Five years on from his untimely death, Liberation Music are celebrating the life and times of legendary Australian songwriter and guitar hero Rowland S. Howard with the Six Strings That Drew Blood anthology. Thirty-two tracks long, Six Strings The Drew Blood was compiled in conjunction with and with the full support of Genevieve McGuckin, Harry Howard and Mick Harvey. Surveying Rowland's entire career, it progresses chronologically showcasing tracks by Rowland's bands The Boys Next Door, The Birthday Party, Crime and the City Solution, These Immortal Souls, as well as work from the solo albums Teenage Snuff Film and Pop Crimes. Accompanied by substantial liner notes, it's a fitting tribute to one of the most singular figures in post-modern rock. In celebration of its impending release, Martyn Pepperell got on the phone with Genevieve McGuckin, one of Rowland's closest friends, former partner, and a founding member of These Immortal Souls (pictured above)...
