The Datsuns - The Datsuns
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Datsuns - The DatsunsWhile most of the garage-rock mania has centered on Sweden and America, this helter-skelter outfit is part of a growing contingent from Down Under. Like The Ramones, The Datsuns don’t take themselves too seriously (each member uses the bandname as his surname). And while they share the youthful charm of labelmates The White Stripes on “You Build Me Up (To Bring Me Down),” the Kiwi group leans more to AC/DC, as heard on the reckless “Fink for the Man” and expletive-filled “MF from Hell.”
