We were unable to attend ourselves, but we hear the tribute to Rowland S. Howard at the Barbican last night was incredible. Not much of a surprise given the songs and people involved... Timely, then, that we should stumble across a copy of the RSH and Lydia Lunch collaboration from '91, a prime slice of teeth-clenched, star-crossed lovers rock, which like a lot of the RSH catalogue, is strangely underplayed. This arrived right in the middle of grunge and it's perplexing to think its face didn't fit. Perhaps it was a little too sophisticated, it's particular Bacchanalian road to hell blues too elegant and romantic for the Gen X nihilists? Well, time has been kinder to this than most... Should note this is missing the original outer sleeve (Our Price RIP), hence the low price for what's usually a price-y(ish) item. Record is in great nick, and that's what really matters. Can't think of many better Valentines presents tbqh.
