Mick Harvey & J.P. Shilo with Steve Shelley & Glenn Lewis
Time Out says
Outsider musician line-ups do not get better than this
For anyone with an interest in outsider music or alternative rock, this concert is simply a must. Australian multi-instrumentalist Mick Harvey has been a vital contributor to alternative rock since the mid-'70s, when he was a founding member of legendary bad boys The Birthday Party, alongside Nick Cave. Harvey followed his friend into later band, The Bad Seeds and stayed for 22 years, departing in 2009 to end what had been a 36 year long collaboration. In later years, Mick Harvey's other great collaboration has been with English artist PJ Harvey (no relation). He appeared as a musician on her 'To Bring You My Love' (1995), 'Is This Desire?' (1998) and 'The Hope Six Demolition Project' (2015) albums and he played on and co-produced her 'Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea' (2000) and 'Let England Shake' (2011) albums. He has also toured extensively as a member of PJ Harvey's stunning live band. Having released several solo albums, including 'The Fall And Rise Of Edgar Bourchier And The Horrors Of War' (2018), this concert sees him present a double-header containing two seperate sections. One will see a performance by close collaborator J.P. Shilo (Hungry Ghosts / Rowland S. Howard / The Blackeyed Susans) while the other section of the show will see Harvey draw from his solo material. Joining the pair on stage will be Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley and Glenn Lewis (Cambodian Space Project) on bass.
