One last fearless voice to round out this celebration of Island at 60, in the shape of Polly Jean Harvey. Her uncomprimising run at the label began in 1993, but this uncanny folk-skank comes from 2011's landmark Let England Shake. Look out for the invocations of Niney The Observer, lifted from his 1971 reggae classic, Blood and Fire.
