The Pretty Things, a band that formed 50 years ago, is set to play The Carlisle, Hastings on Friday, April 26.

The Pretty Things are an English rock and roll band from London, which originally formed in 1963.

The name is taken from Bo Diddley’s 1955 song Pretty Thing.

Their most commercially successful period was the mid-1960s, although they continue to perform to this day.

Legend David Bowie covered two of their songs on his album Pin Ups.
