Kinks-tribute band David Watts from Oslo coming to Café Radio, Skien.

On January 19, 2005 in the News & Rumors section of Dave Emlen's Unofficial Kinks Web Site: whykinks.net has photos from Ray's show in Greve, as well as photos of  Norwegian Kinks tribute band  David Watts....

 The Kinks 

Having gone from British Invasion hitmakers to late Sixties cult heroes to bonafide arena-filling rock stars in the Seventies and Eighties, the Kinks are, it would seem, cult heroes again for the time being - a position that their bright and sometimes discomfited leader no doubt savors. On the eve of their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990, Ray Davies had this to say: "The Kinks have always been outsiders. I'm an outsider. To be accepted is unique for us. I'm pleased for the people who believed in me all along. It's nice for them to know that their faith wasn't misplaced." To quote a slogan popular with those who love the band, "God Save the Kinks."

Will a concert at Rock Bottom finally  bring "David Watts" the recognition they so well deserve?
When Dave Davies released his album "Rock Bottom, Live at the Bottom Line" this was Michael R. Meyer's review:

"In his new release, 27.06.00, Dave shines as a star of the first magnitude, securing his place as the Founder and Exemplar of Hard Rock. From the first to the last tone, Rock Bottom captures all the dynamic energy, Martian edgyiness, and Uranian attitude that rock is all about. The quintessence of almost 40 years of rock, Rock Bottom is undoubtedly one of the finest live rock recording ever, and carries too many "best versions" to mention here. Will Rock Bottom finally bring Dave Davies the recognition he so well deserves?"
Coming soon:

"I am a dull and simple lad 
Can not tell water from champagne 
And I have never met the queen 
And I wish I could have all that he has got 
I wish I could be like David Watts"
"David Watts" is the opening song on "Something Else" (1967) (Here you find it all)
The Norwegian Singel

(from the cover)
In Oct 1967 on Pye, DAVID WATTS is out on a Norwegian singel, as the b-side of Autumn Almanac.
