Description

Dummy is the 1994 debut album of the Bristol-based group Portishead. It reached #2 on the UK Album Chart and #79 on the Billboard 200 chart, going gold in 1997. Building on the promise of their earlier EP—"Numb"—it helped to cement the reputation of Bristol as the capital of Trip hop, a nascent genre which was then often referred to simply as "the Bristol sound". The cover is a still of Gibbons from the short film that the band created—To Kill a Dead Man—which originally got them signed due to their self composed soundtrack. In addition to the already released "Numb", the album spawned two further singles: the UK #13 hit (on re-release) "Glory Box" and "Sour Times", which reached the same position, also on re-release. On 3 December 2008, Universal Music Japan released Dummy and Portishead as limited SHM-CD versions.
