Geoff Barrow x Album Rules

In a twitter tirade, Portishead producer/instrumentalist Geoff Barrow set out some rules for the their new album, which is poised to be released later this year.

“There will be NO free downloads There will be NO bonus tracks There will be NO remixes There will be NO hidden footage. There will be NO additional content There will be NO corporate partners There will be NO fashion lines There will be NO tabloid pictures. There will be NO £25 unit cost There will be NO streetteam There will be NO myspace There will be NO celeb producer There will be NO twitter There will be NO press/blogger gig There will be NO acoustic session There will be NO meet and greet There will be NO edited version. There will be NO iTunes only There will be NO press launch There will be NO asian version There will be NO radio friendly.”

NME editor Conor McNicholas sees Barrow as a “wilfully difficult musician. He’s uncompromising and pure and we should feel privileged that he’s still playing the releasing game to some extent”. Doesnt seem like Barrow is much interested in marketing then, as he concludes, the process will be “Just Music and Us”.
