You've Been Asleep for a Hundred Seconds

Monday, July 10, 2006


I saw Ray Davies at the Moore tonight. I was surprisingly psyched for this show and was listening to the Kinks all day in preparation I was hoping he'd do a wide variety of Kinks stuff and only a limited about of his new album. Unfortunately He mostly did a combination of the Kinks oldies radio rotation and way way to many of his mediocre new songs. He even managed to flub "You Really Got Me" by including an accordion in the arrangement. Sorry Ray, accordions should only be included on polkas and songs from weirdos like Tom Waits and They Might Be Giants not on classic rock tunes. But Ray saved the evening from being a mild thumbs down to make it a mild thumbs up by closing with 1979's "Low Budget".
