Pretty Addicted Interview
Written & Produced by Meryl DeWitt

While American bands continue to sell packaged garbage, the folks across the pond are working to keep real dirty metal alive. London natives Pretty Addicted are no exception. Both in sound and appearance, they aren't afraid to get in your face. Recently we had a chat with their gnarly lead, Vicious!

Meryl DeWitt: Who's the trouble maker of the band? What's the worst trouble they've ever gotten themselves or others into?
Vicious Precious: We're all trouble makers in our own way. I'm [Vicious] the one who’s going to pour you another drink and keep you fucked up while going on a massive, passionate rant about how to say "fuck you" to the system and encourage you to be who you want to be, no matter who you offend. Dan's the pranskter of the band. He's as likely to dare you to get your ass waxed with masking tape as he is to get so drunk he falls flat on his face. And then the four of us have to carry him into the tent which is NOT an easy task! Sakura is the guy who gets naked while trying to turn your boyfriend gay, so I'd watch out if you have a hot boyfriend!
Meryl: What's the best prank your band has ever pulled or been victim to?
Vicious: We're all pranksters, but Dan takes the cake. As I referred to in the previous question he dared Sweeney, (formally) from the band The Acid Ballet, to have his ass waxed, by Dan himself, with masking tape. The video of this online speaks for itself!
Meryl: If you had to give up one of your vices for a year, which would it be?
Vicious: I wouldn't.
Meryl: What was the first album you ever owned?
Vicious: If I say Spice Girls, will I be less cool?
