Ray Davies: A Dedicated Chronicler of Fashions
Jon Savage, Observer, The, 28 November 2010
IN LATE 1965, Ray Davies threw a party. One of his guests was a clothes designer, and as Davies recalled: "I got pissed off with him always going on about fashion. I had a fight with him, a terrible brawl and I kicked him. It was awful. There was blood. The next day I said, 'Forget this, this has got to stop, take it out in your work' and I wrote that song, typed it up straight off."
