P. J. Harvey: Sex and Bile and Rock and Roll

Jim Arundel, Melody Maker, 8 February 1992

IT'S SUNDAY AFTERNOON, grey and bitter and it looks like rain. Your flatmate, Lisa, and her gangly boyfriend, Ben, are in her room. They're burning incense. Some of its sweet tang has travelled down the hall as far as your bed-sitting room.
