So we are down to about 34 days until the 3rd Portishead album hits shelves and I have to say I can't remember a time when I was more excited about a new album...well, it was probably for Radiohead's Kid A.
I remember watching Saturday Night Live in 1998 and being pleasantly surprised by Portishead's performance and the genre they championed, trip hop. I fell in love instantly and along with The Chemical Brothers and Prodigy, they were a huge part of my late 90's personal soundtrack. Loren Michaels doesn't let SNL clips on YouTube so I can't post that specific performance of "Only You" but here is one from the Roseland Ballroom.
