Davies confirms Kinks reunion is on

by Modculture 6 November, 2008

Ray Davies had spoken earlier this year of his desire to reform 60s beat icons The Kinks. This week he confirmed the group are together and writing new songs.

Speaking to BBC News, he stated “We’ve started a little bit of this and that…[the full reunion] depends if there’s good music. We want good new music. I’d like to do it as a more collaborative thing than we used to do”.

Any reunion was dependent upon the health of Dave Davies, who has been recovering from a stroke in 2004. Dave is now well enough to participate, he said.

Meanwhile Ray Davies has a solo US tour to undertake, and a further album of collaborations on the horizon. He is aiming to duet with a range of artists, including Razorlight’s Johnny Borrell, Snow Patrol, and even Chuck Berry.

The Kinks last performed together in 1996. When any groups gigs are announced Modculture will be first to let you know.
