Spot the difference – Nirvana and PJ Harvey

My wife pointed this one out, inadvertently.

The opening bars of ‘About A Girl’ sounded out.

From the bathroom, Charlotte called out, “Is this Polly Harvey? It’s the only song of hers I know.”

I started laughing.

“That’s great!” I remarked. “Very funny.”

She second-guessed.

“Is this Nirvana?”

She further explained, “When I used to go out dancing at indie discos, I got to recognise the opening bars of all the DJ’s songs.”

She’s quite correct. I’d forgotten. Remarkably similar guitar.


P.S. While we’re here.

Hole – ‘Teenage Whore’

The Fall – ‘God-Box’
