Re: The Kinks Thread

Alan Freeman incorrectly announced him as 'Ray Davies'. :oops: Yeah..that was hysterical, but sad in a sense because even then Dave wanted to escape Ray's shadow and be well respected in his own right... I assume that the other Kinks played on Dave's solo records of that period? Making them, in eff...

Re: Overrated Music

Genesis had a great run of hit singles in the UK late 70s-early 80s.

They fitted in well with the scene at the time - Follow You Follow Me, Turn It On Again, Abacab, Paper Late, Mama. 8-)

Like others, they were not so good in the-post Live Aid globalisation :(

Re: The "Covers" Thread

Great to have that as your Class Song, KLL 8-)

We had no such thing where I went to school. But if we did, that is the sort of song I would have chosen.

'Death Of A Clown' - very atmospheric song.

When he performed it on Top of the Pops in 1967, Alan Freeman incorrectly announced him as 'Ray Davies'. :oops:

Dave had to shout to correct him.

Re: The "Covers" Thread

It was a workmanlike cover of 'Hey Bulldog'.

A better interpretation of a Beatles song was Joe Cocker 'With A Little Help From My Friends':

Look forward to it, you have reviewed some good music, much of which was influential on Blur no doubt.

Re: Underrated Music

And The Style Council... better than The Jam or Weller solo. Paul Weller probably at his most potent during late-Jam, early-Style Council. He went into a lull in the later 80s, as did so much music. Simple Minds suffered at this time as well. As 101reykjavik said, I think their earlier work was bet...

Re: MrMagpie's Music Book Reviews

It looks a good book, Mr Magpie, as does 'Jimi Hendrix - Setting The Record Straight'.

Being written in the 1990s theoretically dates them a bit, but as you say important people now sadly deceased were interviewed. They gave first-hand accounts, which couldn't happen now.
