Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Geoffrey Paul Barrow (born 9 December 1971, Walton in Gordano, Somerset, England) is the producer/instrumentalist for Portishead. Portishead-formed in 1991-was named after the small town near Bristol where Barrow grew up. On his intentions in forming Portishead, he has stated, "I just wanted to make interesting music, proper songs with a proper life span and a decent place in people's record collections." Geoff and his mother moved to the town Portishead when he was eleven after his parents divorced. After being involved in many local rock bands, playing drums and dj'ing in hiphop groups, Barrow got his first job at the Coach House Studios as a tape operator soon after the it opened in 1989. In 1991, while he was assisting on Massive Attack's breakthrough album Blue Lines, the band allowed him spare studio time to get his own ideas on tape. A few years later, when the Portishead project had been assembled, the group came back to record "Sour Times" in that same studio. At the dawn of the '90s, Barrow was making a name for himself as a remixer, working with such artists as Primal Scream, Paul Weller, Gabrielle and Depeche Mode.show more
