RIP Roland S. Howard

If you hadn't heard, but Birthday Party guitarist Roland S. Howard died on Dec. 30.

I was a Proto Goth in the 80s and I still love the shambolic dark music of bands like the Cramps, Birthday Party, Gun Club and X. So I've been searching the interwebs for some of my faves. Here's one I bet you haven't heard before: Kid Congo Powers La Historia de Un Amour.

Kid Congo played with both the Cramps and the Bad Seeds. Some other fun facts about this video and song:

La Historia de Un Amour was produced by Robin Guthrie from Cocteau Twins, shot at Wigstock by Liz Seidman, and edited by Douglas Hart whom was the bass player in Jesus and Mary Chain. Barry Adamson plays bass on this and and Steven Young from MAARS (Pump Up The Volume) programed the drums.
