£SD-The Pretty Things

This song may seem blatantly about drugs but it's actually about British money. L=£, the symbol for Pounds, S=Shillings and D=Pence. The Pretty Things are one of my absolute favorite British Invasion groups even though I didn't discover them until the 21st Century. In their early years, they could do English white boy blues better than the Yardbirds and the Rolling Stones, their middle years defined psychedelia (as well as giving us the first real rock opera) and they've been together as ahard-rockin' band pretty much ever since!
