The video is a hoot, but they really have absolutely no singing talent, do they?

Honor rightly should strangle anyone who brings it up.

Timeless, you might want to lock your doors in case Honor happens to wander around YouTube. Wink


Ha, ha, thanks. Very Happy Honor's not too bad, but Patrick should never be allowed near a microphone ever again. Laughing

I'm hoping the fact I didn't only use Cathy clips will protect me should Honor come around. Wink



Ahah ! Like what you said about Patrick, Timeless ! Laughing

It's a tribute, so I think you're good Timeless Wink

I've always preferred "Let's Keep it Friendly" to "Kinky Boots" as Honor and Pat just seem more at ease and like they're having more fun.

That's a great video for LKIF, Timeless A-Peel.

Thank you. Very Happy I've always like "Keep It Friendly" better, too--Honor, in particular, sounds like she's having fun with it. I love how she rolls her r's near the end.

"Let's keep friendly" is good to listen too, in both songs we've got the strange desire to sing alongside them. Laughing Smile

Have you ever got this feeling ?

It's like enjoying the good old time-or sort of.

Does anyone know if the Avenging Posse remix can be purchased as an MP3? I can't find it anywhere. Thanks

Is it true that this was the source of 'The Kinks' as a band name?

I don't recall hearing that until recently.

I came across this.

And Speaking of Kinks... The name of the famous rock band "The Kinks" actually comes from the song "Kinky Boots." In a 1995 interview with Kinks lead singer Ray Davies, he related how the band acquired its name... "Dave and Pete wore these capes and boots... Kinky Boots I think was a single that a program called The Avengers had out—a TV show. And this drunk guy at the bar looked over and said, 'You blokes should call yourselves the Kinks because you look like one.' And Larry page, who became one of our managers, said, 'He's got a point there!' " (With thanks to Fred Radnor)

However, Kinky Boots was issued on the 21st February 1964, with The Kinks first single Long Tall Sally beating it by a couple of weeks as it was released on the 7th February. In short, the evidence shows that Ray Davies' band was called The Kinks before the Kinky Boots record was issued.

Reading The Kinks Wikipedia entry it seems even the band members don't quite agree on who coined their name but there is no mention of "Kinky Boots".

The term Kinky was in common use during the sixties and its meaning softened considerably during the decade. I've no doubt, as Wikipedia states, that The Kinks chose their name to be shocking but by 1969 kids, including me, were being tempted by this...

Good question. All I can say is - not memorable!

I seem to remember it was perceived as more of a girls' ice-cream, I preferred a Zoom!

Yes there was ... and a Thunderbirds picture card carefully sealed inside the wrapper.
