Please note, this is a fan site for the Australian musician Rowland S. Howard. We are not officially affiliated with him or Beretta Minx's late, great Burning Heart web site, a good portion of which continues to exist in archived form. Much of its content has been salvaged and republished here in the hopes of once more making it easily accessible to all!

Information for the discography section was gathered from various sources, including but not limited to Collector's Hell, Discogs, From The Archives, Burning Heart, and any on-hand copies of each release.

Thanks to Joy, Michaela, Deb and several others for scans featured in the gallery. A large number of images were also collected from Burning Heart thanks to Edie, though some sources remain unknown, credit is given where possible. Most photos that were originally linked off-site have been moved on due to the number of broken links that have cropped up after only a year. Sources are still linked. If there is a problem, please contact us.

Some lyrics displayed in the discography section were transcribed by fans, or copied from album inserts. The rest were procured from out of the ether... A majority of articles were recovered from Burning Heart. Aaand the videos section remains a round-up of YouTube uploads, now embedded in a more browser-friendly way.

Huge thanks to Sam Difference, Joy, Prick Mayall and the members of Dimeadozen for the many glorious bootlegs in the downloads section. And again to Joy and also to Bethany for contributing to the tabs section. Thanks to Antonio and Andriy and anyone else who has emailed us with scans, links, news or even just to say hi.

And a special thanks to Bethany for design help and creating the header and background graphics. The header image is of Rowland somewhere in London, taken from the gallery of Genevieve McGuckin, who has given us permission to host some of her photos here.
