The Kinks: God Save The Kinks - A Biography by Rob Jovanovic

(Aurum Press) Paperback, 13,3 x 20,3 x 2,5 cm, english, 432 page, 16 page color and b/w illustrations.

In August 1964 The Kinks released their third single. After a little noticed debut and a follow-up that had failed to chart at all, Pye Records were threatening to annul the group’s contract. But with its unforgettable distorted guitar riff, “You Really Got Me” went on to reach No.1, entering the US Top Ten later the same year. Followed by a string of hits, it marked the breakthrough of one of Britain’s most innovative and influential bands, and a turning point in the fortunes of two brothers whose troubled story is as tumultuous and characterful as the music they produced: Ray and Dave Davies. Born into a deeply musical working-class family in London’s Muswell Hill, Ray and Dave grew up in a city recovering from the bombs and privations of the Second World War, and, more than any other musicians of the Sixties, they crafted the soundtrack that made it swing again. In songs such as “Dedicated Follower of Fashion”, “Sunny Afternoon” – which toppled The Beatles to become the hit of Summer 1966 – “Waterloo Sunset”, “Days” and “Lola”, they drew on music hall, folk and rhythm and blues to craft a peculiarly English pop idiom, inspiring generations of songwriters from David Bowie to Jarvis Cocker and Damon Albarn. Pocked by sibling rivalry, furious on-stage violence, walkouts, overdoses, a career-throttling ban from the US, gross self-indulgence, and the band's curious rebirth as Eighties stadium rockers, the story laid bare in God Save The Kinks is one of the greatest in British pop history.

Kinks

Founded in 1964 in London The Kinks are one of the most consistent and important groups on the English rock and pop scene, although they have been absent from the single hit lists for some time. Under the leading influence of bandleader and author Ray Davies, the Kinks already developed their own aggressive style in the early years of the beat age, which was reflected in the early hits of the group ("You Really Got Me', "Louie Louie', "All Day And All Of The Night', "Tired Of Waiting For You' and others). Finally, the quintet (along with Ray Davies, his brother Dave[voc + g], John Dalton[b], Mick Avory[dr] and John Gosling[keyboards]) developed into a musically mature group that was often compared to the social-satirical work "Arthur" with the Who and their pop opera "Tommy".

Ray Davies now turned more and more sarcastically to show business, which he sharply criticized in his following songs. After the success of the Kinks LPs "Muswell Hillbillies' and "Everybody's in Showbiz ~ Everbody's A Star' Ray Davies wrote the musical "Perservation', after which the currently last LP was recorded by the Kinks, "Soap Opera'.
