I just started listening to Portishead, and I am really liking what I hear! Are there any other groups out there like this? I already listen to Massive Attack, which I would consider similar.

AHHH, Portishead is so great! Cool to hear from another fan. Some other similar groups include Tricky and Kruder & Dorfmeister. Check 'em out! :)

I don't listen to them, but I've heard of them. I don't get a lot of time to listen to the radio anymore.

!

:(

But that may be changing soon. Will be looking for them. :)

Portishead is an excellent live show. I got to see them at a relatively small club a few year back and was amazed at how well they reproduce the songs. I figured they'd have to pare down all the effects and such as the album versions just sound very "produced", but damn if they didn't hit every song on the head...right down to all the weird little noises.

Other stuff you might like:

DJ Krush - (Ki-Oku in particular is an amazing album)
Morecheeba
Cardigans - Gran Turismo
Tricky

I have it on VCD.:)

There is supposed to be a new release in April as well. I would recommend Babyfox to listen to as well.
