Their records were a mixture of 60s pop rock harmonies with New Wave sounds and a punk-inspired ethos. Being a smash among power pop fans but finding mainstream popularity eluding their grasp, the band made five singles: "What I Want" / "Four Letters" (on Rhesus and Deram Records, 1979), "No Way" / "You Jane" (on Back Door and Vertigo Records, 1980), "Don't Go" / "Living Legends" (on MCA Records, 1980), "Let's Float" / "Strike Talks" (on MCA, 1981), and "Listen To Your Radio" / "Watched By Everyone" (on MCA, 1981). The guys are sometimes known by "The Donkees" and other alternate names. 3. The Donkeys were a Japanese band featuring a Noise rock and hardcore punk sound.
The Kyushu Island group had an abrasive ethos very unlike their j-rock contemporaries and created aptly titled tracks such as "Anti-war", "I'm Wanking In The City", "Fuck Your Life", and others. None of the above are to be confused with 60s rock group Keld & The Donkeys. Read more on Last.fm.
