John Parish & Polly Jean Harvey - Dance Hall At Louse Point (180g Vinyl)

Produced by Parish and Harvey, and originally released in September 1996, Dance Hall At Louse Point features the single That Was My Veil. Reissue is faithful to the original recording with vinyl cutting by Jason Mitchell at Loud Mastering, overseen by John Parish.

Dance Hall at Louse Point is an excellent and often unfairly overlooked collaboration between the Dorset rock queen and her long-time collaborator John Parish. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but this is late-night mood music of the highest order. The lo-fi, stripped-down production and Parish's stark musical backing perfectly compliments some of Harvey's rawest vocals to date. Throughout the record she swings dramatically between different vocal registers, from angelic choirgirl falsetto to creepy whisper to shredded gut howls, as if she's role-playing different characters for each song. She sings every song on this album with a demonic, throat-clenching intensity that's almost frightening.

Classic JP/PJ & great customer service

Happy Valley have been really helpful and responsive. Fast and well packaged postage.
Will buy from them again. The re-issued album is of course amazing. Taut, City Of No Sun & Heela are standouts and old favourites. x
