Singles Going Single #118 - A Picture Made "God Loves a Hell of a Man" 7" (1986, Beam)

This single was noted in the comments for my recent sharing of A Picture Made's ep, Past. Offering the same song, "God Loves a Hell of a Man" on both sides, we don't exactly get double the pleasure from this very limited 45 (ostensibly sent to subscribers of the defunct Jet Lag music 'zine and radio types), but it's a sparkling Ricken-pop tune bejeweled with chiming chords and a decent enough hook. Just what the doctor ordered. You can also investigate Ritual, another set of recordings from this Kansas-based outfit on the website linked above.

Good stuff - thank you! I taped this single 20 years ago from a friend who had it, but the tape disappeared ages ago. Nice to hear this little gem again.

Link has "expired," or so they say. Can we get a re-up, please?

Thank you! Saw these guys play Parody Hall in Kansas City in the late 80s and loved them but never saw any of their recordings till now.
