Rowland S. Howard "Pop Crimes" Reissue

2014-07-07

 
Rowland S. Howard's "Pop Crimes" will be reissued and made available in both CD and Vinyl formats on August 5th.

Always respected by his peers, a scan through the catalogue of Rowland S. Howard sees him allied with the likes of Lydia Lunch, Thurston Moore, Wim Wenders, Barry Adamson, The Gun Club, Nikki Sudden, the Beasts Of Bourbon, the Hungry Ghosts and HTRK. Rowland’s own ensemble, These Immortal Souls, gun their engines in the ill-lit background and the legacy of his work with The Birthday Party scores the skin of successive generations of musicians and fans.

But it’s a history Rowland would gleefully put a match to. With or without it, Rowland S. Howard would make tense, beautiful music, would deliver us his personal vision of the world, would create Pop Crimes.

"Pop Crimes" will be in stores on August 5th. Listen to the title track and check out the rest of tracklist below.

Tracklist:
1. (I Know) A Girl Called Jonny
2. Shut Me Down
3. Life's What You Make It
4. Pop Crimes
5. Nothin'
6. Wayward Man
7. Avé Maria
8. The Golden Age Of Bloodshed
