  P.J. HARVEY BIOGRAPHY
The album, produced and performed by P J Harvey, Rob Ellis and Mick Harvey, was recorded by Head in Great Linford Manor in March/April 2000 and mixed by Victor Van Vugt at 'The Fallout Shelter' in May 2000.
Harvey then spent time working on a variety of collaborations, including 'Dance Hall At Louse Point' where her words accompanied the music of John Parish for both an album and live accompaniment to the Mark Bruce Dance Company production of the same name.
Recording her fifth album, 'Is This Desire?' in London and Dorset, Harvey again teamed up with Parish, Gore and Feldman, as well as Mick Harvey from the Bad Seeds and Rob Ellis from the original PJ Harvey line-up.

  P.J. Harvey, MP3 Music Download at eMusic
Harvey was raised on a sheep farm in Yeovil, England, where she was raised by her quarryman father and her mother, who was an artist.
Although Harvey was a reluctant interviewee, she cannily used the press to her advantage, whether it was through her candid interviews or startling, occasionally disturbingly sexy photo sessions, which subverted traditional concepts of female sexuality.
Harvey developed a richer, bluesier sound with the expanded band, and the resulting record, To Bring You My Love, was hailed as a masterpiece by many critics upon its February 1995 release.

 Bright Lights Film Journal | "Stop Your Fucking Screaming!"
A wary Harvey backs away from her stalker, who then indicates with a magnanimous sweep of her hand that she would like Harvey to go to the microphone and sing.
It's typical of the raw, honest, and sometimes self-deprecating Harvey that she includes this moment in her film, and equally typical of the film's presentational strategy that nothing much is made of it.
Also, Harvey shrugs off some of her best-known singles in a perfunctory manner; "Down By the Water," for example, is given more sluggish treatment than many of the lesser-known songs, and she even starts giggling uncontrollably during the song's most sinister verse, as if precisely to mock its popularity with the audience.

 P.J. Harvey: Biography : Rolling Stone
Led by the talented guitarist, songwriter, and singer Polly Jean Harvey, the postpunk power trio PJ Harvey came from small-town England in 1991 and took London by storm with its raw, dynamic rock and Harvey's evocative/provocative female-centric lyrics.
Harvey, who grew up on a sheep farm, quickly developed a reputation for being a publicity-shy recluse and reportedly had a near nervous breakdown in 1992, after playing the mammoth Reading Festival.
Harvey’s lyrics mocked efforts to control her sexuality and art, taunting lovers on “Rid of Me” and “Legs” and declaring her stature over cock-rockers on “50 Ft. Queenie.” Press-friendly now, Harvey disappointed many fans by denouncing feminism in interviews, although listeners found consolation in lyrics that seemed to contradict her stance.

 P J Harvey review: Hypnotic spell cast by a choir girl-cum-banshee - Telegraph
In the middle of an otherwise bare stage, P J Harvey had built herself a nest, using an upright piano, a couple of amplifiers, a keyboard and other bits and pieces.
Wearing a long, fl, Victorian-style gown, her hair in big, unruly curls, Harvey took up her position in the centre of all this, strapped on a Gibson Firebird guitar, pulled her sleeves up and began to strum.
But here, the idiosyncratic West Country singer and songwriter Polly Jean Harvey, playing the first of two such performances, was a commanding, compelling presence, casting a hypnotic spell over a hushed hall with her songs of fierce longing and heartbreak and torrid sex.

When P.J. Harvey is close to the bone, there are few who can compare for straight-to-the-gut-and-heart force.
In the P.J. Harvey catalogue there is a special place reserved for 4 Track Demos, the 1993 album that was, exactly as promised in the title, raw homemade recordings.

 Amazon.co.uk: Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea: Music: PJ Harvey
Grumpy doom-and-gloom miserabilists who favoured her darker early work seemed to cynically begrudge Harvey her new-found happiness on this record, and indie snobs felt put out that their “dirty little secret” was now being enjoyed by a wider audience.
PJ Harvey is a unique, genius-level talent and Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea shows her off at her peak: her voice is brilliantly expressive, her lyrics are unusually poetic, and her guitar playing has a ringing dynamic clarity.
However, given the choice of listening to 'not at her best' PJ Harvey or, to take a random example of the other CDs available, a Graham Nash live bootleg from 1993, well I've had PJH on the car CD player pretty much constantly for the past week or so.

 Adrian's Album Reviews : PJ Harvey
PJ Harvey as a three-piece band were also no more, the bass player wasn't retained, Mick Harvey of Nick Cave fame was hired, a Tom Waits guy was hired.
There is nothing simple about describing an utterly beautiful song that not only features Polly herself on the top of her game, but also features the vocals of a certain Thom Yorke of Radiohead fame, sounding as beautiful as he ever has on any Radiohead album, in case you're a fan of Radiohead.
You may be wondering if i'm a worthy judge of PJ Harvey albums, based on the fact I appear to be the only person in the known universe that really loved 'Uh Huh Her'.

 Amazon.ca: Rid Of Me: Music: P.J. Harvey   (Site not responding. Last check: )
PJ Harvey's second and most ferocious album finds her claiming images of sexuality, whether they're of a "hysterical" female (the obsessive title track and the indelible accusation "you leave me dry") or male "dominance" ("Man-Size", which also appears in an atonal arrangement with a string sextet, and the feral rockabilly size-brag of "50-Ft Queenie").
There were a handful of great female artists to come out at once in the 90's, but none of them did what PJ Harvey did, which is to brutalize herself into her music, to reclaim every inch of self-punishment and anger pop music had sanded over.
Rid of Me pushes that thesis to its breaking point, seeing Harvey step into the role of man and woman, of Eve shrieking in hysterics at the snake in the garden of Eden, of Jane of the Jungle on her period.

When Polly Jean Harvey burst on the scene, a tiny woman screaming tales of obsession and rage, she took a lot of people by surprise -- a foul-mouthed imp fronting an industrial band.
Well, the years may have matured her, and quieted the more extreme aspects of her presentation, but the special universe that Harvey has created over the years is still intact.
Disturbing and personal, this is a captivating record by a woman who has something to say, and does so in her own harrowing way.

 Sound and Vision Magazine - CD Review: P J Harvey
Many reviewers have been surprised that White Chalk is so quiet — which is sort of like being surprised that an Elvis Costello album has a sense of humor, or a Shakira album tends to make you tap your foot.
Thing is, P J Harvey's music is frequently "quiet" — even when it's loud and abrasive.
Sure, the chorus erupts into the scathing "Don't you wish you never, never met her," but it's just a momentary release; the rest of the song moves to a groove that, though tense, is hushed.

 PJ Harvey Dry CD
As the first installment to the world of Polly Jean Harvey, DRY is a cautionary dip of the toe to test the temperature.
DRY serves as an introduction to Harvey's fierce guitar--which at times recalls the front porches of the Delta--and highly visual lyrical angle that picks at the scabs of female iconography.
In "Sheela-Na-Gig" the narrator begs her lover for attention, but is answered with taunts of "you exhibitionist." According to Harvey, a Sheela-Na-Gig is a symbol of a woman ripping her reproductive organs out of her body...but laughing about it.
