INTERVIEW: The Datsuns Guitarist Phil Somervell

From Music 101, 1:15 pm on 5 June 2021

The Datsuns Guitarist Phil Somervell talks to Trevor Reekie about The Datsuns' early days learning to play in Cambridge, being championed by the late English DJ John Peel, scoring the cover to NME, recording with Led Zep bassist John Paul Jones and relentlessly touring.

He opens up about spending an inordinate amount of time sitting in vans, trains, and planes to take their music to wildly diverse audiences around the globe. 

It’s a history spanning 20 years that reinforces the belief that although serendipity has sometimes worked in The Datsuns favour, they’ve always been well ready for it.
