release description

Supplying the heavy artillery, this limited promo 12-inch features ominous lead single "Machine Gun" from Portishead's aptly titled Third album. With a lo-fi, rapid-fire backbeat playing contrast to reverberating, angelic vocals, the minimal yet moving track is sure to catch on with Portishead devotees everywhere, while also striking at the heart of new recruits unfamiliar with the contagious, mystical appeal of their music.
