Win God Save the Kinks: A Biography by Rob Jovanovich

God Save the Kinks: A Biography by Rob Jovanovich
God Save the Kinks: A Biography by Rob Jovanovich

Win a copy of God Save the Kinks

In August 1964 The Kinks released their third single. It was to be their salvation. After a little noticed debut and a follow-up that had failed to chart at all, Pye Records were threatening to annul the group’s contract, but then ‘You Really Got Me’, with its unmistakable distorted guitar riff, went on to reach No. 1, entering the US Top Ten later the same year. Followed by a string of hits, it marked the breakthrough of one of Britain’s most innovative and influential bands, and a turning point in the fortunes of two brothers whose troubled story is as tumultuous and characterful as the songs they produced: Ray Davies & Dave Davies.

In this definitive chronicle of The Kinks’ career, music biographer Rob Jovanovic has drawn on new interviews with former band members and collaborators, including drummer Mick Avory, producer Shel Talmy, bassist John Dalton and keyboardist John Gosling, to explore a remarkable, yet often neglected, chapter of Britain’s rock and roll heritage.

God Save The Kinks: A Biography is a tale of sibling rivalry, walkouts, a career-throttling ban from America, and the band’s curious rebirth as Eighties stadium rockers, God Save The Kinks lays bare one of the greatest acts in British pop history.
