Deep Grooves: The Pretty Things – Balboa Island (Zoho Roots)

To give you a little insight as to how long this legendary band has been plying their musical trade, the band began in 1962 and founded by Dick Taylor and Phil May, bandmembers who were kicked out of The Rolling Stones for being too ugly. If that isn’t hard enough to believe (after all, who’s could be uglier than The Rolling Stones? I mean, pick one, they’re all pretty hideous. Then and now.) check this out: like the Stones, the band pretty much has the same membership now as when they started all those years ago. For those who have never heard of the band, their story is simply incredible, and if I had a book’s worth of space, I’d tell you tales about the band’s exploits that would make you think the Stones were churchgoers.
