The Kinks: God Save The Kinks - A Biography

(2013/Aurum Press) Rob Jovanovic, English, Hardback, 228x151 mm, 330 pages, 14 photo pages.
Tells the complete story of one of Britain's most innovative and influential bands, and the story of two brothers whose troubled story is as tumultuous and characterful as the music they produced: Ray and Dave Davies. In songs such as 'Dedicated Follower of Fashion', 'Sunny Afternoon' - which toppled The Beatles to become the hit of Summer 1966, 'Lola' and 'You Really Got Me', they drew on music hall, folk and rhythm & blues to craft a peculiarly English pop idiom, inspiring generations of songwriters

Artist description "Kinks, The"


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'.
