

Portishead

An English musical group formed in 1991 from Bristol. The band consists of Geoff Barrow, Beth Gibbons, and Adrian Utley. 

Something about this song makes me feel all fuzzy and sophisticated in the inside. After my cousin played a gig at an Auckland bar, I got hooked onto his style of music and he compelled me to listen to Portishead as the band was influential to his mates.

Portishead!!! Not a ton of interviews with these dudes, many knowledge jewels dropped within. If you haven’t heard the Rustin Mann album you are sadly remiss, as any mind-meld between Portishead peoples and Talk Talk personnel is bound to be perfect, which it is. I just can’t figure out why the one dude is rocking a Hoboken shirt. Perhaps the secret of Portishead is that they are all actually Ryder University dudebrodians who whip the ice luge in Hoboken on Thursday nights??!? “Mysteries” indeed.
