Mick Harvey to Play Great South Pacific Tuning Fork, Wednesday 20 May 2015

Mick Harvey 2015Vector Arena is proud to present Aussie veteran of brooding song, Mick Harvey live at The Great South Pacific Tuning Fork this Wednesday 20 May!

A founding member of blood-soaked punk act The Birthday Party, a Bad Seed alongside Nick Cave for decades, and a long-time wingman for British goth-ette PJ Harvey, Mick Harvey’s CV is one of the most enviable in the business. Harvey is equally known for his soundtrack work (Chopper, To Have And To Hold, Australian Rules) and his production work (Anita Lane, Rowland S Howard and most recently PJ Harvey’s Mercury Prize winning album, Let England Shake).

Now stalking stages as a frontman and songwriter in his own well-earned right, Harvey has a string of six solo studio albums to his name. His most recent of which, FOUR (Actos of Love), is a contemplation on romantic love – its loss, re-awakening, our struggles with it and its place in our universe. The album is a song cycle, divided into 3 Acts. It was recorded at Grace Lane, North Melbourne and Atlantis Sound, Melbourne and features regular collaborators Rosie Westbrook on double bass and JP Shilo on guitar and violin. “Four (Acts of Love) oozes curdled lust, broken obsession, and morbid romanticism.” – Pitchfork

Harvey brings to New Zealand his full band, The Intoxicated Men, for the first time.
