That's a good collection. I used to listen to all of my parents lps from the 60s and 70s, I remember a lot of EPs too? I bought a compilation in the 80s and played it to death.

I've just been googling the kinks, I'm surprised how little chart success they had after the early 70s, I thought they were popular for longer. I was also surprised that they split up in the late 90s, I remember that come dancing song, but nothing after that.

They played my local uni - Brunel - around 1979. I remember thinking at the time it was a small venue for them. Also it was around posters for a new band, apparently called “the Stranlers” appeared, at the same venue.
I can't help getting old. I just refuse to grow up.

It seems they're putting some new tracks together in the studio which means that they won't even have to see each other or be in the same place at the same time, no talk of live gigs!

they will be shite...the kinks were/are shite....it's not about respect, it's about being honest.
I'm afraid the only shite here, is what your saying. The kinks are the second best British band after the who, to come out of the 60s. Seen them twice in 1993 in Glasgow. Superb.

Any news? Seems to have gone all quite on the Kinks front since that last announcement last year.

I saw some of their Set in March 94 @ Wembley. Each to their own but they bored me senseless live.

Original tubthumper Mick Avory predicts a getogether would be doubtful @ this point. Interview @ www.goldminemag.com, just below the Hendrix giveaway.
