Нашел вконтакте ссылку на русский перевод книги Джэймса Р. Блэндфорта "Восхождение сирены" (James R. Blandford "Siren Rising") о Полли Джин Харвей (книга в pdf-формате скачивается в два клика с rapidshare). Огромное спасибо за перевод Dmirty Starkey. Я же, в свою очередь, отсканировал фотки из книги и бутлегографию (она вот здесь отдельным постом).

Nightingale lyrics [21 Sep 2011|05:05pm]

Does anyone know what the lyrics are at the end of the song, it sounds like she says heads on stakes or something like that. I've tried looking it up but those lyrics are always left out. Also anyone know why the lyrics she has listed on the new album are different than in the actual songs?

A couple interviews and... [16 Feb 2011|05:42pm]

PJ audio interview on NPR's "Fresh Air"


Text interview with the Onion AV Club

oh, and

PJ Harvey to be offered chance to become 'official war song correspondent'

"We are certainly interested in working with PJ Harvey," said Roger Tolson, the museum's head of collections. "It is something we can take forward as we have never commissioned anybody in that capacity. We have other kinds of works of art using sound, like the art of Susan Philipsz, who won the last Turner prize, but we have never sent a musician out to a conflict zone."

Tolson said the museum wanted "a different perspective". "We want to find fresh pairs of eyes, although in this case it would be a fresh voice," he said.

The initiative was prompted by an interview Harvey gave last week to Radio 4's Front Row. She told presenter John Wilson she would have gone out to write songs in the field of battle had she had been asked. "I would have relished that," she said. "I find myself more and more yearning to do work like that, even if there is no such official appointment, to just go out there anyway."

PJ Harvey to release new album in February [25 Nov 2010|12:21pm]

PJ Harvey has named her new album 'Let England Shake' and will release it on February 14.

The album, her first full solo release since 2007's 'White Chalk', has been recorded with John Parish, with whom she released last year's 'A Woman A Man Walked By' collaboration album.

Produced by Flood (Depeche Mode, The Jesus And Mary Chain, U2), the album also features production contributions from former Bad Seeds member Mick Harvey and musician Jean-Marc Butty.

"We played most of the music live," Harvey told NME of the album, part-recorded in a church in Dorset. "I didn’t set down any rules. For some reason, we were all in a very good place, with a lot of energy, intensity and vitality in us at that time. It was a really enjoyable experience, and I think the record’s ended up full of energy and quite an uplifting experience because of it."

For the full, exclusive interview with PJ Harvey get the new issue of NME magazine. It's on newsstands across the UK from tomorrow (November 24), or available digitally worldwide now.

Most noticeably at this moment is Kamikazi and Good Fortune, off of Stories. In case it isn't obvious, I haven't liked her newer albums as much.

PJ speaks about new album, performs a song [06 Jun 2010|10:42pm]

Hi all, apparently Polly did an interview and played a new song back in April on the BBC. The song she played was Let England Shake, which someone in this community posted about a little whiles back. Anyways, she spoke about the new album some in the interview (transcription taken from this site):

“I’ve written about half of my new record on one of these,” Harvey said, referring to a nearby autoharp to be used for the performance that followed. “I’ve got three autoharps and I’ve had them tuned in slightly different chords, uh, fixtures here, so that they’re slightly out of the normal line of what an autoharp would sound like. There’s a lot more minor keys, a lot of darker keys."

"The next body of work [‘Let England Shake’], it’s an example of the whole album, really, in that i was looking outwards a lot more. I think a lot of my work has often been about the interior, the emotional, what happens inside oneself. This time I’ve just been looking out, so it’s not only to do with taking a look at England, but taking a look at the world and what’s happening in the current day world affairs. But always trying to come from the human point of view because I don’t feel qualified to sing from a political standpoint."

Full interview and performance can be found on PJ Harvey's site, and this site has an mp3 of the performance.

Nick & PJ on stage again [14 Oct 2009|11:01am]

Nick Cave was joined onstage by PJ Harvey during an special, one-off concert in London on Sunday night.

The gig, which coincides with the publication of Cave's second novel, The Death Of Bunny Munro, took place at the Palace Theatre in London. Cave was taking questions from the floor, and at one point a girl asked whether he would ask Harvey to join him onstage if she were present in the theatre.

Harvey, seated in a box to the left of the stage, gave Cave a wave, and he said he'd love her to sing but only if she wanted to. "If it was the other way round, I'd be mortified," he said, and snapped back at one fan who requested that they "play 'Fleeting Love'" with a sharp "you're a funny cunt".

Harvey, wearing a shimmering black dress, appeared on the stage. Cave gestured to fellow Bad Seed Warren Ellis, sporting his customary prodigious beard, and introduced him to Harvey saying "there's Warren in there". Cave and Harvey went on to sing 'Henry Lee', accompanied by Ellis and Martin Casey on bass.

PJ Harvey-Apple Valley [14 Jun 2009|09:44pm]

[ mood | giddy ]

I went to the PJ Harvey gig at the Minnesota Zoo last night, and it was freaking fantastic! Such a small venue with a quiet pond and a stone bluff as a backdrop for the stage. I was only 4 rows up from the stage on the right.

Does anyone have any videos or music they can share? The song they did during the encore, "False Fire", was a great rock-ish song to finish the show. I'd love to hear it again.

June 13th - Minnesota Zoo Amphitheater - Apple Valley, MN [08 May 2009|12:20pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Doesn't everyone love ticketmaster? I'm going to have several tickets available (good seats!) to the Minneapolis/Apple Valley PJ Harvey & John Parish show! This show is at the zoo and is reserved seating. I got 3 tickets as soon as they went on sale and got 3 tickets Center Section 5th row! Then, for the hell of it, I went to see if it was possible to get anything better and ended up with 3 tickets Center Section 2nd row! THEN, I thought... I couldn't do anything possibly better and got 3 tickets for Center Section 1st row!! 

So, I now have 3 tickets together for the 5th row Center Section & 3 tickets together for the 2nd row Center Section that I won't be using. Anyone interested? With all the fees, etc... the total for 3 tickets together came to $131.35 ($43.78 each) and that's what I'm asking for. I don't care about making money off them, etc... I'd just like to see them go to another big fan. I'd first prefer to sell the 3 seats together before selling 2 of the 3 or a single ticket. I'd accept a PayPal payment and then send you the physical tickets in the mail (with a tracking number and signature/proof of delivery) as soon as I recieve them. Obviously, I just ordered these a few minutes ago so I probably won't have the tickets in my hand until next week sometime.

If you're interested send me an e-mail at romantique96@gmail.com   I'll hold the tickets for whoever e-mails saying they want them and can pay right away.

PJ at Queen's Hall, Edinburgh [01 May 2009|08:16pm]

I was lucky enough to meet Polly at her Edinburgh gig with John Parish. Suffice to say the gig was utterly amazing and she is the most lovely and intelligent woman! She was in heels and I was in flats (I'm in the blue), and she was still an absolutely miniature person. I felt like she was made of bone china, she is so delicate and beautiful!
