MOJO The Collectors’ Series: MOD ICONS – THE KINKS

The follow-up issue turns the spotlight on The Who’s fellow Brit rock greats The Kinks, documenting Ray Davies and the band’s turbulent career and later solo ventures. Starting with The Kinks all but inventing heavy rock with You Really Got Me in 1964, it follows their career as they quickly evolve into “the quintessential English group” with bittersweet pop singles such as Sunny Afternoon, Dead End Street and Waterloo Sunset. The focus then switches to the group’s chequered 1970s, their glory years playing American arenas in the ’80s, and the fall-out after their 1996 split. All with lashings of sibling rivalry between Ray and Dave Davies, and oodles of added intra-band larks and strife.
