Rowland S. Howard

Rowland S. Howard – Remastered reissues of Teenage Snuff Film and Pop Crimes

“Rowland Howard’s guitar sound defined a generation. He was the best of us all. His influence continues to reverberate, down the years, to this day. Truly one of the greats.” – Nick Cave

The long awaited remastered reissues of Rowland S. Howard’s Teenage Snuff Film and Pop Crimes will be released on Mute on 27 March 2020 (Fat Possum for North and South America / Bloodlines for Australia). The reissues follow several Pop Crimes: The Songs of Rowland S. Howard dates in Europe, including Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall on 12 February, with Mick Harvey, Lydia Lunch, Bobby Gillespie, Jonnine Standish, Edwina Preston and JP Shilo honouring Howard’s legacy – full details below.

Pre-Order here: mute.ffm.to/RSH-PC

Listen to the official audio for Dead Radio, from Teenage Snuff Film, here:

A vital presence in the post-punk scene, Rowland S. Howard created his own emotionally intense sonic language, first with Young Charlatans, then alongside Nick Cave and Mick Harvey in The Boys Next Door and The Birthday Party, and, after they disbanded in 1983, with These Immortal Souls and Crime & the City Solution.

“When I first heard The Birthday Party, besides the great songs and singer, I was drawn to the sound of Rowland S. Howard. It seemed that everything he did was something I had never heard before. Not only was his sound unique but what he was playing was completely from somewhere else. And then there was his voice, this deep well of emotion you knew was real. An absolutely brilliant musician and songwriter with no bad records across all the different bands he was in. A friendly and funny guy as well. I’m so glad these records are back out again.” – Henry Rollins

Newly remastered by Lindsay Gravina, Rowland S. Howard’s debut 1999 album Teenage Snuff Film – highly sought after by collectors – will be released on double vinyl (with one side etched), CD and digital along with 2009’s Pop Crimes, Howard’s final album release, available on vinyl, CD and digitally.

Teenage Snuff Film, was recorded at the Birdland and Sing Sing recording studios in Melbourne with longtime colleague and collaborator Mick Harvey contributing drums, organ and guitar and Brian Hooper on bass. The album was produced by Lindsay Gravina and engineered by James Mason and Jade Martin, and released to acclaim. Rowland S. Howard passed away on December 30, 2009, from liver cancer, only a few months the release of Pop Crimes. The album, recorded with Mick Harvey and JP Shilo, also features Brian Hooper and on ‘(I Know) A Girl Called Jonny’, the collaboration with Jonnine Standish and Sean Stewart (HTRK).

“Majestic…magical…beautifully alien…every note that resonates from the soul of Rowland S. Howard” Lydia Lunch

“Rowland S. Howard conjured these dark musical worlds that weren’t always easy to live in, but every word and note of them rang true—and they always made you feel something. Teenage Snuff Film is full of tension and despair and strange, haunting guitar. It’s a classic, like nothing else.” Britt Daniel of Spoon

“Forget the Prince of Darkness, Rowland S. Howard is the true sultan of heartbreak, loss and regret.” Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!
