This Picture

When the British band This Picture debuted on U.S. modern rock stations in 1991 with "Naked Rain," request lines smoked with listeners asking for the latest song from U2. Like Tuesday Blue and Cactus World News, This Picture aimed for U2's epic sound. However, U2 released Achtung Baby just when "Naked Rain" was climbing the alternative charts, and it destroyed the need for clones of the Irish superstars. Nevertheless, the poetic lyrics and driving hooks of "Naked Rain" gave modern rock radio a final gust of '80s new wave-inspired guitar pop right before Nirvana and the Seattle brigade made everything loud and fuzzy. Featuring Symon Bye (vocals), Robert Forrester (guitar), Austen Rowley (bass), and Duncan Forrester (drums), This Picture formed in Bath, England. The group's first album, A Violent Impression, appeared in 1991. Although "Naked Rain" was a hit on alternative stations, it didn't dent the mainstream charts. By the time another track, the exhilarating "Breathe Deeply Now," was being promoted to modern rock radio, the format was too steeped in grunge to care. A Violent Impression ended up in the cutout bins and This Picture was dropped from play lists once programmers started targeting younger listeners in the early '90s. The band recorded another full-length, City of Sin, in 1994 and then vanished from the scene. ~ Michael Sutton, Rovi

Absolutely love This Picture!!! Symons voice and passion have haunted me for years, ever since I lucked upon their first disc, A Violent Impression, at Jupiter Records in Austin back in '98! Was moved then and am still moved today. Always wished more souls shared a love of and a tearful missing of such amazing music the likes of which has never been replicated since the muses gave us This Picture. Simply the best music ever.
Thank you Pandora
I got their first CD as a promo while working at a record store back in the day.... I liked it from the first listen. Too bad they didn't go further.

I adore the album City of Sin from This Picture and over the years thought that maybe it was just ahead of its time when it was released in 1994. I'm so glad to see that Pandora has it available and that maybe some people will find their way to it.
