Back Cover Notes:The Kinks are probably one of the most important and influential forces in Rock 'n' Roll history. What were these 'forces' behind the band? Apart from the well documented and often turbulent and sometimes destructive relationship between the Davies brothers - the creative impetus and dynamic helped shape popular music and influenced music lovers from all over the world and across generations.
Mysticism has been a powerful force in music and popular culture for centuries. This film is a personal and forthright insight into the life and beliefs of Dave Davies, founder of the legendary British group the Kinks, one of the original 'rock n roll rebels' - from childhood to today. Dave reveals the forces which have shaped him: Spirituality, the occult, psychic experiences, the influence of family, his complex relationship with brother Ray, the Kinks, his solo career, the near-fatal stroke he suffered which provided added insight into the dilemma Humankind finds itself in today. With unique archive film footage, as well as a specially composed soundtrack by Dave along with some classic songs like 'You Really Got Me', 'Strangers' and 'Living on a Thin Line'.
In this documentary Dave Davies reveals himself to be not only the driving energy behind the Kinks and a notable musical innovator of our time but also a deeply Spiritual individual who has investigated and delved into the deeper mysteries of life. Dave takes us with him on a Mystical Journey that crosses the barriers of our physical reality, time and space showing us a world of alternate consciousness and Spiritual reality. Dave approaches this immense and important subject with a sense of fun and good humour.
