"The Village Green Preservation Society — my band is going to play the whole album at the Meltdown festival" Ray Davies to Rolling Stones link
drownedinsound.com April 1st, 2011:

Those Sacred Days:
DiS meets The Kinks' Dave Davies

DD: "And as for the songs themselves, they’ve lasted the years fairly unscathed. It’s very human music. They still mean something. I mean, I was at Glastonbury last year when Ray was playing and people all around were in tears, me included, I’m not ashamed to say…"

DD: "Ray and I have spoken recently about doing something. But we’re not really…. (Long, Long Pause) It would be nice. I don’t know what; I think people might be surprised about what we’d have in mind. But we’ll let you know!"

to be or not to be an individual
"I think there's a danger that musical aspirations might get trapped in a bubble of mass media acceptance. It's the desire to be on TV over the fact that you want to say something and be an individual. I think if it's accepted that it's just a popular TV show ['The X Factor' in England and 'American Idol' in America] that's fine. I'd like to think that there are young musicians growing up and evolving all over the world, that they're not influenced by it and are just going to do their thing."

Ray Davies to Spinner
