From: TheRipper Date: October 6, 2002 at 22:52
These guys absolutely RIP!!! I can't speak highly enough about this release. And the fact that it was released in 1993 makes me feel right at home, as I was one who instantly turned my nose up at the grunge scene (or as I call 'em the Clinton years!). Lillian Axe is more than a fair comparison I think, and song 4 "Fortune of Love" on this CD reminds me (in a great original way) of the song "Ghost of Winter" off of the Love & War CD too. Great stuff. 10!!!

From: TIM Date: October 9, 2002 at 20:03
Has anyone heard their other albums: Bipolar and T'ain't? Just curious if they are worth getting. Thanks.

From: TheRipper Date: October 9, 2002 at 21:33
Who the heck is riggin the ratings? Get a life, for whoever is doing this, putting a bunch of ones in I bet!!! Right now the rating is at 3.83, I mean come on now!!! This release deserves at least an 8.5 or higher, at least by people who claim to enjoy the bands featured on this site!!!

From: TheRipper Date: October 9, 2002 at 21:35
Hey Tim! To answer your question about their "other" releases, as far as I know this (Id say Killer Hard Rock) group have no other releases. Believe it or not, I found a copy of "Bipolar Cowboy" and listened to it at a usedCD shop and found out its actually another Picasso Trigger group, an alternative type group with a female singer. And I have looked into it and I'm almost sure that "T'aint" is from this same band, not the one we all havegrown to love, to say the least I was VERY DISAPPOINTED!

From: TIM Date: October 9, 2002 at 22:01
Thanks for the tip. I bid the minimum on T'AIN'T but hopefully I'll be outbid- LOL. I like the samples from the 2 on here and I'll definately check those out. Thanks again.

From: TIM Date: October 9, 2002 at 22:07
I think Freddy is having fun again.

From: Stanley Ropper Date: November 15, 2002 at 13:23
This band was huge in Milwaukee for a number of years. I must admit that I used to follow them around the city. This cd shreds. The track "Power Trip" alone is worth the price of the cd. The Ripper - you are correct. This Picasso Trigger only had 2 releases. They were slated to relase a 3rd, but it got scrapped when the whole "grunge" movement started and fewer people were showing up for their shows. Steve, the singer, was one hell of a performer. RIP

From: TheRipper Date: November 15, 2002 at 21:41
Hey Stanley, what happened to Steve? Man, this guy was (still in my eyes) AMAZING, one of the best ever (and I don't care what league we're talking). Email me at if you have any more info about this group, I'd love to talk Picaso with anyone! A 20! Get it!!!

From: TheRipper Date: November 15, 2002 at 21:43
Picasso that it is, I swear I hit the 's' key twice. I wouldn't want to disrespect this band in any way...

Please call me stupid. I bid (and sadly won) what I believe to be ALL of the "alternative" Picasso Trigger CD's in one lot. T'aint, Bipolar Cowboy and Fire In The Hole. It's bad, very bad. Fortunately I paid very little for them, but here's another warning about it just in case, like me you didn't read far enough back on the comments here. Don't buy ANYTHING other than the two releases listed here.

From: TIM Date: November 21, 2002 at 14:03
Don't feel bad, I bid on the Bipolar and won. It's still sealed so I'll sell it. I trust your judgement.

It's almost as bad as when I bought "Remembering White Lion" not knowing it was Mike Tramp and a bunch of Scandinavian dudes mutilating some classic White Lion tunes. The Picasso Trigger couldn't even be called alternative really. It sounds like old punk, like Black Flag with a female vocalist.

From: TIM Date: November 21, 2002 at 15:02
Just the sound of that is sickening- LOL.

From: metalhead@centu Date: August 4, 2004 at 6:19
hello this is bob i worked with these guys i video taped around 60 of there shows i believe they even took my footage and made the video for power trip i used to work at a club called the haven in milwakeee its been closed for about 7 years i have 8 copies of the second cd still sealed yes i bought them at a goodwill store real cheep i was very unhappy to see that some ahole gave them to goodwill if anybody want a copy email me at thanks bob anyinfo on any of the band me

From: Dean Date: August 4, 2004 at 21:07
Hey metalhead at least they gave em to goodwill. Some people just throw 'em away and then they're gone for good- do you have much other local stuff from Milwaukee? There were a lot of good bands in that area for quite a while.

From: metalhead@centu Date: August 9, 2004 at 4:25
hello i taped just about every band in milwaukee like warp drive doc hammer problem child the list could go on and on i have over 8000 shows yes over 8000 shows from back then while everybody was getting drunk i taped every thing i could i would travel 250 miles from tomahawk to milwaukee every weekend for around 7-8 years i even have a show from bad boy most people thought i was krazy and nuts but i look at it this way i have very good memories on video thanks bob

From: Geoff Date: November 15, 2004 at 2:11
Musically, I'd compare these guys to the 'Evolution' CD by Misha Calvin, perhaps. Mighty, very well played, ballsy and heavy melodic riff filled rock, with spectacular choruses of melodic proportion. I believe there's a filler or two, but these guys were a f*cking good band.

From: Jay Date: February 3, 2005 at 14:23
Hey - looks like its been a while since anyone posted here - anyway - I designed both of the PT cd booklets, and used to work with Wagner - the lead guitarist. I'd be more than willing to send ya mp3's of their stuff - let me know! - adios!!

From: juan carlos Date: July 22, 2007 at 16:19
Tremenda sorpresa! MelodicHardRock/Heavy de gran factura con unas guitarras y sobre todo esos solos bien alucinantes realmente para escucharlo a todo volúmen. Lástima que solo sean 5 temas + 1 intro 1 acústica y 1 instrumental(de los 3 me quedo con la instrumental, vaya solos!!). Las guitarras y los solos son lo mejor del disco aparte de la excelente voz. "Power Trip" lo mas fuerte, "TKO" Coros/solo Muy bueno, "Fortune of Love" y "Turn on the Music" Voz a lo Kiske. Súper-Recomendado. 9/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: July 22, 2007 at 23:22
Great Melodic Hard Rock, Gran album Gran estilo 6 Grandes cortes un muy buen acustico un trabajo casi impecable que recomiendo a todos los hispanos que saben de lo bueno Highly Recommended! 9/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 2, 2013 at 20:08
Another band that tried hard to make it big but in a wrong decade(90's)and probably they wouldn't have made so much "noise" in the 80's either mainly because they sounded so "Motley Crue/Faster Pussycat" influeced that the lack of originality would have killed them at once IMO..."Fortune Of Love","Power Trip"( ),"Turn On The Music" & "Tomorrow"(nice) are the ones i liked...70/100

From: hair metal again Date: May 14, 2021 at 7:34
excellent hard rock indie for PICASSO TRIGGER with their sound being a mix of bands like LILLIAN AXE,WORLDS APART or SAVANNAH !great vocals,guitar riffs& solos and some fine melodic lines are offered in songs like "fortune of love" and some stronger in "power trip" and "tko"!highly recommended
