(Photo by York Koepfer) These Immortal Souls were an Australian post-punk band formed in London in 1987 by Harry Howard on bass guitar, his older brother Rowland S. Howard on guitar and vocals, Epic Soundtracks (a.k.a. Kevin Godfrey) on drums (all three ex-Crime & the City Solution) and Genevieve McGuckin on keyboards (Rowland’s long time girlfriend).

Out 12 April 2024 on Mute are remastered reissues of These Immortal Souls’ two studio albums, “Get Lost (Don’t Lie!)” (1987) and “I’m Never Gonna Die Again” (1992). These two post-punk releases were remastered from the original tapes at Birdland Studio by Lindsay Gravina, with Harry Howard and Genevieve McGuckin.

‘Extra’ These Immortal Souls rarities collection as well

And that’s not all, these reissues will be released alongside a brand new 10-track collection of newly unearthed live recordings and rarities, “Extra”.

Harry Howard and Genevieve McGuckin comment this on the “Extra” album they assembled: “This took some detective work! We are excited not only for us but for Rowland S Howard and Epic Soundtracks. There are really nice new things here, different mixes and live recordings from L.A. and everything sounds stronger, lusher and more mysterious. We’re struck by what a strange band we were. There was no one like These Immortal Souls. Thank you Mute, for then and now (not forgetting the future).”

Listen to a previously unreleased cover of Alice Cooper’s “Luney Tune” right below. “Extra” furthermore features covers of The Stooges’ “Open Up and Bleed”, Nancy & Lee’s “Some Velvet Morning” and Alex Chilton’s “Hey! Little Child” next to personal and revealing sleeve notes by Harry Howard.

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
