If you had 10 minutes to interview her, what would you ask?
The only important question - her work speaks for itself and is generally fab.
the name pj harvey?
polly jean harvey?
I would just pick her up and throw her at all the people on the social board yesterday (books by women thread) who seemed to be off the opinion that women could never be as genius / creative as men.
at least I *think* Raz is a man.
'Songs from the City' 'Dry' 'To bring you my love' etc etc are. And THEY were created by a woman.
i was trying to point out that peej has created works of genius and *something else about polly being the greatest EVAR*
is she touring?
by her manager? Can't imiagine Mr McGuiness gives her that much time when he's busy brokering ipod deals for U2.
poorly worded. apologies
I can't play guitar, but can she make my dream come true?

... idea for a show...
- start the recorder
- minute 1: you each do 6 shots of tequila
- minute 2: you each do 6 shots of sambucca
- minute 3: you explain that you've not got any questions but you thought you'd see what interested drunken conversations you could both have in the next 7 minutes
- minutes 4-10: the interview
- hungover the next day: write up interview as only you can.

what's her favourite brand of smoothie?
who was her favourite character in byer grove?
wouldnt like 'White Chalk'. its pyawaahh lush.
sounds so much like a mum album....
actually, you could ask her about her fear of moths...last two times i saw her she was being plagued by them. stopped playing her piano and had to wave her hand about to shoo it away....
doesn't seem to indicate a fear , does it?
getting up off your chair and walking about is a bit much actually- i think shes done it a few times...actually had to stop mid song to take defensive action.....i could be wrong...but its a good question.
seems to have a profound effect on the end result.
Ask her how much of an effect tranquil West Dorset had on the White Chalk writing/recording process as opposed to the very New York inspired 'Stories from the city, stories from the sea'.
