Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If you are a PJ fan then this must be seen as an essential purchase. Coverage of her most recent 'Uh Huh Her' Tour highlights why this lady is one of Britain's most talented women in music. Opening up with the sublime 'Meet Ze Monsta' how could you not continue to be hooked to this DVD? There is also an intimate half hour interview/ Voxpops with PJ where she highlights her artistic side and shows how she picked the images for the 'Uh Huh Her' sleeve notes. There is also some interesting back stage footage. Take note... live version of 'Uh Huh Her' (not on original recording) is on this DVD. Worth the purchase price itself!!

To some up, If you are a PJ-ite then buy, buy, buy and enjoy!!

I am a real fan of PJ Harvey.
I think she's absolutely wonderful.
But this DVD is cobblers - you can see the intention (producing something fresh, raw and vivid) but it's not realised. PJ harvey has vitality in spades, her songs are wonderful; she didn't need to inject extra edginess through constant cut-aways and camera swirls.
There's no getting away from the fact that people buy concert DVDs for the same reason they go to concerts; to see the songs being performed. Not, that is, to experience manic editing and clever-clever camera shots. The Nick Cave DVD - though she would find it galling to hear this - is a really good example of an ace concert film; measured, intimate and yet full of energy and immediacy.
However, by the far the most annoying thing about this DVD is that it, unfortunately, coincides with a time when she employed a complete knob as a guitarist. I can't be bothered to remind myself what his name is; I saw her live in Cambridge and he was a pillock then too. On the DVD he's constantly flitching about with his "axe" like a cross between River Dance and rickets and seems to be under the impression that the audience have come to see him. God knows what she was thinking, especially since she's a better guitarist than him anyway....
So, avoid this one and hope against hope that she'll some day come out with a much better realised, more intelligent alternative.

Format: DVD
Not for PJ Harvey a boring, slick, smooth concert film. During the backstage footage included between songs, Harvey herself says she "hates live albums and live [concert videos]" and one can infer that the reason is because they often fail to capture the real feeling of the touring life. Everything is smoothed-over, altered in post-production, everything is packaged nicely and make-up applied for the cameras.

Instead, Harvey and her long-time collaborator Maria Mochnacz piece together a real "patchwork quilt" of what life on the road is like, and 'Please Leave Quietly' is a fine document of the 2004 tour in support of Harvey's Uh Huh Her album. The footage of the songs is not edited in a slick, high-gloss production sort of way. The angles are a bit skewed, there are no flattering filters, sometimes we see the band, sometimes we see from an aerial perspective, sometimes we see the crowds, sometimes we get footage from separate performances of the same song (but with the same audio track.) The effect is entirely successful and makes for an engrossing film.

In between songs there are some interview snippets, footage of the band at soundcheck and rehearsals, and backstage; footage of the travelling and of the venues and of the weather... it all adds up to a fascinating portrait. Add to that the excellent half-hour interview included as a bonus element, where we see Harvey and Mochnacz working on the 'Uh Huh Her' artwork and trying to decide on titles, and it's as well-rounded a visual document of a concert tour you're likely to see.

Format: DVD
At last, a chance to see P J Harvey in all her wonderful glory on DVD. The footage is from her 2004 Uh Huh Her tour (October to December).

Directed by her friend Maria Mochnacz, responsible for much of her photography throughout her career and the 1994 VHS "Reeling," the DVD has 16 full length live tracks. These are brilliantly filmed, with footage from different shows cleverly spliced into each track, her onstage persona leaps off the screen. Between tracks, not only is there background footage, but numerous clips from other performances which enhances the finished disc.

There are some parallels with Reeling, specifially in terms of the format (a mixture of live performance and backstage footage), so this DVD makes an excellent companion to it. When comparing the two however, her growing maturity and confidence as a highly innovative and exciting artist shines through and she comes across as a really down to earth, cool, unpretentious supremely talented woman.

There are too many highlights to mention, although my particular favourite tracks were My Beautiful Leah, Who The F**k, Dress and Catherine. The interview is worth buying the DVD for alone as she gives an open account of her creative process, a rare insight into her lyric writing and much hilarity designing the Uh Huh Her album artwork. You even get to see Ms. Mochnacz!

An absolute Joy to behold and must be bought!
