Band Of The Week - The Kinks

Sorry for lack of update about Band Of The Week in this few weeks due to my lousy internet service. This weekend my band of the week is The Kinks.

The Kinks

Let's start up with some of my song selection from The Kinks. First will be my favorite, You Really Got Me. I think most of you heard of this song before. Next will be Waterloo Sunset, a very relaxing song. Follow by Lola, quite funny tune to me. Finally will be Victoria, a quite famous tune too.

About The Kinks

The Kinks were an English rock group formed in 1963 by lead singer-songwriter Ray Davies and his brother, lead guitarist and vocalist, Dave Davies. The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for Rock & Roll.

In the United States, The Kinks are categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, the band is frequently cited as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time.

In the autumn of 2005, The Kinks were inducted into the "UK Music Hall of Fame", where all of the original band members were present again (indeed, they are now the only major British Invasion band whose original members are all still alive). The award was given by long-time Kinks fan and friend of Ray, The Who's guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend, who expressed his wishes to see The Kinks reunited in 2006.

The Kinks in live

According to Ray Davies in an interview for Rolling Stone that the band may reform for another album. According to him, he recently got together with former bandmates, including Dave, to discuss potential future plans.
