Good call. I haven't thought about them for years. Thanks for the reminder.
Oh and as for the Kinks, guess maybe it's the company I keep or something but I was under the impression most people have a great opinion of them. My stepson and his bandmates seem to really think the Kinks were pretty great. The kid asked to borrow my Kinks and Clash CDs and it made my maternal heart quite proud.
