One of Britain's most veteran rock'n'roll bands, The Pretty Things, are experiencing a second youth, something they prove every time they release a new album. On this occasion, as part of the SON Estrella de Galicia season, they will be presenting their latest album, The Sweet Pretty Things (Are In Bed Now, Of Course…).
As if they have sipped from the Holy Grail, it seems that time makes no difference to The Pretty Things. Five decades on the stage dolling out the best in British rock music left, right, and centre. In the shadow of the Stones, Phil May and company have always had fixed ideas and convictions about their sounds, which welcome rock and its derivations.
Creators of garage punk in the sixties, The Pretty Things have been innovating in music for five decades. Artists such as Iggy Pop, the Ramones, the Sex Pistols and Nirvana have modelled their sounds and their lifestyle to carve out excellent professional careers for themselves.
With The Sweet Pretty Things (Are In Bed Now, Of Course…), they have moved back into the spotlight of world music with a record filled with youth, enthusiasm, and truly raw sounds, combined with sweet authentic blues, making it seem as if time has stood still for this band.
