Vapour Trail Lockdown Special -  Harry Howard

Vapour Trail Lockdown Special - Harry Howard

May 23, 2020

Welcome to the first in an occasional series of Vapour Trails Lockdown Specials.

In this episode we spoke with influential Australian musician, Harry Howard (Crime and the City Solution, These Immortal Souls, Pink Stainless Tail, Harry Howard and the NDE & ATOM) via a clunky old zoom link to Melbourne.

In a wide ranging conversation, we cover everything from the early days of the Birthday Party, Berlin in the mid 80's, the recent concerts celebrating the work of Harry's late brother, Rowland S. Howard, and his current project, ATOM, with a few tunes dotted along the way - and lots more besides.

Also, as a bonus, following on straight after the conversation, we've added an hour of back-to-back tunes, all related in some way to the bands/musicians Harry has worked with - full track listing below. So, if you like your emotions (and guitars) raw n close to the bone, keep on listening after the chat.....

Photo of Harry and design by Melbourne's very own Jane Durlacher
