Since Steve Albini gave Rid of Me such an uncompromisingly noisy finish, it may have made sense for Polly Harvey to release her original demos, augmented by several unreleased songs, six months later as an album. After all, the initial British pressings of Dry came with a bonus disc of her demos. Still, the official, independent release of 4-Track Demos suggests that Harvey wanted to give these songs another chance for listeners who found Rid of Me too abrasive…

Pacific Gas & Electric was an American blues rock band in the late 1960s and early 1970s, led by singer Charlie Allen.
An excellent collection of music by this awesome hard rockin' band from Greece that features 20 tracks (75 mins) of outstanding, world-class, blues-based, retro, guitar-fueled Classic Rock mojo that stands tall and defines hard rock excellence. Strong memorable songs complete with bad-ass riffage, way-kool dual lead guitars, rock solid grooves all rule in the world of this first-rate band of kick-ass hard rockers. True to their band-name, Super Vintage (formely known as Hush N' Rush) are definitely on a mission to Keep the Rock alive with their superb brand of dynamic "Rock N' Roll For Your Soul". An essential plus highly recommended dose of killer hard rock mojo.
World Trade is a world class band in every sense, and their immense appeal expands beyond fans of Yes and other progressive rock bands to include devoted followers from all walks around the world.
US neo-progressive rock band World Trade finally followed-up their impressive 1989 self-titled debut in 1995 with Euphoria. At this point the band featured bassist/vocalist Billy Sherwood (who had briefly been a part of Yes) as well as guitarists Bruce Gowdy (ex-Unruly Child) and Jay Schellen (ex-Hurricane). World Trade's core sound remains unchanged from the debut. It's more or less a mellow progressive rock sound based on the later Yes style, with tranquil guitar melodies and Sherwood's high, Jon Anderson-style vocals.
Antony Hegarty has no apparent interest in being an ordinary pop star, and it stands to reason he wouldn't be interested in making an ordinary live album, either. In 2006, Hegarty collaborated with artist and filmmaker Charles Atlas on a performance piece called Turning, in which Atlas created carefully detourned video projections of a handful of women ("beauties," as they were identified by Hegarty and Atlas) whose difficult life experiences often belied their appearance, while Hegarty's band Antony and the Johnsons performed a set of their powerfully emotional and atmospheric songs. Atlas directed a documentary about the tour, also called Turning, while Antony and the Johnsons have released a soundtrack album that documents the London date on the tour.
