Fantastic Cockney non-PC moment at 1.36. The Kinks just couldn't help themselves. People forget that the hunting pink uniforms lasted about 6 months. In fact they were a right bunch of uncompromisingly horrible herberts.

One of those bands where you can forget how many great songs they've done besides the obvious hits, especially when like me, you haven't listened to them for years.

Strangely they were one of the first bands I got into despite being an 80s boy, as my older brother collected 60s/70s vinyl around that time probably due to the mod revival thing in the early 80s.

I'm pretty sure I was there, too. I remember seeing Voice of the Beehive (Woody from Madness) and I don't think I would have seen them any other way. The Kinks were horrible at around that time Joe. I'm an absolute Kinks fanatic and there's at least half a dozen songs on that setlist that I'm struggling to bring to mind.

Also, Ray was in full, 'fuck playing the old hits' mode at the time. He did them, but just made it obvious they were a chore.

By then they were a band that badly needed to break up.

Took me many years to figure out that a couple of my favourite Van Halen songs were actually Kinks songs.

I saw them at ally pally about 25 years ago. Voice of the beehive was the support.

Left halfway through the kinks , thought it was boring.

RDD had huge issues with this.

For decades he was thinking, 'Look, I'm still a serious composer, THIS is what I'm doing now', but for about the past 20 years he's embraced his hits with joy.

It's probably quite normal.

Re: The Kinks...
Waterloo Sunset is a cracking song

Saw them in about 77 - the first reform, I think. They'd dropped this from their set, but the crowd kept calling for it. Eventually Ray Davies said "Look we really don't do Waterloo Sunset any more." No booing or anything, but palpable disappointment and people still calling for it. Eventually he said "OK, OK. One verse only" and jammed the whole song. It was bit ragged, but a very cool moment.

In St Albans. Seriously.

He was and did a very good job of the bathroom!

I think he ran the decorating/tiling company for many years, but has recently got back into playing and touring.

Ray Davis had a long stint with Christie Hynd and poor young Dave had an 18 month fling with Long John Baldry.

Ho ho!

He actually did that anti-Zoltaneering thing, where he didn't mention it for ages, then commented on a couple of guitars I had around the house, and then did the 'I used to be in a band' thing, to which I inevitably responded 'oh yeah, anyone I'd have heard of of' and he went 'well maybe, Herman's Hermits?'

Picked self up off floor.

I think "Ex stars with normal jobs now" would make a good thread.
