Rowland S. Howard Vs. The Devastations
Autoluminescent

Roland S. Howard had a renegade talent that's clearly exhibited on 'Autoluminescent', a 7" made with his backing band The Devastations. The song is reminscent of the Jesus and Mary Chain's later work and has a gorgeously lethargic feel, underpinned all the while by Howard's gloriously gloomy vocals. Out on Easy Action.

Lydia Lunch / Rowland S. Howard
Shotgun Wedding

Christ  - imagine the meeting between these two. Can't imagine it would all be tea and scones. After several earlier collaborations, the duo embarked on this, their first full-length album - recorded in Memphis back in 1991 with producer J.G Thirlwell of Foetus. The result is a scrapbook of dark, tortured love songs and dramatic atmospheres. This reissue also contains their cover of Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra's classic 'Some Velvet Morning'.

Pop Crimes

'Pop Crimes' was Australian songwriter Rowland S. Howard's second and final album. Released two months before his untimely death in 2009, ‘Pop Crimes’ includes covers of Talk Talk and Townes Van Zandt numbers. Whilst retaining the noir-tinged, bluesy post-punk grit of the previous classic 'Teenage Snuff Film', this one is a much more introspective listen. Rowland left us with a haunting classic that's for sure.
