Picasso (ピカソ Pikaso) is a Japanese rock band which made its debut in 1984 with Honki! Tricky Lady. In 1986, their experimental sound gained them wide popularity among anime fans with their hits Cinema and Fantasy, both theme songs for the anime TV series Maison Ikkoku. After not releasing anything since 1995, the band signed with Metronom Records in 2000 in order to produce and handle new talent.
