Turned back on to Britpop's origins

No offense meant to Damon and the lads, but whenever I listen to BLUR for an extended period of time, I always follow up by listening to THE KINKS.
Blur's Britpop "Englishness" and even hints of music hall style suggest a debt to the Kinks that Damon Albarn readily admitted.
With cricket on the radio and cooler temperatures marking our late summer, these days seem perfectly suited to renew my own loving acquaintance with The Kinks.
I'm listening to a playlist of their wonderful 45s today -- inspired by a bit of Blur to return to the origins of Britpop.
