Contributor’s Note: Mark Dean(Antihero Magazine, The Spill Magazine, Madness To Creation) sat down with Dolf de Dorst of The Datsuns to discuss their latest album entitled “Eye To Eye.” “Eye To Eye” was released on May 28th to critical acclaim, and the band has drawn comparisons to “if Alice Cooper, Marc Bolan and Deep Purple conducted a mad scientist experiment, you would get The Datsuns.” Well, that’s what we said about them anyways. The Datsuns have performed at the Pinkpop Festival back in 2004 and also performed their hit “In Love” on the Late Show with Conan O’Brien back in the day. Their also known for their romantic classic “Motherfucker From Hell.” Fans can find The Datsuns on Facebook, their official website and Bandcamp.
