‘Ave Maria’ at the Rowland S. Howard Tribute at MEMO St Kilda, 1 Mar 2013. Performed by JP Shilo, Harry Howard, Mick Harvey & TJ Howden. Video by Mick Bell.
JP Shilo [is] the star of the show. Rowland was a musician who thought the beauty of electric guitars was that you could defeat their purpose. It’s probably a bit coarse to describe Shilo as Rowland’s protégé since he’s an in-demand guitarist and violinist in his own right, but he’s perfectly captured that mercurial method of playing. He sings as sinisterly as a man pasting up newspaper clippings on his bedroom wall, but he can make a guitar cry, stagger and die with much less effort.
