Kinks were an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill. North London, in 1964 by brothers Ray and Dave Davies. They are regarded as one of the most important and influential rock bands of the era. The band emerged during the height of British rhythm and blues and Merseybeat and were briefly part of the British Invasion of the US until their touring ban in 1965. Their third single, the Ray Davies-penned “You Really Got Me”, became an international hit. Topping the charts in the United Kingdom and reaching the Top 10 in the United States. Between the mid-1960s and early 1970s, the group released a string of hit singles; studio albums drew good reviews but sold less than compilations of their singles. Their music was influenced by a wide range of genres, including rhythm and blues, British music hall, folk and country.

They gained a reputation for reflecting English culture and lifestyle, fuelled by Ray Davies’ observational writing style. Albums such as Something Else (1967), The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society (1968), Arthur (1969), Lola Versus Powerman (1970), along with their accompanying singles, are considered among the most influential recordings of the period.
