S.F. Sorrow = Papersleeve = (CD)
In 1969, the Pretty Things performed their recently released album SF Sorrow in its entirety live. Or rather they didn't: unable to work out how to reproduce its complex patchwork of sounds on stage, they opted to mime to backing tapes. Miming an entire gig would probably have spelled disaster anyway, even had the whole band - and, crucially, their soundman - not opted to take LSD before the performance. The ensuing debacle is recalled on the DVD accompanying this deluxe reissue. "Every time he pressed the button to start the tapes, because he was on acid, nothing happened," remembers singer Phil May, wearing the strained smile of a man who remembers rather too clearly what it feels like to stand in front of an audience, on LSD, with no sound coming out of the speakers. 2011 re issue.
