They started out in 1989 constantly recording demos. These demos are now sought-out collector's items by fans of the band. Nonetheless, in 1992, they signed to Creator/FourADRecords and scrapped most of the older material in exchange for a thicker, slower version of that material. They released their first album, ''Down Colorful Hill'' to nearly universal critical acclaim.

* CoverVersion: On ''Songs for a Blue Guitar'', we have "Silly Love Songs" by Music/PaulMcCartney, "Long Distance Runaround" by Music/{{Yes}}, and "All Mixed Up" by Music/TheCars. The ''Bridge Album'' gives us "I Am a Rock" by Music/SimonAndGarfunkel, and a version of the "Star Spangled Banner". There's also an entire Mark Kozelek album dedicated to AC/DC covers.

* LyricalDissonance: "Lord Kill the Pain" is one of the most upbeat sounding songs in the band's entire catalog. The [[http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/45076/ lyrics on the other]] hand aren't nearly as sunny.

** ''Songs For A Blue Guitar'' qualifies as well. It takes the folk influence of ''Ocean Beach'' a step further and lays the template for the work Kozelek would later do with Sun Kil Moon

* VocalEvolution: Starting with ''Songs for a Blue Guitar'', Kozelek's voice went from being very strained and somber to higher pitched and with more of a distinct Music/NeilYoung influence.

After the release of the first album, they became the new shining beacons of the 4AD label along with the AmericanMusicClub. The next year would be spent in exhausting touring and recording for the band, resulting in two [[SelfTitledAlbum Self Titled Albums]] (and yes, they WERE in fact trying to mess with their fanbase). These albums would later be renamed to ''Rollercoaster'' and ''Bridge'' based off of their art work. Both of these albums are considered to be the epitome of the sadcore movement.

After the success of ''Songs For A Blue Guitar'' the band got back together to record what would be their last album, ''Old Ramon''. Just as they were looking forward to having it released in 1997, Island dropped them and then proceeded to refuse to release the album. It would take Kozelek another 4 years to finally raise enough money to buy the rights back from Island and release the album on Creator/SubPop in 2001. By this time the band had already moved onto new horizons and RHP was no more. Kozelek went on to create Music/SunKilMoon, while other members went onto solo projects.

* BittersweetEnding- The final song of ''Rollercoaster'', "Brown Eyes". The entire album is about Mark's stressful life and situations. The song is almost like a lullaby he's singing to his former self, as if to put it to rest.

* InNameOnly- Once again, ''Songs For A Blue Guitar''. It was meant to be Kozelek's solo debut.
* LeaveTheCameraRunning- On the track "Over My Head" on ''Ocean Beach'' there's a few seconds of the band just talking in the recording studio before the songs starts and after the song ends.
* LighterAndSofter- ''Ocean Beach'' is considerably more upbeat than the preceding albums

* MeanCharacterNiceActor- Kozelek seems to like playing the role of a snobby Jerkass on stage, but many people who have interviewed him and his closest friends all claim that he is one of the nicest guys out there. A possible explanation for the Jerkass behavior on stage is so that way he doesn't get obsessively stalky fans.

* MisBlamed - Ivo Watts Russell is actually not the one that caused most of the problems with the band. It was actually the fault of 4AD's American branch in general, which was being run by executives from Warner Bros.
