Dave Davies tells two different versions of this story. in one, he desecrated his Elpico speaker cone with knitting needles, while in the other, razor blades. probably tried both. I've always liked the image of him playing You Really Got Me
through an amp impaled by a pair of k-needles attached to a skein of yarn, or a partially finish tartan muffler.
anyone willing to do this let me know how it works out for you.
