Datsuns apply the brakes

The Datsuns made their debut appearance at Ozzfest in July – looking, in their words, like a group of “Nancy-boys” amidst a sea of metal. Rolling Stone had a more favourable outlook, describing the band as “an MC5-meets-ACDC in-tight-white-jeans” type of outfit. The Datsuns are currently working on their second album, which, according to singer Dolf, will showcase a diversification of their trademark full-throttle sound. “We know we have an audience now – we can be slightly more self-indulgent, and do things that maybe will work better on record than live … like slow songs.”
