From the ABC News team behind Lake Eyre and Return to Lake Eyre, After the Deluge is a documentary on the flash flooding that decimated the Lockyer Valley on 10th January 2011 and its aftermath. Detailing the constant rain over the preceding months, the film combines the personal stories of ABC journalist Paul Lockyer and the ABC News crew with the amazing tales of survival of the towns people. With previously unseen footage of water engulfing Grantham, this film is a compelling record of an event unparalleled in Australian history. The experience, even for seasoned journalists, was shocking and unforgettable.
Danish songwriters Jan Parber and Jes Kerstein teamed up with Morten Munch (former bassist of cult AOR heroes Skagarack) on the production duties, to release their one and only album "Stories From The Heart" in 1991. These songs recorded throughout 1990 are heavily inspired and influenced by TOTO with the classic '80s scandi sound in the mix, it could be described as a light version of SKAGARACK combined with TOTO's rhythm / westcoast touches and GLASS TIGER on the hi-tech moments.
During her career, Polly Jean Harvey has had as many incarnations as she has albums. She's gone from the Yeovil art student of her debut Dry, to Rid of Me's punk poetess to To Bring You My Love and Is This Desire?'s postmodern siren; on Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea – inspired by her stay in New York City and life in the English countryside – she's changed again. The album cover's stylish, subtly sexy image suggests what its songs confirm: PJ Harvey has grown up…
She may not break new ground with Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea, but Polly Jean Harvey proves one thing: she sure knows how to tend to her plot. Hard-rocking, guitar-driven numbers, mesmerizing vocal wordplay, and plenty of noisy atmospherics prove that Harvey is still the queen of rock-noir.
