Dirty Pillows Talk

Towards the end of PJ Harvey's initial incarnation, that as a hard rocker, and due to the time: Riot Grrrl (remember that weird sobriquet?); her trio performed at the 1992 Reading Rock Festival. But despite the popularity and excellence of their performances and recordings, Harvey soon disbanded the group and began her move towards vastly different musical territories.

I believe Harvey's music was never bettered than her first recordings (Dry, Rid of Me and her Peel Sessions), and this festival performance exemplifies that absolutely.
It also includes a superb performance of one of her greatest compositions: 'Sheela-Na-Gig'; targeting misogynists everywhere.
