ImageRowland S. Howard, guitarist for The Birthday Party and Boys Next Door, has lost his battle with cancer at the age of 50.

Only a few weeks ago on December 15, Howard cancelled his show at the Northcote Social Club in Melbourne due to his illness. He also cancelled his appearance at Sydney’s Homebake festival earlier in the month.

The guitarist announced he was suffering from liver cancer this year and was awaiting a liver transplant that did not get to him on time.

Howard rose to fame with Boys Next Door, the Aussie band he founded with Nick Cave in 1973.In 1980, Boys Next Door changed their name to the Birthday Party and became true Australian rock legends.

Howard also collaborated with Cave occasionally in the Bad Seeds. He also worked Henry Rollins. Lydia Lunch and Thurston Moore once did a cover of his song ‘Still Burnin”. He once played a cameo in the vampire flick ‘Queen of the Damned’ which was filmed in Melbourne.

This year in October, he released he second solo album ‘Pop Crimes’, almost 10 years after his solo debut.

Hillcoat and Cave Team Up Again
Written by Andrea   
Thursday, 05 November 2009

ImageEmpire Online reports that director John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition) is once again teaming up with Nick Cave.  This time, they will be collaborating on a film adaptation of Matt Bondurant's novel, The Wettest Country in the World.  Hillcoat stated that the script, penned by Cave, has already been written.

The adaptation, which Hillcoat describes as "Virginia, moonshine, backwoods...", seems as though it will fit right in with Cave's other literary endeavors, such as his novel, And the Ass Saw the Angel, and the screenplay for The Proposition.  At this point, a cast has not been determined, nor has a film studio picked up the project, but if all goes well with The Road, chances appear good that The Wettest Country in the World will soon enter the production process.

Hillcoat also spoke of possibly turning Cave's second novel, The Death of Bunny Munro, into a BBC or Channel 4 adaptation for television.  No word yet on if this will become a real possibility.

Cave and P.J. Harvey Reunite
Written by Andrea   
Tuesday, 13 October 2009

ImageOn Sunday, October 11, 2009, Nick Cave and P.J. Harvey were unexpectedly reunited for an impromptu duet. The performance was prompted by a question-and-answer segment of Cave's Bunny Munro reading at London's Palace Theatre. While taking questions, an audience member asked Cave if, were she to be in the venue, he would consider performing with Harvey again.

Cave, previously unaware of Harvey's presence in a box seat, upon noticing her, stated that he would if she was also willing. He also added, "If it was the other way round, I'd be mortified." Harvey agreed to the duet, and the pair joined up for a rendition of their song from Murder Ballads, "Henry Lee". An audience member had remarked that perhaps "Fleeting Love" would be a more fitting song, to which Cave replied, "you're a funny cunt."

 During the night, website The Quietus also reported that Cave explained what happened to his mustache. "My wife found my stash of rohypnol, drugged me, and shaved it off." (www.thefirstpost.co.uk)
