For over 50 years, The Pretty Things have proudly, unapologetically and righteously scorched their own, unique trail through contemporary music. A half-century (plus) of the raunchiest white-boy rhythm and blues, of punch-ups, dazzling highs and epic struggles, of innovation and exultation, lauded by their peers, vilified by authority, a crucial influence on successive generations of acts, The Pretty Things make it to the mid twenty teens with mojo intact and edge unblunted.
The epochal British rock 'n' roll band is being celebrated with the Bouquets From a Cloudy Sky box set that is out February 23 in the UK and is limited to just 2,000 copies.
