Biography

Los Angeles-based jangle pop outfit Pop Art formed in 1983, originally comprising singer David Steinhart, his brothers Steve and Rich on guitar, bassist Tony Ortega and drummer Steve LePatner. The Steinharts soon after formed their own label, Stonegarden, for the purposes of releasing the band’s debut single, “That’s Enough for Me”; a self-titled, six-song EP followed in 1984. Pop Art’s full-length debut A Perfect Mental Picture appeared a year later, earning the group a cult following among college radio listeners - LePatner left the lineup soon after its release, with drummer Steven Weisburd signing on for the follow-up, 1986’s Long Walk to Nowhere. Snap Crackle Pop Art, considered by diehards the band’s masterpiece, appeared in 1987, but despite critical acclaim Pop Art remained frustratingly little-known to the vast majority of listeners, and after one final LP, 1990s Later on in the Same Life, the group dissolved. In 2000 Stonegarden issued Really Blind Faith: A Retrospective 1984-1990, while in the interim David Steinhart issued a pair of solo efforts, 1992’s Everything She Says and the next year’s The Almighty Nest. In 1994, he formed Small Brown Handbag with bassist Cindy Albon and drummer John Glogovac.
