The Kinks was een Engelse rockgroep, ontstaan in 1963. De band bestond uit singer-songwriter Ray Davies, zijn broer en tevens leadgitarist Dave Davies en bassist Pete Quaife.

Begin jaren zestig besloten de twee broers een professionele band te beginnen. De broers traden al weleens op als duo. Toen Ray Davies naar de kunstacademie ging, probeerde Dave Davies samen met Quaife een band op te richten. De naam wisselde voortdurend en toen Ray Davies definitief toetrad in 1963, noemde de band zich The Ravens. De band nam Mick Avory aan als drummer. Op advies van hun manager veranderde de naam in The Kinks.



In 1970 hadden The Kinks een grote wereldhit met Lola. De band scoorde nog vier andere nummer 1-hits met de nummers

Dedicated Follower Of Fashion, Sunny Afternoon, Waterloo Sunset en Lola [Live].

Songtekst

They seek him here, they seek him there,
His clothes are loud, but never square.
It will make or break him so he's got to buy the best,
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

And when he does his little rounds,
'Round the boutiques of London Town,
Eagerly pursuing all the latest fads and trends,
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
He thinks he is a flower to be looked at
And when he pulls his frilly nylon panties right up tight
He feels a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
There's one thing that he loves and that is flattery.
One week he's in polka-dots, the next week he is in stripes.
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

They seek him here, they seek him there,
In Regent Street and Leicester Square.
Everywhere the Carnabetian army marches on,
Each one an dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
His world is built 'round discoteques and parties.
This pleasure-seeking individual always looks his best
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
He flits from shop to shop just like a butterfly.
In matters of the cloth he is as fickle as can be,
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.
He's a dedicated follower of fashion.
He's a dedicated follower of fashion.
