Rowland S. Howard – Pop Crimes
Rowland S. Howard was a pivotal figure on the Australian punk and post-punk music scene, helping to give birth to a fiery, original sound as a member of the Birthday Party, Crime and the City Solution, and These Immortal Souls along with a wide variety of collaborations and solo projects. Howard’s blunt, reverb-drenched guitar sound gave his music a dramatic impact that few could match on the instrument, and he was enjoying a resurgence of interest in his career when he died in late 2009 at the age of 50. Pop Crimes is his second solo album, released on 16 October 2009, ten years after his debut, and two-and-a-half months before his death. The album also features Mick Harvey on drums and organ.
