Ray Davies Ready Steady Go To Curate Music Festival
According to The Guardian, Davies said, "When The Kinks performed 'You Really Got Me' on there live, it put the record to #1. There's something missing from our culture now, that kind of show. Yes, we have The X Factor, but Ready Steady Go! allowed the performers to be themselves; they weren't manufactured."
Davies also plans to assemble a diverse lineup of guests for the 2011 Meltdown, including the Fugs, Nick Lowe, Madness, Lydia Lunch, Yo La Tengo, Arthur Brown, the Legendary Pink Dots and the Alan Price Set. Davies himself will play with his new band and with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. more on this story
