Engineered by Peter Williams
Personnel: Rowland S.Howard, Mick Harvey, Lydia Lunch, Barry Adamson and Genevieve McGuckin.
“I was very drawn to Rowland; he was the sound of a ghost. The first song we wrote was called I Fell in Love With a Ghost. I felt he wasn’t long for the world even when I first met him. We’re all born dying but in his case there was something so fragile about him. But there was something so magical too, and being quite witchy myself it made a good fit.”
