Who is great? PJ Harvey is. See:
That’s her heading up the reviews section of The Fly this month. I don’t know if the album’s actually any good because I’m not going to listen to it until I buy it, and I’m skint now. But (for once) The Fly’ve put a good artist on the front. Normally you have to buy your way into that rag (e.g. same issue – The Joy Formidable cover and, surprise, surprise, full page ad just inside…) but PJH just storms in there by the force of her back cat’s unimpeachable, eclectic brilliance.
