My brother and I are playing an acoustic ALL-KINKS show this weekend to test the waters on an all-Kinks band. (No joke, it’s at LOLA Art Gallery!) Acoustik Kinks will just be acoustic guitar and vocals with a focus on the Face To Face through Lola era.
I plan to record the show and post on YouTube if it goes well. We already have a few drummers interested. Now will there be an audience for this (see my very short-lived Hendrix/SRV cover group)…who knows???
You are the crew that came up with (and most likley put the nail in the coffin of) Electric Stevieland, my Hendrix/SRV Tribute band in 2008 that played one great show and then forgot to book a second one…ever.
I had forgotten that there was a website for this band until I just “Bing-ed” myself (I need to reset my work computer back to Google): http://stevierayhendrix.wordpress.com/music/
My favorite Kinks name so far is Art Lovers, but nobody will every know that we are a Kinks group with that name (and if they know the song they may keep their kids away).
I’d also like to find a name that is not being used already. Dave Davies‘ band is Kink’s Kronicles, there is a Kinda Kinks (and a Kinda Kinda Kinks) and a Kinky 2, etc.
There was a band called The Dedicated Followers, but they have been gone for a while, so that may be an option.
