The Datsuns have long hair and their new single sounds like Deep Purple fronted by Robert Plant.
The Datsuns are out to rip you off, or at least their new home of V2 Records is, giving you a whole TWO TRACKS for the price of a normal CD single. To make matters worse, one of those tracks is over two years old (your humble hack has had it on MP3 for the last nine months).
It’s kinda sad that the better of the two tracks is the older one, ‘Supergyration!’. It’s a proper rock’n’roll stomper alright, with dumb lyrics and shoutalong chorus. Just a shame that their big entrance is the rather crappy sludge of ‘In Love’.
You won’t be listening to them in 10 years time but if it’s what floats your bubble just now then wait ‘till their self titled album is out, or trawl round the net/eBay for a few of those old 7”s.
