In this special issue Ugly Things pays tribute to Phil May of the Pretty Things. Includes interviews with those who knew him best, including his close friend and lifelong collaborator, Dick Taylor, as well as an array of rare and previously unseen Pretty Things photos. Also in this issue, the story behind the Electras' gnarly sixties punk masterpiece 'Dirty Old Man,' the tale of Midwest psychedelic masters the Paisleys ('Cosmic Mind At Play'), Southern California garage-psych combo the Search, guitarist Craig Tarwater (Hawk & the Randelas, Sons Of Adam, Daily Flash, Arthur Lee & Love), and a night of music and mirth with Hasil Adkins. We also explore the world of gypsy jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo and its intersections with pop and psychedelia in the 1960s, and tell the strange story of the San Jose garage pop group People, who recorded a hit version of the Zombies 'I Love You,' only to become enmeshed in the sinister world of Scientology. All this and a lot more, including as always our expansive review sections covering all the latest reissues and rock & roll-related books.
