Portishead VS. Black Sabbath.

January 31, 2015

Do you like female vocalists who cover Black Sabbath songs?  CUZ I DO!!!!  British doom outfit, GONGA, just released a video for their cover of Black Sabbath’s “Black Sabbath” set to creepy vintage horror film footage.  The twist is that they got Beth Gibbons of Portishead to do the vocals.  The track is cheekily titled “Black Sabbeth.”

Attention, if you’re the female lead vocalist for a doom band, I’d most likely propose.

Here’s my favorite Portishead song, “Roads.”  Yes, I know it’s not the 90’s anymore but I get a pass for not actually listening to Portishead in the 90’s because I was just a kid.


If you’re looking for something a little more current.  Here’s a link to a mixtape I downloaded in 2011 or so and come back to on long road trips (to Humboldt for instance).  It’s a mashup of James Blake and Drake (also cheekily) titled “James Drake.”

    Black Sabbath cover? Sounds interesting.

    Being a 90s kid, I think Beth Gibbons has one of the sexiest voices around besides maybe Mazy Starr’s Hope Sandoval. (swoon)
