Geoff Barrow reveals new Portishead album details, crushes hopes of Portishead fashion line

In a cue taken straight from the D.A.R.E. playbook, Geoff Barrow of Portishead is just saying no. In a flurry of Twitter posts, Mr. Barrow laid down the law concerning the new (!!!!) Portishead album set to be released sometime 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.

Amen! Preach it, Brother Barrow. Unfortunately, he doesn’t say anything about promotional tie-in tote bags. Will there be tote bags? The American people want to know. We need our promotional tote bags.
