The Datsuns: the future of rock’n’roll?
dotmusic revs up Kiwi rockers The Datsuns. “four stick-thin, long-haired, fresh-faced, sinful-souled boys from Cambridge, New Zealand, and the latest genius rock’n’roll band to swarm on London”. Accompanied by the same feeding frenzy that welcomed The Strokes, The White Stripes and The Hives, “the Datsuns are a tremendous night out: a heavy metal band for people who didn’t think they liked heavy metal any more.” The Datsuns were recently signed by Branson’s V2 label and recently appeared on John Peel’s legendary Radio 1 show. “There was so much testosterone flying about that stage, if they’d played one more song, I think I would have fallen pregnant just watching them.”
