PJ mentioned in this review of Nick Cave's The Sick Bag Song, Nick will not be pleased by the comparison.

It all points up what a self-doubting and self-punishing artist Cave is. Ever since his glam-punk, Alex-Harvey-emulating days in Melbourne, he has fought to prove himself and defy his own self-destructiveness: it has been an almost Herculean contest. But where his former paramour PJ Harvey has, I think, gone on to make genuinely mature and coherent art, I’m not convinced that history will remember Cave as the real deal. Too many are merely in thrall to his morbid man-in-black wickedness, and that may be mostly what The Sick Bag Song is about.
