The Pretty Things – Bare As Bone, Bright As Blood (LP Red)
23.00 € inc. VAT
The new studio album of gritty, acoustic, roots recordings from the enduring, iconic, anti-heroes of British R&B’s 1st wave and beyond
The 15th May 2020 marked the death of Phil May, the legendary lead singer with The Pretty Things.
At the time of his death, Phil was hugely excited about the impending release of the first-ever, all-acoustic Pretty Things album, which had recently been completed.
The words below were written on the 5th May, just nine days before Phil died. We have left them unchanged as they remain relevant to the album and particularly to Phil and his connection to it. Even at this stage in his career, Phil was enthusiastically looking forward to performing these dark songs live and showcasing fresh on-stage approaches.
Unfortunately, the songs will never be heard live with Phil’s voice, but that doesn’t diminish the power of this remarkable record which stands as a touching tribute to one of the most significant artists of a rightly celebrated generation (and beyond).
