Listen to PJ Harvey’s ‘Rid of Me‘ from Halt and Catch Fire
English singer songwriter PJ Harvey’s ‘Rid of Me‘ was featured on Saturday night’s episode of Halt and Catch Fire — Season 4, Episode 5, “Nowhere Man”.
The song was played at the end of the episode as Gordon burns his notebooks and Donna plays Cameron’s game.
‘Rid of Me‘ is the title track from PJ Harvey’s second studio album which was released in 1993. An album that was much more raw than her debut, as well as critically acclaimed as one of the best albums of the year.
It was the second and last album Harvey created as a member of a trio — with Steve Vaughan on bass and Rob Ellis on drums. The two left soon after, and PJ Harvey went it alone as a solo singer.
Interestingly too, while PJ Harvey is often seen as a ‘feminist singer’, she does not classify herself that way at all. In fact, in several interviews she has said she does not write as a woman but as a human being, because she thinks the things others might find disgusting about the way people behave she finds fascinating.
