DON'T BRING ME DOWN...UNDER: The Pretty Things in New Zealand, 1965

By Mike Stax, Andy Neill & John Baker.


In 1965, while other British groups set their sights on America, the Pretty Things invaded New Zealand, a culturally sheltered colonial outpost 12,000 miles from their home. A disparate bunch of art student malcontents, brought together in one unholy collision of no holds barred '60s rhythm 'n' blues and self-expression, the Pretty Things were the most extreme band of their day. Fueled by a baiting, sensationalist tabloid press, their loud, anarchic music and outrageous antics on and off stage -- particularly those of drummer Viv Prince -- ignited a national scandal and a public outcry that would spread from the newspaper headlines to the Houses of Parliament.

More than ten years in the making, DON'T BRING ME DOWN...UNDER documents the Pretty Things' surreal, outlandish and frequently hilarious exploits in New Zealand through interviews with most of the major participants, press clippings and more than 180 rare photographs, including 8 pages in full-colour. DON'T BRING ME DOWN...UNDER is a must read, not just for Pretty Things fans, but for anyone fascinated by an era when rock 'n' roll was not only outrageously FUN but also a force of subversion and ultimately liberation for an entire generation of young people around the world.

120 pages / perfect bound / full-color glossy cover + 8 pages of color photos.
