6 Music Classic Concert - The Datsuns
The Datsuns recorded live 2002 at the Nottingham Boat House, are cranking up the volume on Live At Two.
Chris Hawkins introduces a set that includes Harmonic Generator, and In Love. A strangely talented foursome, they all assumed the same surname, as they saw themselves as "brothers in rock." Fronted by Dolf De Datsun, with Phil and Christian Datsun on guitars, and Matt Datsun on drums, they won their local radio station's Battle of the Bands two years in a row, prompting them to set up their own label. This enabled them to get their music to the masses - and it worked.
In 2001, deciding they should take on the world, Dolf, Phil, Christian and Matt headed to London. They were immediately elevated to God-like status by the UK music press, thanks to a support slot on tour with The White Stripes. They won NME's Best Live Act Award and signed to a major label. Their meteoric rise was complete upon release of their self-titled debut album in 2003. Here they are with a great set recorded at Nottingham's Boat Club.
