Avory was hired by the Kinks (who had just changed their name at that time from the Ravens) in January 1964, after their managment saw an advertisement he had placed in the trade magazine Melody Maker.

Avory was with the Kinks for about twenty years and he performed on nearly all of the band's material.

 Ravens - Music Downloads - Online
Bio: Just prior to changing their name to the Kinks, the Kinks were known as the Ravens, a group which got as far as recording some demos in late 1963.
The Ravens merit an entry of their own in a discographical database because some of their tracks have surfaced on disc.
As the competent cover of "I'm a Hog for You, Baby" and the Merseybeatish "I Believed You" were previously written about as having been recorded in late-'63, the versions here are presumably from that Ravens demo.

 The Kinks, MP3 Music Download at eMusic   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Before signing to the label, the Ravens replaced drummer Willet with Mick Avory.
State of Confusion followed the release of "Come Dancing," and it was another success, peaking at number 12 in the U.S. For the remainder of 1983, Ray Davies worked on a film project, Return to Waterloo, which caused considerable tension between himself and his brother.
Instead of breaking up, the Kinks merely reshuffled their lineup, but there was a major casualty: Mick Avory, the band's drummer for 20 years, was fired and replaced by Bob Henrit.

 ROBERT HENRIT
Bob Henrit quietly replaced the long-serving Mick Avory in July 1984 after Avory's retirement from the active band.
Henrit had been on the British music scene for many years, enjoying initial success as one of the Roulettes (1962-1967), who, in addition to a recording career of their own, backed the popular singer Adam Faith on tour and on record.
Bob Henrit was the obvious choice to replace Mick Avory, both because he and Jim Rodford had already proven to be a capable and compatible rhythm section and because of his previous ties with Dave Davies and other peripheral musicians who have augmented the Kinks over the years.

The Kinks: Dave Davies (vocals, guitar); Ray Davies (vocals); Peter Quaife (bass); Mick Avory (drums).
The album that ushered in a new era of Ray Davies' songwriting, 1966's FACE TO FACE finds Davies penning, for the first time, a series of vignettes in the style that would become a staple for the rest of his career.
Musically, some serious thought is apparent in the arrangements of songs such as "Too Much on My Mind," and much of the album is conclusive evidence that the rest of the Kinks, in particular guitarist Dave Davies and drummer Mick Avory, were the perfect foil for Davies' songwriting skills.

Jagger's vocals are buried in the mix, and the music is a series of dark, dense jams, with Keith Richards and Mick Taylor spinning off incredible riffs and solos.
And the songs continue the breakthroughs of their three previous albums.
Few other albums, let alone double albums, have been so rich and masterful as Exile on Main St., and it stands not only as one of the Stones' best records, but sets a remarkably high standard for all of hard rock.
