The Pretty Things Where have you been all my life?
« on: September 24, 2013, 10:03:34 PM »

So I recently heard a song by the Pretty Things called "Midnight to Six Man" which I took to be a reference to the Clash song "White Man in Hammersmith Palais" when in fact, I had it backwards and the Pretty Things song pre-dated the Clash by about 15 years. From what I've gathered, the Pretty Things were the British Invasion band that never invaded and remain largely unknown in the US. Which is a pity because they fucking rock.

Curious if any of y'all know much about them.

The Pretty Things were brilliant. I love all those old crusty bastards like Hawkwind, Pink Fairies, The Groundhogs, etc. Great stuff.

Read about these guys in Magnet recently. I checked them out rather superficially and liked them, but I haven't really invested much listening time in them.

You know me, sweetheart. If a band doesn't wash, it must be a winner.

Cashed in an Amazon gift certificate on S. F. Sarrow. They like to mention that it was recorded at Abby Road in 1967, the same year that Sgt. Pepper's and Piper at the Gates of Dawn were recorded there.
