Marten and Hudson's biography explores the central paradox of The Kinks - a badly-behaved and permanently squabbling band that performed pop songs evoking a wistful and quirky view of English suburban life. From their '60s roots, when they hardly stood out from all the other Brit bands playing energetic electric versions of blues classics, The Kinks went on to create a distinctive string of atmospheric pop classics that could only have been English in provenance. The ups and downs of their tempestuous 20-year career are explored in detail and their influence upon everyone from Blur to Paul Weller is plausibly traced. As Ray Davies continues to re-interpret the band's classics alongside his solo songs, talk of a reunion continues. The Muswell Hillbillies may yet ride again, but whether they do or don't, their unique place in rock history is assured. Here is the definitive account of how The Kinks won it.
