Mick Avory's Underpants

Album: The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society (2004)


  • This boogie-ing outake was included on the 2004 Sanctuary Records special deluxe edition of The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society plus the 2018 50th anniversary reissue of the album.
  • The instrumental is titled after the underwear of the Kinks drummer, Mick Avory.

    "I'm glad that's an instrumental," Avory told Rolling Stone. "God knows what the words would have been. I used to take my trousers off when I got drunk and I used to have these horrible underpants with either skull-and-crossbones on them or some inscription. Everyone knew I had silly underpants."
