Died Pretty (sometimes The Died Pretty) was an indie rock band centred around singer Ron Peno and guitarist Brett Myers. The band formed in Sydney, Australia in early 1984 and played their last shows in 2002. Their music started from a base of early electric Bob Dylan with psychedelic influences. They were also notably influenced by The Velvet Underground and Television. They were managed their whole career by John Needham of Citadel Records, their label, and were to some degree the Citadel house band.
