The Hallelujah Picassos were formed in June, 1987, and were originally known as The Rattlesnakes.
In May 1992 the Hallelujah Picassos released their "brilliant" debut album 'Hateman In Love', the culmination of 4 years playing around Auckland. They toured the nation playing to great audiences, converting one and all to Picasso Core.
They then released the single 'Lovers Plus' with 3 new B-side recordings. 'Lovers Plus' is a lilting reggae/ska ditty features Alice Latham of the Arch Hill Tune Rustlers on saxophone and Greg Johnson on trumpet, and a mighty fine piece of trumpet it is too!
'Hateman' was recorded at Airforce Studios with Rex Visible at the wheel. Both 'Who Do You Love?' and 'It's A Man's World' have been popular live faves with the HP's for a wee while, so they decided to commit them to tape. These two tracks were recorded pretty much live at Frisbee Studios, and they are rippingly good. Picassos tear Bo Diddley's 'Who Do You Love' into a ragged trashing heap, and bend James Brown's classic 'It's A Man's World' into a beast of a thing, all wild dynamics and enchanting piano.
Their single 'Lovers Plus' entered the NZ Top 50 Singles Sales Chart at No.47 early December.
