Kinky pub set for the wrecking ball

Former Kinks Ray and Dave Davies have expressed outrage over plans to demolish the site of the band’s first ever gig back in 1963. The Clissold Arms in East Finchley is set to be demolished, and its collection of Kinks memorabilia auctioned off to make way for a restaurant.

We are inclined to agree with Dave Davies, who asks: “Why on earth can’t they have their posh gastro grub and still keep a part of it for tourists, Kinks fans and the curious?” An online petition relating to the preservation of the pub’s memorabilia can be signed here
