"I wanted to get in touch with my songs again"

-Ray Davies, on performing stripped-down versions of Kinks tunes on his latest tour.

"The Kink’s English"

A Kinky Conversation betwixt Ray Davies and Weekender editor Michael Lello.

Ray recently completed his chorale album and tour, is in the midst of a stripped down solo tour, and is working on a new collaboration album of Kinks classics with special guests (a long list of established and new artists from both sides of the Atlantic).
Still, Kinks fans long for the band to reunite. Ray says he is open for a Kinks reunion, but says it’s up to his brother Dave Davies.

Dave has replied,
"If Ray replies to my emails and addresses the outstanding business and creative issues we have then anything is possible- it is very much up to Ray -
The old tapes are out takes of earlier Kinks albums-RD is thinking of repackaging- and recently he rarely consults me on these issues also – There are NO new recordings of Kinks material-

Dave Davies – The Kinks"

Personally, I don't see a reunion happening anytime soon.
