Originally an offshoot of the primordial Rolling Stones, lead guitarist Dick Taylor broke away to form The Pretty Things in 1962. Securing a major label deal within months of their inception, the band attracted press attention with their unfettered power and controversial, unkempt appearance, their raunchy style of R&B spawned a run of successful releases.
By 1967, The Pretty Things had become immersed in the underground psychedelic scene, developing a more harmony-led, experimental sound. Continuing to play live and record, The Pretty Things continue their evolution as an enduring musical force.
"One of the country’s foremost guitar bands, bringing their own distinctive brand of electrifying and ethereal rock ‘n’ roll. A spiritual musical experience unlike anything you’ve ever heard." - The Elgin
"Du Bellows are by far one of the most interesting and musically adept bands I have seen recently. There is a cosmic counterpoint alive and well here." - Jimmy Page
Du Bellows have rehearsed and gigged hard and along the way have received positive response from the media including Mojo Editor-in-Chief-Phil Alexander- who featured them in his Planet Rock FM radio show-Mojo Rocks- and Classic Rock magazine who included their eponymous track-Isa Du Bellow- on the cover mount of the June2013 issue. Right now they are writing and performing new material, travelling, creating and looking to record.
