Portishead Set To Reissue Dummy

Much like Slint’s Spiderland (which was reissued earlier in the year – our review) this is another album that can genuinely be referred to as iconic, game changing and genre-defining. Arguably the ultimate trip hop album, Dummy was the debut album of the Bristol-based band Portishead. It won them the 1995 Mercury Music Prize and is often cited as one of the most important albums of the decade it was released in. And this year marks its 20th anniversary.

The album is coming out on heavyweight vinyl (the first 1,000 copies will be on blue vinyl before it reverts back to black for the rest) and in a gatefold sleeve.

The Portishead website is here: portishead.co.uk and they’re on Facebook. Follow the band’s Geoff Barrow on Twitter: @jetfury.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
