The Datsuns : Blacken My Thumb
Never mind MCA, what the sweet baby Jesus has Dolf De Datsun been up to since he stumbled into garage rock fame (ie being bothered by over-eager, cord-sporting grease gurus in dank toilets)? While his snake-hipped compatriots grind out their evil boogie, he yelps, "Once again you blacken my thumb", before concluding, "I'll make it look good/And force a smile". Umm, what's that again, Rudolf? A strange domestic violence metaphor for the price of sudden success? Been doing unmentionable things with said cord-sporting acne-heads? It seems the former is closest to the truth, though with a tune this unstoppable it could be about blindfolded DIY and we'd still howl along like aroused geese. And you know what a racket those bastards make.
