Portishead Do Jimmy Fallon
Last night was a big one for ’90s beat-music types on late-night TV. First, there was the Black Star reunion on The Colbert Report. And a bit later in the night, Portishead, fresh off of a pair of brain-wrecking performances at ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror festival, showed up on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. On the show proper, they performed “Chase The Tear,” the 2009 single that also happens to be the last piece of music that they released. And as a web-only bonus, they also did “Mysterons,” the opening track from their classic debut album Dummy. Watch both videos below.
This should go without saying by now, but if you have half a chance to see Portishead on their current North American tour, jump on it. Their show is a thing to behold.
