Sister Rain was formed in January 1988. After just a few months and one gig, the band was signed on Voices of Wonder records. American underground and psychedelia from the late 60’s were important sources of inspiration. From 1988 to 1993 the band released four albums as well as participating on several compilations. The band also became known for its artwork; both record covers and posters have been included in art books and some of the albums were releases in limited versions that has become collectors items.
