Geoff Barrow: The Gloves Are Off

Check out this no-nonsense interview with Portishead's Geoff Barrow from Remixmag. Here's a sample:

“[America's music] is shit, isn't it?” he continues. “The hip-hop artists are just rubbish. Jay-Z's records always sound good, but he got the sack from Universal. If you end up with a country Britney, it doesn't matter 'cause they're all twats anyway. Timbaland came to England trying to find a Coldplay to produce. Everyone told him to fuck off. He went to America and got his own band and they are gi-normous, the most revolting people you have ever seen in your life. They are called Timbaland. We all like it underground but no one is buying it. Even Moby is struggling.”

Damn. I'll be glad when my copy of Third finally gets delivered. Via GRANDGOOD. EDIT: Ney Soul Eu has links to Portishead LIVE at Coachella. Props to them
