REWIND: PJ Harvey - 'Good Fortune'

While I thought the much-praised 'Let England Shake' wasn't the 10 out of 10 album the music press made it out to be, I still recognise Polly Jean Harvey as one of the greatest and innovative female icons in music. Having recently released her 9th album 'The Hope Six Demolition Project' a few months ago in April, her set at Glastonbury on Sunday night was full of drama, performance and oddness. But it's still her late 90's/early 2000's output that I'm most fond of, and this tasty single from her fifth studio album 'Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea' was released in November 2000 on Island Records. It reached number 41 in the UK charts but clearly should have been a bigger hit.
