Corgan remakes Kinks’ “Destroyer” with Ray Davies 3:57 pm // Wednesday, August 25, 2010

For a forthcoming album on which he re-records many of his great Kinks hits, Ray Davies has worked with Bruce Springsteen, Black Francis, Bon Jovi, Spoon, Alex Chilton, and others.  A blog post written by Kerry Brown last night suggests that Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan is also taking part:

Billy was in this week to record a track for Ray Davies the two of them are collaborating on a remake of Destroyer: Mr. Mark Tulin from The Electric Prunes played bass and Kevin Dippold engineered the track.

“Destroyer” — itself a bit of a remake, as it incorporates the riff from the Kinks’ “All Day and All of the Night,” which Zwan covered several times on its April 2002 tour of the Midwest — was a U.S. hit for the Kinks in 1981.

ever since Ray announced he wanted to do this project, I was hoping Billy would get involved with it. It also seemed like a slight when Billy wasn’t announced originally as being a part of this (almost like everyone forgot about him and in a way, I guess they did as Billy said in that facebook interview, that the phone’s been ringing off the hook since this last tour started). Too bad the song isn’t Waterloo Sunset…
