I was a nightmare ... but I'm not going to go there ... again ...
Rowland S Howard appeared on the Melbourne punk scene, a phantom from Kafkaesque Prague, an otherworldly aristocrat. The demonic fury of his guitar shot him directly into the imagination of a generation. Behind the enigmatic man was an artful persona, a sardonic wit and a gut-wrenching lyricist.
His signature sound catalysed The Boys Next Door into the epic The Birthday Party, the seminal band of the post-punk era. With These Immortal Souls and collaborations alongside Lydia Lunch and Nikki Sudden, and his striking solo work Teenage Snuff Film and Pop Crimes, he produced a number of qualified cult-classic songs.
Known and loved for the timeless raw truth, beauty and wit of his words and sound, in an age of makeovers, Rowland S Howard never 'sold out'.
Containing a selection of rare footage and moving interviews with Rowland S Howard, Nick Cave, Wim Wenders, Mick Harvey, Lydia Lunch, Henry Rollins, Thurston Moore, Bobby Gillespie and Adalita, Autoluminescent traces the life of Rowland S Howard, as words and images etch light into what has always been 'the mysterious dark'.
Special features include music videos, personal anecdotes, disclosures, dedications and rare live performances.
ATOM has also produced a study guide for Autoluminescent. This study guide is available to download here.
