‘Listening to this anthology is like a journey to the centre of the earth – by the end we feel we are near the core of a unique talent and an incomparable stylist.’– Mick Harvey
‘An incredible amount of effort and love has gone into the Six Strings anthology to span Rowland’s career and make it something that’s actually great – like Rowland himself was.’ – Harry Howard
Compiled in conjunction and with the full support of Genevieve McGuckin, Harry Howard and Mick Harvey among others, Six Strings That Drew Blood finally accords this remarkable individual the respect he deserves. The 32 tracks cover Rowland’s career: beginning with a blistering version of ‘Shivers’ from 1999, the anthology progresses chronologically, with tracks from The Boys Next Door, The Birthday Party, Crime and the City Solution, These Immortal Souls and a selection of tracks from both Teenage Snuff Film and Pop Crimes. There are also a number of collaborations, featuring Nikki Sudden, Lydia Lunch and Magic Dirt. Audio for the entire collection has been overseen by long-time producer Lindsay Gravina.
