Mick Harvey: Alta Marea & Vaterland (Mute IONIC 6 CD)

Biba Kopf, The Wire, April 1993

A STRONG silent type, Mick Harvey is the unsung hero of The Birthday Party and Nick Cave's Bad Seeds. He also guided the neglected Crime & The City Solution, who could be as evocative of place and loss as The Band. Crime were Wim Wenders' favourite group and their 'The Adversary' was the one good thing about his Until The End Of The World.
