Hallelujah Picassos

Bio

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.

Band Members:
Roland Radicator (vocals, guitar)
Bobbylon (drums, vocals, percussion, guitar)
Pain (bass, vocals, keyboard/sampler, percussion, slide guitar)
Mister Peter Mclennan (acoustic and electric guitars, vocals)
