"Sunny Afternoon" tells the story of how Ray Davies and The Kinks became one of Britain's best-loved bands.
Set against the back-drop of Britain in the Swinging Sixties, and revolving around the relationship of battling brothers Ray and Dave Davies, the musical tells the story of the band's meteoric rise and agonising lows -- including how they managed to get themselves banned from America.
If you've never been out and bought yourself a Kinks album then maybe this is the time to do it. We could sit here and argue all day about who is the best British band, but if you take The Beatles and the Stones out of the equation then you've only really got two left: The Who and The Kinks. That is how good The Kinks are.
