“Whenever people ask me if I prefer The Beatles or The Rolling Stones (which they never do), I always say The Kinks (in my mind).”

Head over to Aquarium Drunkard to check out James Elkington’s take on three Kinks tunes: “This Man He Weeps Tonight”, “Too Much On My Mind”, and “Get Back In Line.” You can listen to the songs and read James’ thoughts on each here.

James will be hitting the road this fall with Joan Shelley in support of his recently released Wintres Woma.  You can catch him then, or in the coming week with Steve Gunn and Heron Oblivion.

 

Buy Wintres Woma here:
