The so-called ”godfather of Britpop” says the boys are going back in the studio to record a new album – more than 20 years after The Kinks ”parted company.”
Ray Davies, the 74-year-old frontman of the popular group formed in 1963, says the album will feature two of the other founding members – brother Dave and Mick Avory.
Bassist Pete Quaife died in 2010.
”We’ve been talking about it because I’ve got all these songs that I wrote, then the band — not broke up, we parted company — and I think it’s kind of an appropriate time to do it,” said Davies.
Inspired by the Rolling Stones, he says a Kinks reunion ”won’t be well-organized like the Stones,” adding The Kinks will ”probably play in the local bar.”
The Davies brothers last performed together in 1996.
Regarded as one of the most influential and important bands of the 60s, The Kinks continued touring into the 80s and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
Hits included ”You Really Got Me,” ”All Day and All of the Night,” ” A Well-Respected Man,” ”Waterloo Sunset,” ”Lola”.
