    Default It's Raining Post Punk Legends

    R.I.P. Birthday Party Guitarist Rowland S. Howard

    Rowland S. Howard, the Australian guitarist who played with Nick Cave in both the Boys Next Door and the influential post-punk outfit the Birthday Party, died from liver cancer this morning, December 30. He was 50. (Via Billboard.)

    Since breaking with the Birthday Party in 1983, Howard has collaborated with artists including Lydia Lunch, Nikki Sudden of Swell Maps, and Henry Rollins. His most recent solo album, Pop Crimes, was released in October. For more on Howard, read this in-depth obituary from Australia's The Age.

    I shall storm your house and destroy everything you love right in front of your eyes. That's the punishment for such heresy.
