Re: Do your kids like the Kinks?

Yes, it's strange and amusing.
Last week, my son (15) came home and asked: Dad, do you know the Kinks? In January, he spontaneously bought a Led Zeppelin 'Best of' CD for my birthday. He likes the Doors, the Rolling Stones, Lou Reed. Last month he saw a fair part of the Woodstock film. Especially the mud sliding part seemed fun to him.
My daughter (13) likes Deep Purple in general, Child in time is her favorite.
They both like Carlos Santana.
Both their Beatles-period is already over...

Re: Do your kids like the Kinks?

Some nice artists listed here, I suppose it's history repeating itself.

I was bought up listening to the beatles, stones, pink floyd, jimi hendrix, the who, the kinks, the doors from my fathers collection.

Motown from my mother.

I was a lucky son, I now hold all their original pressings vinyl and I listen to them often.

I think theres some form of fasination with vinyl as in "what the hell is that" from the younger mp3 generation. I love the feel of a physical piece of music that vinyl is.

I think today there's a lack of creativity and that era 60-early 90's was a hay day in music history, the stuff being spouted out today you might find one or two interesting songs the rest is filler and crap.

It's also a history lesson, if you look at kasabian, the killers, the stone rose etc it's a linear path back to that era, so makes sense you'd want to know where the music came from and what inspired artists.

Seems suitable to post the below..enjoy (Lola-Live@ Glastonbury 2010-Woo Sunshine Year)

Ray Davies a very underrated songwriter

Re: Do your kids like the Kinks?

Last year, my seven year old was really into the Undertones and listened so much that he knew all the words to most of their songs.

Re: Do your kids like the Kinks?

Unfortunately, my 2 girls, 13 and 11, don't share my passion for Classic Punk and 80's New Wave . The oldest does put on some classical music occasionally, but normally it's Adele, Rihanna, Katy Perry etc. The younger one listens to a lot of French hip-hop, then again she dances hip-hop, so I can understand that. Sort of.

Re: Do your kids like the Kinks?

My daughter (10) came with us to see The Flaming Lips at Jodrell Bank on Saturday, it was an amazing show and I told her for a first live performance she has set a high benchmark..........she hasn't stopped listening to them since especially "Do you realise?" which was the highlight of the show. My son (16) quite likes Joy Division as well, who seem quite popular with mid teens at the moment, and that's not a bad thing!

Neither discovered the kinks yet but only a matter of time....

As far as I can recall, most of what was produced between the 60s and early 90s was filler and crap, too.

We've just learnt to block out Shaddapyaface and Lily the Pink in favour of happier memories of the good stuff that was out there...

They are fantastic. Just don't let her listen to Peaches with Flaming Lips, just yet, a little ott. I played a gig 6mo prego, it was an art to actually have my bass (docs aproved, apparently the vibrations are great stimulation) fit with a bump in a way, but we did one cover, we weren't a cover band but Yoshimi fights the pink robots in rock version was too nice not to play, and my kiddo kicked me to keep the beat ...she is musical, so there must be some truth in early exposure.

Today she is 4 and is particularly obsessed with this song, but only if we all dance and I throw her in the air and pogo all over..it's ok, but 3rd time in a row it gets a tad repetitive

Re: What are you currently listening to?

Went to see these guys on Saturday at Fribourg jazz. Dub/electronic band from London. Really energetic show, thoroughly enjoyed it. They didn't play this track, unfortunately, but it's a dub version of one of my favourite songs, sung by one of my favourite artists.

Glad you asked, The XX have completely taken over my playlist. Best debut album Ive heard in years.

Interesting because they were recommended to me by a friend and I think it is the worst engineered and produced album I have ever heard. Constantly turning the volume up/down as the balance between songs is awful.

Fair enough, but at least there was some good stuff. What do you think we will be listening to of today's stuff in 30 years? Black Eyed Peazzzzzzzzzzzzzz ?

Re: What are you currently listening to?

My parents kids like the Kinks. We are respectably 57, 54 and 47. Yes, I was the mistake.

Here's a girl power song.
