ED002 / Elizabeth McQueen

PJ Harvey - 'Dry', 1992. Broadcaster and musician Elizabeth McQueen takes time out to muse on PJ Harvey's first record 'Dry' and how its bold female voice arrived with a bang in her suburban teenhood in the early 90s. Elizabeth and Gordon use the record as a springboard to discuss the many sides of Polly Harvey; the power of her band at the time; how this and her next record 'Rid Of Me' came into being; Riot Grrrl; and much more besides.

Music played: PJ Harvey - 'Dress', 'Dry', 'Legs (Demo)'.
