So, the question is . . .

. . . do I know any keen PJ Harvey fans in or near Oxford?

Well, do I? Answers on a postcard, please.
Can't you read? You fell for his ploy. zotz very clearly stated that he requested answers on a postcard. Now, he's obviously feeling homesick for something or other and a nice cheery view of the Old University Town is just what is required to cheer him up.

Well, am I right?

PS Not near Oxford and not a PJ Harvey fan unless you count the Nick Cave related stuff.
Ah, but had he been paying attenion to said university town, he would have realised that in terms of efficacy, our postal service is just behind that of the soviet rail system.

And surely waiting 3 months for a postcard would have depressed him further?

Aha. I'm glad you've noticed, too. I was beginning to think that the postman had some kind of personal grudge against me.
