It Ain't Pretty

saki is now proud to be carrying one of the best fanzines around; Ugly Things. Writer and publisher Mike Stax has be been pouring his love for all things 60s rock into the UT pages for some 20 years. Profiles, interviews, reviews, rantings, features. There is no better place to get your garage, psych, beat, punk fix. Plain and simple.

The mag gets its name from the UK's legendary cult R&B and psych combo The Pretty Things. They got their name from the man who made the BEAT, Bo Diddley. 45 year later, UT still flys their freak flag proud.

Past issues have shed light on the likes of Nederbeat giants The Outsiders (not to be confused with the Ohio combo that hit big with "Time Won't Let Me"), The Chocolate Watch Band, The Missing Links, The Standells, The Troggs, The Seeds, Los Saicos, and of course, The Pretty Things.

"Wild Sounds From Past Dimensions"

UT's most recent issue (Summer/Fall 2010 #30) includes a feature on The Kinks accompanied by interviews conducted by Jon Savage (not the sex advise columnist, though we do love us some Savage Love), a profile on The Master Apprentices (War Or Hands Of Time" is just the tip of the iceberg), The Q'65, the phenomenally exhaustive reissue review section, and much more.

"Where else could you a read 20 page interview with a band that put out one single over 40 years ago!?!

RIYL: Kicks, Bomp!, Mojo, being a complete nerd.

"It's tops."
