Harry Howard - Slight Pavilions LP

Shipping calculated at checkout.

New from Rowland Howard's Brother Harry, from Crime & The City Solution, These Immortal Souls and more! Great romantic Australian minimal rock!

Slight Pavilions references the 1980's including music I was involved in myself, music I was a fan of and music that passed me by at the time.

The LP focuses on dark subjects but I don't consider it negative.
I always try to represent the dark and light of things.

Pavilions (a word with grand 80's style) are seperate to the main structure. This relates to aspects of my songs and lifestyle.


The name Harry Howard might sound familiar to the melancholy-noisy connoisseurs of the past four decades. In the Howard family, the last-born, Harry, does way more than just curating the now-noise temple that are Pop Crimes' Nights dedicated to his late brother Rowland -- gathering people like Lydia Lunch, Bobby Gillespie, Mick Harvey, Jonnine and Conrad Standish, JP Shilo, or even Nick Cave himself. Alongside his experience alongside Crime and The City Solution or These Immortal Souls, the Australian summons the feverish melodies of The Gun Club, Nikki Sudden, or Gallon Drunk and then crushes them into a Suicide-like stern production where the drum machine is Queen. Slight Pavilions' nine tunes are battered by no-wave and post-punk's hammers just to be plunged into a cold southern-gothic romanticism that is the finest of Australia's productions. Far from being into the easy referencing, it is here a precious precipitate of the noisiest side of contemporary music that is offered to us. By the way, Harry's perpetrating the odious crime of being pop and danceable in spite of it all. The new record by Rowland S. Howard's brother. Nine tracks of no-wave, post-punk, and southern-gothic romantism.
