“Electric Wizard and The Electric Acid Orgy are unbelievably proud to present their very special guests, British psych-rock legends The Pretty Things …the 1st debauched rock’n’roll band of the 60s”, says Jus Oborn. “The original bad boys of rock that outpartied the Stones and the Pistols, they had the first drug-pop-hit in 1966 with ‘L.S.D.’, singer Phil May was the first ‘long haired weirdo’ to inspire the kids to freak out and they had the original wildest drummer in rock that inspired Keith Moon…they did it all first.”
“Then between 67-70 they recorded a string of acid fried classics that pushed the envelope of guitar music: ‘Defecting Grey’ ,‘Balloon Burning’, ‘Mr. Evasion’, ‘Old Man Going’, ‘Eagle’s Son’, ‘Alexander’ etc etc… absolutely blew our minds with a twin guitar fury that became heavy metal music.”
“And thanks to the DeWolfe library they also turned up in British Exploitation movie classics like ‘Take an Easy Ride’ (where we first heard them) their screeching guitars accentuating the sleazy action…. and they have agreed to play a special one-off set of these searing acid rock classics for us and you.”
“Thank you sirs from Electric Wizard (the 2nd worst behaved rock band in the world).”
