Watch Dave Davies’ New Video for ‘Web of Time’
Kinks guitarist Dave Davies released a video for his reflective song “Web of Time,” which appears on his recent album Decade, a collection of previously unreleased tracks he wrote and recorded in the ‘70s.
The material was shelved as he decided to take his career in a different direction, but was recently assembled and modernized by his sons Simon and Martin Davies.
“'Web of Time' is a previously unreleased song I wrote and recorded in the mid-1970s, which has been embellished for the Decade album," Davies said in a statement. "It's about my feelings and reflections about where we stand as people and what we are doing to each other, why we do the things we do. Questioning life – is it just chaos or is there more to it? I think it's poignant for these times."

“It’s interesting to tune into the mindset of all that time ago, but there’s certain things that never really change," Davies said in a recent interview with UCR. "Certain views that I had of the world, I still hold. But points of view change over the years, and they should do, I think.”
He added that the biggest lesson he’d learned from working on Decade was “never throw anything away." "It's so amazing," he added. "You write a little passage and you go, ‘No, it’s crap,’ but you keep it, then you write something else a couple of years later and go, ‘Hang on, that’ll fit with so-and-so.’ You shouldn’t throw anything away. Especially ideas. Maybe some food that’s gone by its sell-by date – throw that away!"
Davies will tour the U.S. in April next year. You can see details at his website.
