New Zealand does not have a rich rock 'n roll heritage. There's Crowded House, not renowned for burning down Babylon, and... well that's about it. Enter then Dion and Jimmy, the core of The D4. They play mean garage punk rock with nods towards Motorhead and AC/DC and a pinch of Jon Spencer.

This should be single of the week not just because the title contains all the words you ever really need, but because The D4 have a drummer called Beaver.
