ROSE MCDOWALL began her career in her hometown of Glasgow, operating within the nascent punk scene with her first group The Poems. After a meteoric rise to pop stardom with Strawberry Switchblade (along with friend Jill Bryson), McDowall submerged herself in the post-industrial landscape, recording with the likes of Coil, Boyd Rice and Current 93. Shortly after, she began recording with her own group Sorrow, before disappearing into the underground, re-surfacing for occasional performances only. Recently Rose has teamed up with our friends Night School Records and are proud to announce an extensive archive project commencing in 2015. Spanning Rose’s 34 year career, the project will include reissues and unreleased recordings alongside unseen photographs and new sleeve notes. 2015 sees McDowall re-evaluate her career, recontextualising material from her back catalogue into new forms. Drawing on her roots in early 80s guitar melancholia but celebrating the future, McDowall is now at the height of her melodic powers.
