Yeah, same here, I was just making sure it wasn't a Silver Apples cover. And from below, NIN influence? Not at all, it's more likely that Portishead was influenced by similar artists, as the description notes, check out the song "Pox On You" by Silver Apples. Put some post-rock guitar over top of it, and you've got this. Still really cool tune.
remember when it hit me for the first time in the late night train on my headphones,when the lights were off and people around me were asleep. ok might sound trivial but it was some striking feeling. the piece alaways makes great impresion on me. so intense so harsh
