In 1994 they made a short film titled ''To Kill a Dead Man'', which they wrote and acted in. They're also infamous for taking a long time to make albums, a trait shared by their fellow Bristolians Music/MassiveAttack - they were on a long hiatus between 1999-2005.

* MoodWhiplash - "Deep Waters" in the middle of ''Third'', which is a Hawaiian tune about a girl choosing to face her fears.
** "Glory Box" is either a woman asking her husband to be a bit more caring and loving, or a cheating woman tired of cheating man asking the same question. Either way, the lyrics - and music, somewhat - aren't as sad as the rest of the songs on the album.

* {{Theremin}}: Played by Utley on "Mysterons". "Humming" also has a Theremin-ish sound, but that's actually a Moog. Both get used if - and when - they do play live.

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly - They're classified as "trip-hop", but they're more if Music/NineInchNails was a jazz band instead and if TrentReznor was a middle-aged woman - there's not much rapping going on, compared to Music/MassiveAttack.

The other famous TripHop band from Bristol that helped [[TropeCodifier codify]] and popularize the genre alongside Music/MassiveAttack. Portishead have been rolling around the music scene since 1991.1991, and named themselves after a town eight miles west of Bristol. The band consists of the following members:



Portishead's famous SignatureStyle is a combination of hip hop-inspired breakbeats, dense productions, Utley's distorted guitars, influences from spy film soundtracks, samples, and Gibbons' haunting vocals. Their music is only enhanced by their FilmNoir-influenced aesthetics and {{Surreal Music Video}}s These elements brought them critical and commercial success right out the gate with their debut ''Music/{{Dummy}}'', but ever since they've pursued a harsher, more dissonant DarkerAndEdgier sound marked by claustrophobia, heavy distortion and industrial influences on ''Portishead'' and ''Third''.
