Re RSH: Delirium...

The death of Rowland Howard sent this house into a redoubt of melancholy. Can't lie.

The day began quietly enough, with enjoyable spins of the soon-to-be-issued Hell/Bryan Ferry collab EP "U Can Dance" (easily Herr Ferrari's best work in eons; more can be heard on Hell's new Teufelswerk disc), but as soon as the news broke, Howard's peerless Pop Crimes (and later, a Townes Van Zant soundboard boot from 1990) gave voice to our sadness.

It's fucking cornball, I suppose, but there are so few people who consistently get it right. RSH was one of them. Thus, the grey, muted mood.
