Same Archive, Different Box: Portishead

Beth Gibbons and Portishead in concert at Glasgow Barrowlands, in Scotland, in 1997.

Portishead were riding high on their success. Their ‘Dummy’ album was everywhere. Their tours were infrequent, and somehow I got a pass for this rare Glasgow concert. Not even sure if it was an assignment, probably not. The gig was dark and their were twinkiling lights at the back of the stage. Beth Gibbons, spotting me down in the photographers/security pit, gave me the ‘finger’ for no apparent reason other than I was a photographer down in the pit. Charming.

I kind of went off the idea of buying their CDs after that.

And in todays Guardian, in an interview, it seems Portishead are back.
