The Pretty Things, wildly influential band that hardly anyone heard about in the States.


Update: Still inching along slowly, with your help and your donations. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it and all the kind words that have gone with it. You're making a difference and it's huge. And that's why we can't stop now, a little less than halfway to our goal. It's crucial that every penny counts in chipping away at the potential disaster. Without your help, this whole site could go away and the archive could be lost. I don't want either of those things to happen and that's why I'm making this appeal. Any amount you're willing to donate will be deeply appreciated. We can do this, and we can make it happen. Just a little more way to go. Please help keep Newstalgia from disaster; consider any amount - but please consider an amount. We need you!

Staying with some of the "bad boys" of The British Invasion. Wildly popular and influential in their native UK, The Pretty Things were relegated to the more-or-less/ also-ran category. And it stuck with them for the better part of their careers - which was a shame because it wasn't true. The Pretty Things were true originals and, as legend has it, The Pretty Things and The Rolling Stones were very much in competition with each other even to the point of members crossing over briefly into each others bands.

With all that in mind - here is the rundown of what's up on the player tonight.
