I really love Rob Ellis' drumming on PJ Harvey's earlier albums as well as stuff from "Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea" and "Uh Huh Her." His drumming complimented PJ's guitar playing and singing. What does anyone think?

Many thanks for that. Really interesting insight into someone who seems to have contradictory characteristics - very shy, diffident, rather nervous, yet selfish & impulsive at the same time. Got the feeling there was an awful lot he wasn't going to tell us about!

Yes, thank you indeed, I would never have looked for that. Rob Ellis has always struck me as a seriously good musician, rather more than Polly herself really: but I'm not musical at all so that's just a layperson's impression.

I follow Rob on Twitter, which is where I saw the link.

Hy!
I've always thought that without Rob Ellis' drumming,PJ' songs would have been a little bit banal.
He is so clear but never foregone,powerful and destabilizing at the right point (just think to Man-size,for example:masterpiece of uneven tempo).He knew how to underline PJ songwriting better than others.
I still miss him,never admitted the others . :snob:
