Where do you start with a musician who boasts a musical CV like Mick Harvey’s? Over the course of 40 years, he’s managed to blaze a fierce trail as one of music’s finest sidemen, being the most fundamentally crucial Bad Seed of them all, whilst also collaborating with PJ Harvey (no relation), being the only artist (so far) to net two Mercury Prizes, and also taking on a side-gig as the chief archivist and translator of the works of Serge Gainsbourg (in the form of a dazzling series of albums beginning with 1995’s Intoxicated Man).

As if he didn’t have enough to do, Harvey is heading out on tour, stopping in at The Cluny in Newcastle on Monday 4th November. Accompanied by long-term collaborator and The Triffids/Hungry Ghosts founder JP Shilo, Sonic Youth’s premier beat master Steve Shelley and Cambodian Space Project’s Glenn Lewis for a two-set spectacle, the musicians will celebrate the works of Gainsbourg alongside some choice cuts from Harvey’s solo albums. This will be an absolute treat and an unprecedented opportunity to witness a peerless group of musicians at work.
