Fan Club Meeting, 22 November 2015

The 2014 meeting at the Boston Arms Music Room was once again a great success. The stage in the Music Room has now been altered /extended to improve band facility, and as such the room is subject to a lower audience capacity, which will be strictly enforced.

For 2015, we are moving to the larger room upstairs at The Boston, which for everybody’s comfort has a full concert room stage, a new sound system, but still retains the bar in the room, so hopefully we will not lose that special atmosphere we have experienced downstairs over the last twelve years.

We will have to work and adhere to the licensing laws on the venue, which means age restrictions for under fourteens (no admission), and sixteen or under must be accompanied by an adult. Also we do need to have the necessary staff/security to meet H & S and licence requirements. Our audience are not usually any problem, as we pretty well know everyone attending, be even so, we had to have one unreasonable (drunk) fan escorted off the premises last November! More table seating will be available on request, although we do not want to turn it into a “sit down gig”.

Ray Davies did attend again, but on condition that we were able to get him in and out with no hassle, the problem is that Ray is perfectly happy to sign autographs, but some fans can’t leave it at that, and want to be “stuck in his face” exchanging life stories, or book projects! Ray comes along to enjoy the event, talk with the band members and to some extent be a fan of the music, which may seem strange but that’s the way it is.

Having said all that, booking is now open-

Muswell Hillbillies Deluxe Edition

MHB_DeluxeMuswell Hillbillies is now being released as a special 2CD special edition featuring 5 previously unreleased tracks, including ‘Lavender Lane’ and early demo ‘Nobody’s Fool’, as well as alternative song versions and tracks taken from John Peel BBC radio sessions.

Originally released in November 1971, this classic Kinks album was the follow-up to the seminal ‘Lola vs Powerman’ album and the first with their new label RCA. The album was named after the Muswell Hill area of North London, where band leader Ray Davies and guitarist Dave Davies grew up and the band formed in the early 1960s. The album centres around themes of poverty and working-class life,  with a blend of American and British roots music veering effortlessly from rowdy blues and boozy vaudeville to the country sound of its title track and music-hall fuelled ‘Alcohol’.

Muswell Hillbillies is a great album, and ranks up amongst The Kinks’ best.

God Save The Kinks

A Biography

God-Save-the-KinksIn this definitive chronicle of The Kinks’ career, acclaimed music biographer Rob Jovanovic has drawn on new interviews with former band members and collaborators, including drummer Mick Avory, producer Shel Talmy, bassist John Dalton and keyboardist John Gosling, to explore a remarkable, yet often neglected, chapter of Britain’s rock and roll heritage.

A tale of sibling rivalry, walkouts, a career-throttling ban from America, and the band’s curious rebirth as Eighties stadium rockers, God Save The Kinks lays bare one of the greatest acts in British pop history.
