Killers Clipped From Kinks Tribute, Spoon, Black Francis, and Billy Corgan In Like Flynn

    Ray Davies intrigued the music world when he happened to mention that he had put in some recording time with Bruce Springsteen, Lucinda Williams, and Alex Chilton for an album of reworked Kinks numbers. The excitement for the album kicked up another notch when it was recently revealed that Davies has hit the studio with the likes of Black Francis, Spoon and Billy Corgan. The unfortunate loser in the deal appears to be The Killers, whose previously announced track will not be on the album. [TwentyFourBit]
