Portishead: Give Good 'Head

Everett True, Melody Maker, 21 January 1995

From a tiny town outside Bristol came last year's best album, the piercing, lovelorn and sexy-as-f*** Dummy by PORTISHEAD. EVERETT TRUE meets the band to discuss sex, dubs and rock'n'roll – and finds them pathologically unassuming, even on the cusp of stardom.
