BBC News, 5 November 2008:
By Ian Youngs Music reporter, 
The Kinks start work on comeback
The Kinks have begun writing new songs ahead of a possible reunion, singer Ray Davies has said. "We've started a little bit of this and that," he told BBC News. But it is too early to judge the quality, he said. "It 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.""

"Give the people what they want"

"Which in this case is a Kinks reunion. My Globe confrere Geoff Edgers has been slaving away for some months now on a personal project, one which should warm the hearts of anyone who ever swooned to "Lola" or "Waterloo Sunset" (or, in my case, spent years searching high and low for a vinyl copy of "The Great Lost Kinks Album"). To wit: With Boston area filmmaker and all-around great dude Robert Patton-Spruill, Geoff is making a documentary about trying to coax Ray Davies and the other Kinks out of hiding and back onto the stage. Failing that, he hopes to get Ray on film. Failing that -- and Mr. Raymond Douglas Davies has long been one dyspeptic rock star when it comes to the press -- Geoff wants to talk to the many and storied musicians (Sting, Paul Weller, etc) who have been inspired by the Great Man."

Sunny Afternoon has been named the 4th most-played summer song of the past year in a new survey undertaken by PRS.

Kinks’ Ray Davies, as narrator Terry, will lead the 13-strong cast of his self-penned musical Come Dancing, which runs from September 24 (previews from September 13) to October 25, 2008, at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

Come Dancing is loosely based on Davies’ own childhood when he watched his sisters go out with their latest boyfriends to dances on a Saturday night.

The cast will also include Alasdair Harvey, Anthony Flaum, Bradley Clarkson, Delroy Atkinson, Gemma Salter, Katey Munroe, Katherine James, Marcus Ellard, Martin George, Samantha Hughes, Stephen Lloyd and Wendy Mae Brown."

The Kinks: Demon Alcohol by Dinky Dawson
Ker-Splash! A tremendous geyser suddenly exploded skyward in the center of the pool. I looked down into the water to see a television set swiftly heading for the bottom like the doomed Titanic. My eyes shot up the wall of hotel rooms until I spotted Ray Davies and his guitar-playing brother Dave roaring with laughter in front of several inebriated and astonished guests on their small second-floor balcony."

"to make something like a Kinks album."
"In an interview at the time of the release of their fourth studio album, Setting Sons, Weller said that they entered the studio specifically setting out to make something like a Kinks album"
