PJ Harvey - 1993

I heard 'Reeling' from 4-track Demos on the radio in 1993 and went to the recordshop to buy it. A week later I bought Rid Of Me. These two records really impressed me, the artwork is great and the songs are very intense, I never heard something like it before and since.
Steve Albini produced Rid Of Me and said that PJ only ate cooked potatoes. He was fascinated by her guitar playing and thought it was a shame she left this sound when she recorded To Bring You My Love without her band.
Below a live version of 'Rid Of Me' on an American TV show, 'My Naked Cousin' live in Chicago and then the documentary Reeling in ten parts.
