This has been done to death I know but there is a fairly good argument for
the Kinks being the most British of all the British Invasion bands.

Though I've never been a particular fan of theirs, a lot of their music is
so "British" that it passes a lot of British people by. I know Mark Leaman
has them in high regard, and perhaps he might chuck a thought or two into
this pond.
