Review

The man who forever changed the sound of rock n roll when he invented distortion presents this brand new solo album of all original material!

Featuring guest appearances by The Jayhawks, Anti-Flag, award winning UK blues guitarist Oli Brown, Chris Spedding, US stoner rock band Dead Meadow, Aussie rockers The Art, and others!

A special engagement of 3 live performances are scheduled for the end of May!

Will be heavily promoted through Glass Onyon PR as well as digital ad campaigns, consumer print ads and more!

Dave Davies founded the Kinks in the early 1960s and forever changed music after he sliced up the speaker cone of a little green amp and created a revolutionary, distorted guitar tone and frenetic solo on song You Really Got Me. Musicologist Joe Harrington described the Kinks influence: You Really Got Me, All Day and All of the Night ... were predecessors of the whole three-chord genre ... The Kinks did a lot to help turn rock n roll into rock. In 1998, writer Bill Crowley wrote, As lead guitarist and founder of The Kinks, Dave Davies is one of the most unpredictable and original forces in rock, without whom guitar-rock styles including heavy metal and punk would have been inconceivable. A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Dave's massive guitar sounds have inspired bands from Van Halen to Green Day."

Dave's new album I Will Be Me is a return to his groundbreaking guitar sound and innovative songwriting. His classically English voice shows off a new deepness but still hits his famous high notes in this collection. The hard rocking track Livin in the Past, takes a look at obsession with all things retro but, ever the Mod, Dave surprises with the lyric, no matter what they do or say, the future s here to stay! He takes a look back with Little Green Amp, a playful, punk homage to days when his jagged, blues driven sound wave ripped ahead of the British Invasion through stereos the world over. Cote du Rhone (I Will Be Me), an uncensored look at ugliness in the world today, is as angry and biting as ever with an innovative heavy yet slide guitar tone. Soothing lyrics and sounds of Jonathan Lea s sitar playing on Healing Boy show Dave s sensitive side. In a recent radio interview he said, rock music is a positive force for good. This hopeful and optimistic vision manifests and bridges themes personal, social and universal in I Will Be Me.

Since the early days, Dave has worked on a slew of critically acclaimed records, ranging from solo hit single Death of a Clown, to experimental Kinks records like Village Green Preservation Society and Arthur as well as the classic Lola in the 70s. In the 80s Dave released experimentally prescient solo work like the eponymous album titled Dave Davies or AFL1-3603 named after himself and/or the barcode symbol face cover art. His mainstream success continued in the 80s on hit Kinks albums Low Budget and State of Confusion. In the 90s he released more solo work such as Bug and the compilation Unfinished Business. His songs have been featured in films by John Carpenter and on TV shows like the Sopranos, which used his tune Living on a Thin Line. His tell-all autobiographical book Kink was well received in the late 90s as well. In recent years, Dave has collaborated creatively with his sons. In 2010 he worked with son Russell Davies to create the hauntingly, beautiful rock electronica album, the Aschere Project. The film Mystical Journey, directed by son Martin Davies, narrates Dave's longtime interest in the paranormal, Eastern philosophies and spirituality (the film inspired Julien Temple s BBC documentary Kinkdom Kome). No matter how diverse the ambition, Dave Davies puts his heart and soul in all of his projects. --Official Press Release

The WBAI scheduled a few weeks ago happened last night. For anyone who missed it, it's already archived.

Find Morning Dew from March 17, 2013 and click Play.

The brand new song from I Will Be Me - "Living In The Past" - starts at 1:06:45.

Warning......the sound quality of the whole interview is awful/static-ky.
