The One-up Kink: Raymond Douglas Davies

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 31 August 1968

RAYMOND DOUGLAS DAVIES, as he now insists on being referred to, is one who excels in the unexpected and the slightly bizarre. He is probably the least obvious person I know. He is a whimsical character who writes about life in an askew manner. You are never quite sure whether he is serious or not. Sometimes he will say extraordinary things like: "I always work on the assumption that I am indestructible and everyone else is not!"
