Dave Davies.

Great guitar player and writer of some great Kinks songs, skills unfortunately overshadowed by his brother's immense talent.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Totally. He suffers from the "Colin Moulding" syndrome.

Sounds painful.

You gotta love Mr Moulding though, I nearly cried when I first heard "Frivolous Tonight", it's just such a lovely, warm song.

Oh, I love Colin Moulding. He's good for at least one stone classic and a couple more really good ones an album. But Partridge tends to get noticed more. I guess "eccentric, but inconsistent genius" beats out "consistently above average songwriter."

This post was made by a false Kaleb, an imposter who has been killed, like a dog.
