“Ray Davies is one of the underrated pioneers and best lyricists in rock. Brother Dave is an equally innovative guitarist. Rockaeology at http://bit.ly/eIMqZ7 has the story behind “You Really Got Me.” The inexpensive 6-watt Elpico amp, purchased by Dave at a radio shop for 6 pounds, was plugged into a series of other, more powerful amps. Dave sliced the speaker cone with a razor blade to achieve the distorted fuzz tone. Knitting needles were also stuck into the speakers. It was a sound unique in 1964 -- before Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page added the sound to their repertoires.”
