POLLY HARVEY plays a bunnygirl and covers a song by The Three Degrees in two short films by director Sarah Miles to be shown at London Pimlico Tate Gallery on March 14.
A Bunnygirl’s Tale is a short documentary on the rise and fall of Hugh Hefner‘s Playboy Club and features Harvey in full Bunnygirl garb and includes the song ‘Nina In Ecstasy’, a B-side to February’s ‘The Wind’ single (on Island).
Harvey then teams up with guitarist John Parish to cover The Three Degrees‘ ‘When Will I See You Again’ in the second film, Amaeru Fallout 1972, which is based on the childhood experiences of Dorset-born art-house director Sarah Miles.
Miles told NME: “I sent Polly a script because I’ve always loved her music, I had a real empathy with it, with us both being from Dorset. I can only say good things about Polly and what she’s brought to my films.”
The films are being shown free along with other work by Sarah Miles, but places are extremely limited. Entry is free, but on a first come, first served basis.
Meanwhile, as previously reported, Harvey and John Parish will share the stage at London W1 Improv Theatre on April 1 with Echo & The Bunnymen at a special show to celebrate John Peel‘s 60th birthday on August 30. The gig will be broadcast live on Peel‘s BBC Radio 1 show.
Tickets for the show are available from NME‘s 24-hour ticketline on 0870 121 0125 or click here to go to our online gig guide and ticket service.
