Product description

Amazon.co.uk

Judging by the primal scream of 6Twenty, not only have New Zealand's D4 sold their souls to rock & roll, they've spent the proceeds on records by all the old favourites: Johnny Thunders, the Ramones and--but of course--the MC5. The message here seems to be simple: anything the Hives can do, we can do better--and such an attitude lays down the foundation for 12 tracks of garage-rock in excelsis. "I wanna give it to your sister and your brother like a motherfucker!" drawls frontman Jimmy Christmas, on the self-explanatory amphetamine splurge of the opening "Rock'n'Roll Motherfucker"--and from there on in, 6Twenty goes on to gleefully reinvigorate every sleazy cliché that the genre's ever kicked up. Their relative reverence for the form! even finds them dusting down a couple of covers--Johnny Thunders' "Pirate Love", and "Invader Love", a lost classic by obscure-but-excellent Japanese noiseniks Guitar Wolf. Throughout, though, D4 grip on tight to the frantic, fearless edge that elevates 6Twenty beyond mere rock parody. --Louis Pattison

BBC Review

The D4's 6Twenty is pure old-skool unadulterated rock 'n' roll. The band pay sonic homage to every one of their evident influences: The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and the funky retro-modernism of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion to name but a few.

Already signed to Flying Nun Records in their native New Zealand, they're the latest addition to Infectious Records here in the UK. Infectious released their first single, "Rock 'n' roll Motherf*cker" in March on 7" only to rave reviews, but understandably, little radio airplay. A single which,according to the band, was a statement of intent leading to an entire album of songs about parties and girls.

Hailing from North Shore, Auckland, The D4 formed a mere three years ago by guitar/vocalists Dion and Jimmy, joined last year by Vaughn on bass and most recently Beaver on drums.

A high energy powerblast through twelve rock 'n' roll tunes taken straight from the textbook of stomping guitar riffs, rasping love-lorn, partied-out vocals and over-the-counter chord progressions, theD4 have produced a feel-good clean-cut Happy Days album that's musically formulaic but hey, it works. Their second single from the album, "Party", affirms their goodtime manifesto and allegiance to the rock 'n' roll paradigm. Their back to basics sound is not what you'd call original; there's plenty of New York bands plying their trade with similartunes at the moment. However,The D4 manage to reinvigorate the genre by virtue of their passion for the music and their willingness to take the mickey out of it at the same time.

Whilst you may not find anything to move the earth here, you'll certainly be able to move your body in wanton abandonment and, sometimes, that's all you need. --Jules Willis
