1. VIDEO: Geoff Barrow of Portishead Interviewed at Radio France's Endless Record Warehouse.


    Recently, Geoff Barrow - of Portishead, Beak and Quakers fame - appeared on "Vinyl Radio" - a pretty cool series on French National public radio's Radio France produced in conjunction with Blogotheque . The show's premise: a featured artist or producer rolls through RF's warehouse of nearly half a million records, and pulls, plays and discusses whatever vinyl pieces pique his or her interest. After Barrow goes diggin' through the stacks of wax (commenting on Zappa's 200 Motels soundtrack, "Ever seen that film? Man, it's just the hardest thing to watch..."), he emerges to chop it up about a few of his favorites, including classics from P.E., Can, Herbie Hancock, Madvillain, Suicide, and more...
