Mick Harvey and the eternal path

"I'm one of those people who can leave the past behind and move on," says Mick Harvey, the impeccably dressed multi-instrumentalist and perpetual traveler. Most know him as a close friend of Nick Cave (with whom they have been traveling and playing for 36 years, mostly in Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds), but he has also worked with PJ Harvey and Crime & The City Solution, and with Alex Hake of Einstürzende Neubauten.


He didn't stay in one place for long as a teenager when he spent months and years between his native Australia, Berlin, London and Rio de Janeiro. Harvey recently turned 61, but he's not slowing down: after his World War One album Edgar Bourchier's The Fall And Rise Of The Horrors Of War, he joined the recordings of JP Shilo's Invisible You. And again went on tour, which is great news for us, because Harvey, Shilo and Steve Shelley (from Sonic Youth) will also be at Mixtape 5 on October 29th.
