Homecoming: Massive Attack & Portishead

L-R: Daddy G, Adrian Utley, Beth Gibbons, 3D, Geoff Barrow

I've deliberated on Massive Attack at length, but I will say that the sound here is a lot gentler than last night. The real highlight of this show is the presence of Portishead, their first in seven years. There are rumors of a third album in the works, which would be incredible. For now, here are four live tracks off the extraordinary Dummy.

The set was recorded on February 19th, 2005 at the bands' hometown of Bristol, as part of the effort to raise money in the wake of the tsunami in Asia. Simply another example of political activism that many bands would do well in emulating.
