Upcoming Broadcasts

A British Invasion band that was quintessentially British was an anomaly in the 1960s, but The Kinks embraced their ?Englishness?, by singing with their English accent about every day English life topics. Unlike many of their British contemporaries, The Kinks initially found commercial success with hard-driving rock numbers (such as ?You Really Got Me? and ?All Day and All of the Night?) to the point that music writers and other musicians have acknowledged the influence of the Kinks on the development of hard rock and heavy metal. Queen guitarist Brian May credited the band with planting "the seed which grew into riff-based music." The competitive, and not always harmonious nature of the Davies brothers, (Ray and Dave) created a complementary style of Dave's ?visceral and bam-from-the- gut? guitar style to Ray's ability to write lyrics with a biting social commentary filled with cynical wit and intelligent satire that went beyond the boy-girl lyrics. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005, the Timmons Brothers will reveal why the Kinks may be the epitome of a paradox for being one of the most influential rock bands ever, but also one of the most underrated bands.
