Portishead - Roads

Portishead is an English magnificent musical group from Bristol. The band is named after the nearby town of the same name. Portishead consists of Geoff Barrow, Beth Gibbons and Adrian Utley while sometimes citing a fourth member Dave McDonald; an engineer on Dummy and Portishead. Their sound is mainly atmospheric and dark.

Portishead formed in Bristol in 1991. Prior to the group's formation, Barrow had worked as a tape operator and song writer. Around the time of Portishead's formation, he had also begun to earn a reputation as a remix producer. Barrow met Beth Gibbons, who had been singing in pubs, in 1991. Over the next few years, the pair began writing music, often with jazz guitarist Adrian Utley.

dear Diatton
every time i come to your blog, i realize you do have an amazing taste in music, Portishead are superb! great quality in music, Dummy is one of my favorite albums of all times

I was very very lucky to see them live at the Coachella Festival in California last year... I was always impressed by Beth Gibbons beautiful voice and how the whole band manage to include her voice to sort of technoish music... but i wasn't prepared to the splendor that is seeing them live!! they were probably one of the best shows I've seen in my life!
