Dave Davies - Decade

Dave Davies - Decade - 2018
Dave Davies is famed for being one half of the warring brothers at the helm of The Kinks – and for popularising the distorted guitar sound after physically slashing his amp in the ‘60s. Though overshadowed by Ray as Kinks songwriter, Dave was responsible for a few of the North London band’s best songs, including ‘Susannah’s Still Alive’ and ‘Death Of A Clown’.

Lately, the Davies brothers have been back in the news as Ray is keen to bury the hatchet and reunite the band that, arguably, were the biggest inspiration on the ‘90s Britpop scene three decades after they formed. Dave confirms that he’d “love to play on stage with [his] brother”.

In the meantime, there’s ‘Decade’, a collection of songs and demos that Dave recorded throughout the ‘70s, a prolific period for The Kinks and one which saw the establishment of their Konk Studio.

The original recordings for ‘Decade’ were unearthed by Davies’ sons Simon and Martin from “under beds, in attics, in storage”, and have been newly mixed and mastered. Some of the musicians who contributed to tracks include longtime Kinks drummer Mick Avory, who appears on ‘If You Are Leaving’ and Dave’s nephew, Phil Palmer, a guitarist who’s worked with Dire Straits, Eric Clapton, Roger Daltrey and many others.
