Via Twitter, of  course, the world got a mouth full when they saw Geoff Barrow’s recent tweet about their new album, which laid down the line in a straightforward list of rules, all of which contained the word ‘no.’  Check out the list after the jump.

Scheduled to drop sometime this year, here is the rather unfriendly lowdown on their upcoming album from Portishead themselves:

“There will be NO free downloads. There will be NO bonus tracks. There will be NO remixes. There will be NO hidden footage. There will be NO additional content. There will be NO corporate partners. There will be NO fashion lines. There will be NO tabloid pictures. There will be NO £25 unit cost. There will be NO streetteam. There will be NO myspace. There will be NO celeb producer. There will be NO twitter. There will be NO press/blogger gig. There will be NO acoustic session. There will be NO meet and greet. There will be NO edited version. There will be NO iTunes only. There will be NO press launch. There will be NO asian version. There will be NO radio friendly.”

Either Portishead is leaving is with little to look forward to, or they’re cooking up something unimaginable for our ears to indulge in.  Stay tuned, we know we will.
