Quotation of Beth Gibbons

Quotation of Beth Gibbons


I thought I had a clear picture of death, but now I know it's a mystery and it will always be a mystery, although it is something we all have in common: everybody knows that life ends with death.
Quotation of Beth Gibbons


I try to imagine how we would live if we didn't know we were going to die. Would we live our lives differently? Less careful, maybe? Less scared? These are beautiful things to think about and build a song around.
Quotation of Beth Gibbons


I wanted to do live things, needed an audience. Geoff was more of a studio-guy. A real programmer. So pretty soon it was: nice to meet you, bye.

Quotation of Beth Gibbons

Quotation of Beth Gibbons

Quotation of Beth Gibbons

Quotation of Beth Gibbons


Portishead-brain Geoff Barrow was the poor guy who made the tea and sandwiches and was allowed to press a few unimportant buttons in the studio while Massive Attack were making their debut Blue Lines in 1990.
Quotation of Beth Gibbons

Quotation of Beth Gibbons


There's not only emotion in the way you sing but also in what you sing. That way I can compensate it.
Quotation of Beth Gibbons


We're thinking about printing the lyrics with the next record so that people can find their own meaning in them. But then they would start having a life of their own, and I think the Portishead music should stay a whole in which the lyrics come second, actually.
Quotation of Beth Gibbons


You feel the music needs something but you don't know what. So you start searching, fitting, measuring, trying. Every time you try another angle. And sometimes that's frustrating, especially if you don't come up with something for three days.
