British music icons The Pretty Things have announced a screening of their new concert film ‘The Final Bow’ to take place at London’s Regent Street Cinema on Saturday 28th March as part of the Sound Screen festival. The film screening will be followed by a rare Q&A and acoustic blues set from Phil May and Dick Taylor.
Released on Madfish in November 2019, The Final Bow featuring David Gilmour & Van Morrison, documents The Pretty Things final electric concert from December 2018 . A three-hour, multi-set, sold out show where they brought the curtain down on a ground-breaking musical career spanning over 55 years. Featuring behind the scenes documentary footage and interviews with Phil, the band and more alongside concert footage. This screening is an opportunity to get up close and personal with some genuine icons.
Invaluable to the development of British music, The Pretty Things have been a critical success and a huge influence on artists as diverse as David Bowie, Aerosmith, The Ramones, Bob Dylan, The Sex Pistols, The White Stripes, Kasabian, The Lightning Seeds and countless more. A who’s who of music legends site The Pretty Things and their outrageous behaviour, incandescent stage performances and astonishing catalogue of remarkable, ground-breaking recordings as fundamental in the creation of their own work.
The Final Bow is a startling and essential snapshot of a band who, for over 55 years, have never stopped pushing, growing and honing their craft – a concert and film 5 decades in the making. Check out the film trailer, here
