The Painted Ship were a psych-rock quartet from Vancouver, Canada who emerged in 1965 originally entitled The Wee Beasties (this was the name the inventor of the microscope gave to the “animals” he saw through that instrument). Consisting of buckskin-clad Bill Hay (vocals), Bob Rowden (guitar), Ken Wain (keyboards) and Barry Rowden (drums), The Painted Ship recorded only two singles in the late 60’s, releasing both on the London label. Their first single was ‘Little White Lies’ with ‘Frustration’ as the b-side. This was followed by ‘Audience Reflections (From Polyana’s Dreamworld)’ with ‘And She Said Yes’ with on the flip-side.
