The Kast Off Kinks
Fri 08 Aug 2014
The Kast Off Kinks formed in 1994 to keep the music playing on, and it is what the name implies – the original line-up consisted of the band that played Lola (apart from Ray and Dave) – Avory, Dalton and Gosling – together with singer/guitarist Dave Clarke.
The current line-up is the band that played Come Dancing – Avory, Gibbons and Rodford (respectively the Kinks longest-serving drummer, keyboard player and bassist) – still with Dave Clarke covering for the Davies brothers. (As Jim is currently very busy playing with The Zombies and Argent, John Dalton often comes out of retirement to stand in for him.)
Almost every other ex-Kink has guested with The Kast Off Kinks, including Ray Davies.
