Rowland Stuart Howard is an Australian underground Rock musician. He was a member of The Boys Next Door, which later evolved into The Birthday Party, with band members Nick Cave, Mick Harvey, Tracey Pew, Phill Calvert, and contributions by Blixa Bargeld and Anita Lane. The band's songs were composed by Nick Cave, Mick Harvey and Rowland. He left the band because of creative divergences with Nick Cave. He then became a member of Crime and The City Solution, a band led by Simon Bonney, and later formed These Immortal Souls with Genevieve McGuckin, Harry Howard, and Epic Soundtracks. He thereafter worked with Lydia Lunch, Nikki Sudden, Kas Produkt, Barry Adamson, Einstrzende Neubauten, Jeffrey Lee Pierce, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Henry Rollins. He also released an excellent solo album called Teenage Snuff Film in 1999. In short, Rowland S. Howard is a stirring songwriter and a very influential guitarist, and Stagger Records wanted to pay tribute to his inimitable style. Features contributions from Mick Harvey, The Drones, Alice Texas, Bellmer Dolls, The Hate Inside and many others. Stagger. 2007.
