Sound stunts

Cambridge-formed rockers The Datsuns have released their fourth album ‘Head Stunts’, an anagram of the group’s name, in the United States where they are currently on tour. Writer Hannah John wrote at the online magazine Bearded: “One of The Datsuns’ strengths has always been their ability to harness aspects of vintage ’60s and ’70s rock and wrap them around their frenzied party-time head-pummellers, and this is even more evident on this record. ‘Eye of the Needle’ takes a relentless bass drone and ’60s style guitar twiddles, ‘Highschool Hoodlums’ is straight out of the T-Rex songbook, while swirling Hammond punches dominate the insanely catchy ‘Cruel Cruel Fate.'” SoundProof, an online magazine, compares it to the sounds of the White Stripes and others. Overall, the straightforward rockers deliver best, and prove that the band once heralded as the ‘future of rock’ is not yet past its prime. Play it loud!”
