Don Howland


Howland was a singer-guitarist within the Gibson Brothers as well as the Bassholes before the appearance of his initial solo record in 2002, The Property Beyond the Mountains. The record is really a tinnily blended, macabre mixture of psychobilly, swamp rock and roll, and Captain Beefheartian avant-garde weirdness, peopled with odd and disturbing pictures, relaying stressed encounters and tales using a streak of wild-eyed glee.
