There’s been some controversy over a recent review of PJ Harvey’s show in Perth, published on 720 ABC Perth. Fans have lashed out calling the review “sexist” and “Utter crap. Embarassing.”.
It was comments in the article such as “like many of other males have been introduced to PJ Harvey by my partner.”, “We talk about her music, and how although we as men are not massive fans, we both have great respect for her and her song writing”, “After seeing PJ Harvey perform at festivals, I know this lass can hold her own with the boys” that have offended people, including triple j presenter Brendan Mclean, who as an ABC employee can’t believe the quality of the article.
@macleanbrendan: “Can you believe someone probably got to see PJ Harvey for free in return for writing that pile of bullshit.”
@macleanbrendan: “Furious. It’s rubbish. It’s not ABC quality and probably goes against some of the standards of writing.”
PJ Harvey is currently out here on her Let England Shake Tour and Sydney Festival appearances.
