The Kinks (1963–1996; 2018-present) are an English pop-rock group that came out of the British R&B scene of the early 1960s. Formed in Muswell Hill, North London, by brothers Ray Davies and Dave Davies in 1964 and categorised in the United States as a "British Invasion" band, the Kinks are recognised as one of the most important and influential rock groups of the era. In 1990, their first year of eligibility, the original four members were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Read more on Last.fm

Walter White may not be real, but according to Ray Davies his ‘Walter’ did exist..
“Walter existed. He’s drawn from about two or three people I had in mind. They were friends I knew. When I was an art student I did a lot of caricatures of people, what I refer to as documentary art. I think that experience helped me see characters, to try to get the character across in the song.” - Extract from the VG50 box set, out now.
Video: Fan upload of The Kinks - ‘Do You Remember Walter’ set to footage from TV series ‘The Breaking Bad’.

Brilliant Sold out event last night at Rough Trade East!
Journalist Will Hodgkinson conversed with The Kinks' Dave Davies - all about Village Green, its 50th anniversary and how it’s stood the test of time.
Dave then kindly stuck around to sign copies for everyone who attended.

“I think the art department at Pye came up with a few ideas. I wanted a plain picture but marketing people wanted to put us in the psychedelic era. According to the art department the sleeve was psychedelic. We went with it, it looked like a sunrise or a sunset. It was one of the most-well remembered, beautifully memorable photo sessions we ever did. To me it’s The Kinks as they truly should be portrayed. What we’re wearing says so much about us as people, we’re comfortable together. We’re not wearing band suits but we look comfortable as a team. It’s more to do with what’s in our heads – not what’s on our backs.” - Ray Davies (about the VGPS album cover).
