Kinks Reunion In 2014? Makes Sense

Here’s to better days…

And so Dave Davies claims the chance of a 50th year anniversary for the Kinks are 50/50 (in Rolling Stone) and what do we think? Since Pete is dead and Mick, well dave makes it clear he doesn’t want Mick back, I guess what we are getting is the brother davies on tour to make a mint and, yes, we will take it won’t we.

There are those who think the Kinks were the greatest band of the British Invasion era, and they weren’t, but they were close. The greats go like this:

1. The Beatles

2. The Stones

3. The Kinks.

4. The Who

But while we saw the Stones in 2012 and the Who around the same time, McCartney over the summer, the Kinks have been missing in action and we need them next year for their 50th Anniversary and dave says there is a 50/50 chance of us getting him. So, that’s great right? Because, remember, last time round Ray was pushing for a reunion and Dave was saying “when hell freezes over” so, to read between the lines (and not by much), Dave is hurting financially and might be more than willing to reform the band.

Ray and Dave have been rejiggering their catalog for deacades now. Think Visual was in the late 1980, and it wasn’t that great, and since then there have been the two Ray solo albums (one of which is very good) and the new Ray which kinda sucks to be dead honest.

Given the state of affairs, a tour seems inevitable and I would guess it would be very very good. Talk about a catalog to fall back on, the mind boggles as to what they could provide we Kinks Kultists. My assumption is that Ray is too much of a pro to get into the deep album cuts, we’ll be lucky if we get “Harry Rag”

When I get a second I am gonna write up a dream set, till then I can dream about the Kinks in 2014
