More wonder and thunder from down under. Mick Harvey's extensive track record (Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey, Crime & The City Solution) more than qualifies him to score a coming-of-age issue movie set in "a small coastal town in Australia". Interestingly, the debuting director, Paul Goldman, shot the videos for Boys Next Door's "Shiver" and The Birthday Party's "Nick The Stripper", so he and Harvey have been communing aesthetically for a while. Harvey's been getting award nominations already for this, and it seems there's little he can't turn his hand to these days.

More wonder and thunder from down under. Mick Harvey’s extensive track record (Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey, Crime & The City Solution) more than qualifies him to score a coming-of-age issue movie set in “a small coastal town in Australia”. Interestingly, the debuting director, Paul Goldman, shot the videos for Boys Next Door’s “Shiver” and The Birthday Party’s “Nick The Stripper”, so he and Harvey have been communing aesthetically for a while. Harvey’s been getting award nominations already for this, and it seems there’s little he can’t turn his hand to these days. The sooner he dumps that one-trick Cave charlatan the better. This is a grower, a heat haze.
