Rowland S Howard 1959-2009

Fucking hell. Just learned about Rowland’s death from liver cancer on December 30th.

Here’s a couple of videos. “Shivers” was written when he was 16, and although Nick Cave hogs the limelight in this video, Rowland can be glimpsed two minutes in. A classic song.

“Shut Me Down” was recorded almost exactly a year ago at ATP, Australia.
