It seems to me there's a bit of Morphine also. I believe she expressed a liking for Sandman et al.

I believe her sax player simultaneously played a bari as well as a tenor the other day. see 14:40 above Morphine's player doing the same.

LOL, taxi dispatcher mic, slide bass with only 2 strings...but it all worked!

So she did - British singer PJ Harvey once described them as "one of the most sexy bands because it's just slide bass guitar, low baritone saxophone and drums."
Really enjoyed the moody atmospherics of that band. Had a distinctive sound.

Anacostia in the news:
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2016/06/07/ryan-to-unveil-poverty-agenda/

This is laughable since Ryan recently declared his support for Trump, an unstable maniacal billionaire and the closest thing to a fascist dictator ever seen in a US presidential election.

The songs from Hope Six resonate more from the live performances for me than on the album. Due to the interpretation from a large band together and the powerhouse display from Polly. Unlike LES where the songs remained the same from recorded album to live performance from my perspective. It's great to see and listen live though.

Long interview with Seamus Murphy

They start to talk about his work with PJ on 58:48 mark.

He said there might be one more film for "Hope Six" ("that's being discussed"), and regarding the documentary - "we're waiting for some funding to come in, and once it comes in, it's gonna be months of editing". He also wants to travel some more (for the film), and maybe he will film "a couple of events with Polly and a band". He also planning to use her notebooks in the film, and described it in general as a "mixture of their travels, his own travels, and recording sessions in Somerset House".

No, I think more of an Ancient Greek Satyr type of thing. Plus, this big white piece of stage (which is a part of a tour, I believe) IMO has some ancient-architecture vibes. It also may have something to do with the goat from the album cover (it was suggested by head's_bullet in here after the Andrew Marr show appearance).

So, she's once again "a creature from another world" (like in the "LES" tour), describing the "carnage" she has seen in our world, but this time in a bit more amusing / entertaining / provocative way (all of her dancing and stuff).


Odd you should raise the Classical allusion: I tried for ages to work out what the whole ensemble was reminding me of and eventually found myself thinking of the Sibyl (although Sibyls characteristically wear a turban or a wreath rather than feathers, but the silhouette is the same!) - who ecstatically utters prophetic words that come from beyond her. Seems terribly appropriate.

Europe – Following the release of her UK number one album, The Hope Six Demolition Project, English singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist PJ Harvey has been out on the road, headlining some of the UK and Europe’s most prestigious music festivals to much critical acclaim. Her summer touring schedule, along with her nine-strong band of world-class musicians, has included appearances at the likes of Glastonbury, London’s Field Day, Primavera Sound, and Rock Werchter to name but a few. PJ Harvey’s vocal microphone of choice on these shows is a Sennheiser super-cardioid MD 431.
Harvey’s front of house engineer is Howard ‘Head’ Bullivant, who has been working with her since 1990 when he recorded her first demos and co-produced her debut album Dry. Since then, he has worked as producer, engineer or mix engineer on five PJ Harvey albums, plus a number of other live and collaborative albums. He toured as mix engineer on her first tour in 1992 and has been involved in almost all of her live shows since 2003. He has been specifying Sennheiser microphones even longer.
“I originally chose the Sennheiser MD 441 for her vocal simply because it’s a fantastically versatile microphone, great for vocals and just about everything you choose to point it at,” he says. “Polly [PJ Harvey] used it on some of the vocal recording on her latest Hope Six Demolition Project album and in rehearsal, so it was always an option for the live shows, but in the end, when the whole PJ Harvey production was set-up with nine musicians on stage and 23 monitors, we thought that the MD 431 had slightly better rejection, and Polly choose it above the MD 441 to use for the festival shows. This is a show where the audibility of the vocal is crucial. I constantly recommend the MD 431 to other engineers. That's the best I can say…”
Monitor Engineer Magali Couturier, who is new to the PJ Harvey team, but has been using Sennheiser microphones since she started working as an engineer in 1994, comments: “We use the MD 441 as vocal mic because of the sound and the look of the mic. The filter and boost have very nice attributes. We also use the MD 431 because, as Head says, the super-cardioid pattern makes it easier to use in loud environments and with her band. And I’m using Sennheiser’s 2000 IEM system because they are the best, with precise sound reproduction and no drop outs.
“We have had a lot of help getting the right mics for our instruments, radio equipment, and IEM equipment. I can’t speak highly enough of the Sennheiser team, they have been extremely helpful and supportive. Our production is not a usual show.” Directed by renowned British theatre director Ian Rickson, dressed by Ann Demeulemeester, with lighting by Adam Silverman and set design by multi-media artist Jeremy Herbert, the PJ Harvey live show is receiving rave reviews around the world. “We are pushing the limits of what is possible on stage and have been very happy with the support we have had.”
