    More deferred gratification...
     
    More deferred gratification... after Patti, now Polly. News just out that PJ Harvey's new album 'Uh Huh Her' will be out on 31st May. The album will be preceded by single 'The Letter', out 17th May. She's one of my guitar heroes I've never yet managed to see live, a terrible gap in my life.

    In another life I'd be off to Glastonbury to see her mainstage this June. I'll have to make do instead with being in her part of the world the week 'Uh Huh Her' hits the cobbled streets. Which may add even more electricity to songs which, with titles like The Life and Death of Mr Badmouth, Shame, Who The Fuck? and The Desperate Kingdom of Love seem likely to carry her trademark intensity and energy anyway... How could something so powerful, dark, sensual, bold, and sheer rock-and-roll come out of sleepy Dorset? I hope to find out on me hols this year...
