Saturday Night Kinks

Three cheers for YouTube, the people's video archive! Here's one I hadn't seen before -- of a very favorite old sing along Kinks song, Muswell Hillbillies. It's a song about the displacement of people brought about by urban planning schemes. The hillbillies referred to lived in North London. Check out the beard sprouting from the chin of Dave "Death of the Clown" Davies on lead guitar. With Mr John Gosling on organ, Mr Mick Avory on drums, Mr John Dalton on bass guitar, "and my name is Johnny Cash" Ray Davies on rhythm guitar and lead vocals.
