in the shop / Rowland S. Howard + HOLMES

Posted on May 09, 2016 by Ray Holmes | 0 Comments

Okay---time is here. I'm happy to say that the Rowland S. Howard strap that's been plotted out and I've been dropping hints on for the better part of the past year is now available.

Huge thanks to Harry Howard, Angela Howard, and Genevieve McGuckin. Their participation meant everything and the project wouldn't have happened without it. 

The strap is up in the store section of the site (here). 12 are being released from me this go-around, with the same amount being directly distributed in Australia. If the strap sells out before anyone gets the chance to pick it up, just hang for a bit and watch this site and my instagram acccount, etc. Another batch will be available in a couple of months.   

Meantime, because moving pictures are magic, here's a bit of Rowland to watch...

Trailer for Autoluminescent, 2011:

Marry Me (Lie! Lie!)...wait for the lyric used on the shoulder of the strap:

Demonstrating early transformative influence...and possibly my favorite track Rowland had anything to do with:

The Birthday Party via German television:

Another Rowland favorite, 2008:

From Rowland's last year:

Crime & the City Solution from Wim Wenders' 1987 film Wings of Desire, with Rowland delivering a masterclass in swagger. Harry Howard on bass:

And finally-

Thanks, Rowland. See you in space...
