Portishead with Sour Times. From their debut album Dummy (1994).

Last year during our Easter Holiday we stayed in Hutton, a little village close to Weston-Super-Mare, UK. On taking the M5 towards Bristol where we intended to visit the SS Great Britain (a.o.), I noticed the roadsigns towards Portishead and briefly wondered whether there was a connection with the band. Only now did I find out, yup, there is. The band, trip hop pioneers, is from Bristol and for some reason they called themselves after the town of the same name, eight miles west of Bristol near the sea.

The Charlatans with Tremelo Song. Album Between 10th and 11th (1992).

English rock band from the West Midlands, formed in 1988. Current line-up comprises lead vocalist Tim Burgess, guitarist Mark Collins, bassist Martin Blunt and keyboardist Tony Rogers, all of whom are vets, although only Blunt has been there from the very beginning.

Slaap wel.
