Stolen Picassos

This Perth band had just one release, a 4-track 12” on Easter Records, which was co-run by Kim Williams (whose own Summer Suns were on Easter – it’s about time someone released a compilation of Easter’s fine output…). Stolen Picassos sound, as many indiepop bands in 1987 did, like they probably revered Jim Beattie as their guitar hero.

All four tracks on the ep are brilliant. Here’s one, Little Words. Stolen Picassos made no more records, although they were scheduled to have a single out on Bus Stop in 1989. One of the SPs, Brad Bolton, turned up in short-lived but much-loved The Rainyard, though I don’t know what happened to the others. If anyone’s got any unreleased material, please share it.
