Oh Portishead, I love thee...Beth would understand me...we'd sit around my table drinking cups of tea...I'd pull out a little Casio keyboard every now and then and show her "row, row, row your boat" and she'd kindy tell me that it was very good and almost like the real "row, row, row your boat" and I'd feel all happy and proud and put the kettle on again. We'd be friends but she'd have to go outside to smoke as she knows I don't like smoking in the house what with Jack and Lucas and everything. She'd tell me about her jilted loves and I'd shake my head disapprovingly while saying things like "he sounds like a right shit"...I'd hold her hand if she got really upset. Oh, and one time, she'd get wrecked on red wine and I'd say "I dont think you should be driving home Beth" and she'd ask me to call a cab but she'd fall asleep on my couch before I could, so I'd get a blanket and drape it over her and make her strong coffee in the morning before I went to work.....good GOD I need to go to sleep.

[ mood | curious ]

Alright, according to LastFm, there is a live version of Wandering Star floating around somewhere (with 23 thousand listeners!)
Does anyone know where to find it? Does anyone HAVE it and would like to share?
Please or Thank You, not sure which.

If you don't already own this album, you should really pick it up. It is some awesome downtempo music.

Hello, [22 Dec 2007|11:12am]
[ mood | amused ]

I'm new here and very excited about the new album. Below is a link to mp3's from ATP that someone shared on LastFM. It has 5 new songs included with pretty decent sound quality for live recordings.


(Ex-claimer: someone informed me that there were potential adware or spyware attached to this. I didn't have that happen when i downloaded it but someone may have better detecting software than I do. Download at own risk.)

Hi, I hope this is allowed.

Just wanted to let any music lovers from the Northwest of the UK, from Blackpool to Betws-y-coed, know that there is a new community for you.

It's called uk_nw_music.

It is open for all kinds of musical discussion, from finding bandmates to talking about new albums to finding your local youth orchestra. So basically anything music-related, whatever the angle.

x-posted lots.

Can anyone help with the first question I made on this community? I've tried looking everywhere else, so I'm hoping a Portishead fan knows. Thanks!
