Rose McDowall + S A L T

Following the break-up of her group Strawberry Switchblade at the end of the 80s, Rose McDowall embarked on a celebrated career in the post-industrial music scene. A member of Current 93 during their purple patch and a guest on records by artists as diverse as Psychic TV, Felt, Coil and Nurse With Wound, McDowall’s status as the unofficial Queen and muse of the underground is well deserved. Prior to the recording of several demos which resulted in her most recent, Cut With The Cake Knife, album (Night School / Sacred Bones, 2015), McDowall had originally formed Sorrow to further explore her interest in psychedelic, eldritch folk music. Considerably darker in tone than Strawberry Switchblade, but still resplendent in McDowall’s angelic, heartfelt vocal, the recently re-released Sorrow album,Under The Yew Possessed (Night School 2018), is a cult album that belies a classic pop songwriting sensibility. Here, for the first time, she will be performing some of these songs live.
