fellow aussie musician and beasts of bourbon/kim salmon and the surrealists' bass player, brian henry hooper (check out his solo albums as well - they are well worth the investment), has referred to rowland s. howard as the "laziest" musician in the business, obviously in regards to the 10-yr gap between howard's solo albums (on which hooper contibuted his bass playing to both), but considering the circumstances in which these albums were made (death of his mother, divorce, relapse into heroin addiction, getting hep-c and liver cancer, and facing death with superhuman grace when many others might well have taken the easy way out), one might conclude that hooper's criticism of a rock and roll legend of howard's stature was more out of encouragement, love, and admiration. that being said, the 10-yr gap was well worth the wait and quite an achievement when one considers the circumstances in which pop crimes was made.

after several well-documented and intense years backing nick cave in the seminal swamp/noise/blues/punk/rock legends, the birthday party (who have influenced everyone from pj harvey to the jesus lizard to the drones), and stints playing with crime and the city solution and lydia lunch in the '80s, howard made a name for himself as a virtuoso guitarist - the "crown prince of the crying jag.

Rowland Howard's work can't help being under the shadow of Nick Cave's own, which is unfortunate since it is of equally good caliber. It is a shame that his work is so sparse, but what little there is available is fantastic. Unlike Nick Cave's latest albums (to be fair, from "No more shall we part" to the present day. The "The Boatman's call" is wonderful as it is) Rowland Howard's music didn't lose any of the edge of younger days. There's "grown up" stuff here, but the good stuff hasn't been traded for sappy sentimentalism out of a Michael Bolton album.

Really recommended.

This is a review of the 'Pop Crimes' LP ~ if you are looking at this then you are likely a collector who already knows that the music is superb. This pressing sounds great, and the copy I received included a poster, lyrics and a cd copy of the album as well. I paid about $30 from an Amazon seller 'oddbanana', which seems reasonable since it is very hard-to-find as of this posting and seems to be priced at least $10 or higher from other sources. RIP Rowland, Thank you for one final great one.

If RSH had had his hand in 1000 different albums you would just have to have them all. Unfortunately the totality of his output is rather slim, thankfully not vanishingly slim. Anything Howard touched was imbued with black magic, regardless his co-conspirators. His mark is always undeniable and inimitable. That which he penned himself or appropriated to cover, as on this epitaph album, is exceptional. I could seriously do with a dozen RSH solo records, another dozen from These Immortal Souls and the same again from his other bands. Not the least of which would be in partnership with the also late and woefully under-appreciated Nikki Sudden. Check out Teenage Snuff Film which is equally terrific. If I had any inclination towards the melodramatic, which I do not, I would call Howard's work devastating. Apparently our man released into the world just so much wickedly beautiful stuff as was his destiny. A catalog of undiluted splendor. Thank you Rowland and a fond farewell...

This album is so so good. I love his Townes Van Zandt cover of "Nothin", "Pop Crimes" is such a great song as well, as well as "I Know a Girl Called Jonny", this whole album is good from start to finish. A very memorable album that you should want to keep in your collection indefinitely. Get it! It was Rowland's last, RIP.

I love Rowland S. Howards attitude, very original. His albums grow on you like a fungus. It took me many listens to get into both of his solo albums but once I got it, it was fantastic. The guitar work was amazing, lyrics were great, vocals also. It was kind of a shorter album, but well worth the money.
