"Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers."
Who knows where they are from? What they look like is a tough teenage band, who maybe double as a car club on nights when they can't get dates. No part is particularly special -- songs, singing, playing are all kind of primordial L.S. rock, like Love or the Seeds. But it's such a Sixties throwback, you can't help but fall in love.
