When PJ Harvey plays live her drummer of choice is the same man who played drums on Encore (Kenrick Rowe).
Are any Specials fans here also PJ Harvey fans?

I used to listen to her way back in the day when her first album was released. All those track like Dress and Sheela na Gig were great. I would still gave them odd spin. This is more than I can say for Encore.

There are a few links she has to The Specials.
Terry Edwards (from Higsons) has collaborated with her and been in Jerry's Spatial aka Orchestra.
She and Terry Hall both collaborated with Tricky.
And... Polly and The Specials were both championed by John Peel.

I remember really enjoying the acoustic versions she did of songs like Oh My Lover and Rid of Me. And I loved the spoken word cover of Is That All There Is?

Terry Hall loves The Pixies. I could imagine him liking P J Harvey
