Biography

Rudi Vranckx in catsuit? Since 'The Hope Six Demolition Project', PJ's latest album, we can't get the image out of our heads. On 'Let England Shake' (2011) she already zeroed in on the misery of war. Now she torments herself with Kosovo and Afghanistan. Her ammunition: a haunting, explosive blues sound and a note pad full of chilling observations. "I saw a displaced family eating a cold horse's hoof", she sings. No, it's not her happiest record, but it's spot on. Proof? A seventh Grammy nomination. And finally she was granted to take the trophy home. Our eternal guilty pleasure: Polly Jeans “pain is gain”.
