Article in the Daily Mirror..

http://www.mirror.co.uk/showbiz/2007/12/26/kinks-set-to-reform-89520-20265546/

Could be interesting - I saw Ray Davis last year and he was amazingly good!

Cheers

Saw them a couple of times in mid 90's. They were still a great live band. Would be great for Croppers.

I saw them a lot (mainly at the Civic in Guildford) in the mid 80's...there was a real (new) mod versus 'rock/hippie' fan divide in the audience, and I seem to remember Ray did a great line in winding up the mods in their shiny new parkas...this was Merton Parkas/ Secret Affair sort of time...  Then the Kinks had a hit with Come Dancing and the audience changed again...and I think Mick Avory left around then which left it as the Ray Davies band with an increasingly grumpy Dave on guitar....  Dave is very odd btw...I met him once...very into his sci-fi and UFOs and hallucinogens...

I wonder how much the 'journalist' gets paid to copy articles out of Record Collector.  I could do that   Smiley

Ray has been saying this for a while - so I don't think its anything new.

It would be great to see them with Pete Quaife, I think he missed out on the payday. I believe he did a tour with a band made up of ex members of the band which might have been fun.
I'm a bit of a Kinks obsessive (possibly my favourite band after RT), and have seen them live 5 or 6 times. Funny how they played better when Ray and Dave were having a barney.

I would like to see them do VGPS or Arthur all the way through.

The Kast Off Kinks I think they are called, normally consisting of:

Mick Avory: Drums, (occasional) Lead Vocals
Dave Clarke: Lead Guitar and Vocals
John Dalton: Bass Guitar, Guitar, Backing Vocals, (occasional) Lead Vocals
John Gosling: Keyboards

Here's their site http://www.whykinks.net/links/kast/start.htm

Yep - with Avory as well.  I still reckon it's odds against though.  Yes, DD has had a stroke.  But he's also bloody weird too...well into his psychedelics and into UFOs and plenty of weirder sh*t as well.... The fact he also hates his brother and has a serious inferiority complex means it's always going to be on a knife edge.  Still - would be fun though, wouldn't it...?

Managed to see them at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam in the 80's. They were brilliant.

6 CD boxed set due soon.

Unfortunately its 70% of stuff that fans will already have, 30% of 'never released' stuff - but thats nearly all alternative versions of existing songs.
A misssed opportunity I think.

First Ever Kinks Box Set, Released December 1st on Universal
The Kinks return in December with ‘Picture Book’: the ultimate Kinks kollection. Compiled with the help of Ray Davies, ‘Picture Book’ is a six CD box set of rarities, live versions and classic originals celebrating one of one of Britain’s most successful and influential bands.
Featuring the songwriting genius of Ray Davies and the guitar virtuosity of brother Dave, hits like ‘You Really Got Me’, ‘Lola’, ‘Waterloo Sunset’, ‘All Day And All Of The Night’ and ‘Sunny Afternoon’ not only defined British cool in the sixties and seventies, but also cemented the band’s place in Rock ‘n’ Roll mythology. ‘Picture Book’ is the first ever Kinks box set, chronicling the band’s 40 year career over six chronologically-ordered CDs and one 60-page, full colour booklet. Each disc deals with a particular chapter in the band’s history, from their 1964 breakthrough onwards, while the booklet features a full retelling of the Kinks story penned by esteemed rock critic Peter Doggett.

The booklet also includes a personal introduction by Ray Davies, as well as a Kinks timeline and never before seen photos.
Beautifully packaged in a classic, lift-lid style box, ‘Picture Book’ features well over a hundred tracks - a third of which are previously unreleased or new to CD. These include: Rare Demos, Mono Versions and Alternate Mixes (inc. early demos recorded as The Ravens; mono single versions of ‘Waterloo Sunset’, ‘Lola’ & ‘Apeman’; and previously unreleased versions of ‘Dedicated Follower of Fashion’ and ‘Dead End Street’)
Archived BBC Television & Session Material (inc. a televised 1964 introduction by Brian Matthew, and session versions of ‘This Strange Effect’ and ‘Love Me Til The Sun Shines’) Live Renditions (inc. live versions of ‘Slum Kids’, ‘Alcohol’ & ‘Low Budget’)
All these feature alongside the classic originals, as ‘Picture Book’ revisits such classic albums as ‘The Kinks’, ‘Face To Face’, ‘The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society’ and ‘Arthur’.
