Name?
Dead Pretties (Jacob, Oscar, Ben).

Where are you from?
Tottenham, North London.

What do you do?
Spend our time honing a variety of different noises.

Describe your style in three words?
Terrible, blind, tasteless.

You can make a record with anyone from history?
Tom Waits, Earth Died Screaming.

What’s the best show you’ve ever been too?
Mōnk at The Lock Tavern.

You can spend an hour with anyone from history?
Socrates: I love the sandals.


Dead Pretties are a London trio who play punk-edged chaotic rock n roll which begs to be seen live.

Tipped as part of our British New Wave 2017 they released their debut single 'Social Experiment' via Nice Swan records on 10th February 2017. Listen below.

What was the first song you played on repeat?
'The Real Me' by The Who.

One record you would keep forever?
'Solid Air' by John Martyn.

Song you wish you had written?
'Sixteen Saltines' by Jack White.

Song that defines the teenage you?
'F***about' by Drenge.

A song lyric that inspires you?
"The ghost of electricity howled in the bones of her face"
'Visions of Johanna' by Bob Dylan.

Any songs you can’t stop listening to right now?

'Satisfied' by Fat White Family
Because they’re the only well-known band of the last five years that actually broke new ground.

'Jagged Bottom Cloud' by Mōnk
Listen to it on SoundCloud and you will understand, and if you don’t then have a pasty.

'Two Time Slim' by Snatch and the Poontangs
Not strictly contemporary but the lyrics are hilarious.
