Every gig I've Ever Seen #12. Pretty Things.



Pretty Things. The Marquee. 1982


A coach from my college was going up to London cheap so we went. Found the Marquee as I knew the band was playing there, having seen the advert in Melody Maker (RIP). They were Big in the Sixties, kinda. The band were my age now (40-something) and probably trying really hard but it wasn’t The Clash. Horrible, sludgy blues rock. Crap sound. Nobody there. The Marquee was legendary but it was a toilet really. Bought a T-shirt half-price from one of the band’s wives at the front door and wore it for years
