The Pretty Things - New 7" Single

The Pretty Things new 7" is out now on Fruits de Mer Records (and also available via The Ugly Things magazine). It combines a stunning new live version of their classic R&B track 'Honey, I Need' (taken from their 2010 gig at the 100 Club, where they played the whole of their first album for the first time ever - soon to be released by the band on vinyl) with a previously-unreleased demo of 'I Can Never Say', found on a 1965 acetate - a real archive find!  

Quite possibly the UK's finest ever R&B/psych band with a new release that shows they're still brilliant live 40-odd years on... 

1,200 copies of the 7" have been pressed on white, red and black vinyl.
