G.B.H. is a 1991 soundtrack album by Elvis Costello and Richard Harvey, the first of two collaborations Costello would do with Harvey. G.B.H was a seven-part Channel 4 series first aired in the U.K. in 1991. Despite the participation of Elvis Costello, the music is not rock, which was a surprise to critics at the time it was first released.
