Biography

The Revolving Paint Dream were a London-based indie band that ingested a variety of influences with a wildly involuntary, style-annihilating internal grace. The band released two albums and two singles on Creation Records between 1984 and 1989. They were not only the most mysterious band on Creation Records’ original roster back in 1984, but also one of the most inventive. The band was formed in London in 1983 by Andrew Innes, who had previously played guitar for Alan McGee’s band The Laughing Apple. Later he contributed to McGee’s band Biff Bang Pow! and has played in Primal Scream since 1987. After a memorable psychedelia-tinged single, Flowers In The Sky/In The Afternoon, in February of ‘84, the band disappeared for three years before a strange collection of what seemed like out-takes, OFF TO HEAVEN, reached the shelves in June 1987. ’60s-influenced psych-pop sat alongside weird, distorted soundscapes to create an album that lacked any overall identity but was stacked full with ideas. It transpired that the band comprised Primal Scream’s second guitarist Andrew Innes, Nico-like vocalist Christine Wanless (both present on several Biff Bang Pow! recordings) and Luke Hayes, with some involvement from label organizers Alan McGee and Richard Green , among other members from Creation Records’ bands.
