Punkish/popish/60's-ish band from Dallas, Texas. The only permanent members are John Dufilho (most everything), Jason Garner (bass), and Kevin Ingle (tambourine). Other members have included Matt Kellum. The band is heavily influenced by 60's British bands like The Kinks (whose frontman Ray Davies is the source of their name), The Who, and The Zombies, but also by early- and mid-90's pop-punk (i.e., pre-Blink).
