New Vinyl

Label: Fat Possum Records

Last solo release from the late, great, Australian native Rowland S. Howard. Rowland was a member of The Birthday Party with one Nick Cave before the band dissolved and they embarked on other projects. They were one of the more influential, dark, and challenging post-punk bands of the early 1980s. Here we have Rowland's Pop Crimes, released just a few months before he passed away of liver cancer at age 50 in 2009. This set, finally released in wider distribution via Fat Possum records includes Shut Me Down, Pop Crimes, Nothin', and the Golden Age of Bloodshed.
