The Pretty Things never made it to America in the 1960s. While their contemporaries were touring the States, building brand recognition and laying the foundation for longterm careers in the business, the Pretty Things were toiling in clubs and concert halls across Europe, or — more bizarrely — attempting to conquer New Zealand (they succeeded only in outraging it). Whether through bad judgment, bad timing or simple bad luck that vital mid-60s U.S. tour never happened. But somehow word still got around, and for those in the know the Pretty Things became a secret touchstone, their image and their music signifying the wildest and most exciting extremes of the English sound. Despite their low profile, the Pretty Things had an impact on countless American garage bands from the Seeds to MC5.
