Third, the new album from Portishead has been out for a couple of months now, to much critical acclaim. It’s a darker and less commercial record than previous but still seems to have done well in many countries. Unusually the band played a bunch of shows before the album was released (due to a change in schedules). Good thing they did as the audience have been gagging for it. After all, it’s been getting on for 10 year since their last major release. So what’s been going on? I popped over to guitarist, synth-freak and co-producer Adrian Utley’s crib to have a chat about synthesizers, studio stuff and to take a look around. This is the first installment. Nick Batt
