What NOT to expect from Portishead’s next album

By ; January 5, 2011 at 6:39 PM 

Bands can be pretty secretive, the perfect example being Portisheasd. In this modern era of twitter it seems we always know what a musician is thinking, how they’re doing on their next album or what they’re having for dinner.

Geoff Barrow, one of the legs of the Portishead tripod, happens to have a twitter, and whilst he’s not giving away any clues about when it will be out or what it will sound like, you can strike all of these things off of the list:

There will be NO free downloads
There will be NO bonus tracks
There will be NO remixes
There will be NO hidden footage
There will be NO additional content
There will be NO corporate partners
There will be NO fashion lines
There will be NO tabloid pictures
There will be NO £25 unit cost
There will be NO streetteam
There will be NO myspace
There will be NO celeb producer
There will be NO twitter
There will be NO press/blogger gig
There will be NO acoustic session
There will be NO meet and greet
There will be NO edited version
There will be NO iTunes only
There will be NO press launch
There will be NO asian version
There will be NO radio friendly

Good to know that the band are keeping their chin up whilst recording. In fact, considering all he’s told us that there WON’T be, at least we can infer that there WILL be an album some time relatively soon.
