Alien Weaponry... imagine getting a bunch of Germans and Slovenians to sing along in Te Reo. World's coolest kids in my opinion.

Funny thread. Would make more sense to compare The Datsuns to The D4 or another band like that.

From what I've listened to The Datsuns are waaay more leaning towards classic blues rock, hard rock and garage rock whereas The Cavemen do scruffier garage punk/rock 'n' roll, but I haven't seen or heard them much since they left NZ. They were fun live and sometimes hilariously loose when they were playing here, but it started to get a bit old cause it was kinda the same thing every show. The whole loose rock n roll thing started to get pretty silly too when the singer was huffing paint or glue onstage etc. I know they're young, but y'know. Watching teenagers do retarded shit in front of an audience like that can get a bit weird and depressing. I missed seeing them play in Amsterdam cause I was super jet-lagged and kept falling back asleep when it was time to go out.

The Datsuns are a way better band, but they've been around a whole lot longer and they seem to aim for a totally different style. Solid as fuck albums and an awesome live show. They're kinda like NZ's answer to The Hellacopters. I liked them when I was in high school and finally got to see them live about 10 years ago at a free concert at a park near my flat in Kingsland and they did not disappoint. That band fuckin rules.

So monotonous. I guess it's that thing where a band's songs all sound the same and either you like the song or you don't. If forced I'd pick The Cavemen as The Datsuns were already overplayed and bored me when I saw them in 2004.
