Biography

The Pink Fairies were a British rock music group active in the London underground scene of the early 1970s . They promoted free music and anarchy and often performed impromptu gigs and other agitprop stunts. The band led by Paul Rudolph on blues guitar and two drummers: Twink, and Russ Hunter; it went through many different line-ups of band members over the years.

The Pink Fairies evolved out of a drinking club formed by Steve Peregrin Took (formerly Marc Bolan’s partner in T Rex, the Pretty Things, the Deviants also called the “Social” Deviants) and Syd Barrett in 1969. Took, along with Mick Farren and Twink (previously of The Fairies, Tomorrow, and Pretty Things) named the group Pink Fairies, only to see Twink appropriate the name for his new project (Pink Fairies Mark 2) with three ex-Deviants members. Mick Farren’s first solo album, Mona, features the original Pink Fairies Mark 1 line-up.

It is worth noting that according to Jason Ankeny of All Music Guide, “the Social Deviants…consisted primarily of vocalist Mick Farren, guitarist Paul Rudolph, bassist Duncan Sanderson and drummer Russell Hunter. The group also featured satellite members Marc Bolan, Steve Peregrine Took and players from the band Group X, later rechristened Hawkwind.”

    strange really coz they were all about what the punk rock scene generated but never got any feed back from it .a band that never got the acclaim they should have.and yet bands like the stooges,mc5 are given the kudos and were'nt anywhere near the anarchy of the fairies.still somebody got them to stay still long enough to give us three good studio albums

    i bought never never land when it came out.a gatefold sleeve in a 12" printed plastic wallet with a paper sleeve printed in blue ink.second pressings were just a single sleeve.kings pf oblivion had a tri-fold cardboard poster of the band,so obviously the label thought they were worth the effort,why werent they bigger? it was all our fault! why didnt we get behind them more than we did? ya dont know what ya got til its gone....

    oh, I love argues about genres....so....for me... I'd say that they sounds like an electroclash with influences of early IDM. No matter what they were, they were good band.
