Kevin Rowland: Return of the Soul Rebel

Nick Hasted, Independent, The, 17 October 2003

He is dressed in a black pinstriped suit with billowing trousers, held up by pink braces, a marked transformation from his last, vilified stage appearance, in a dress at the Reading Festival in 1999. Now, with his thinning hair slicked back and sideburns sculpted, he looks 1940s hip - and nothing to do, as usual, with passing pop fashions.
