Hot Leg, and The Crave take to the road

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Former Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins' new band Hot Leg, and Brighton based quartet The Crave, have announced a string of tour dates over the next few weeks.

The Lowestoft-born Hawkins shot to the heights of fame with The Darkness and fell from grace when the rock group split. Now he's back for another taste of stardom with his new band. They have released their debut album, 'Red Light Fever' on their own label, Barbeque Rock and with bandmates guitarist Pete Rinaldi, bassist Samuel Stokes and drummer Darby Todd, they're ready to hit the road.

Justin Hawkins: my week

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Justin Hawkins, former frontman with the Darkness, now with Hot Leg describes his week.


I went to pick up a picture of me riding a horse that I have just had framed. On the way back, some kids threw sludgy snowballs at me. Later on, Pete Rinaldi, the guitarist in Hot Leg, came over to my house in north-west London and we started work on the band's third album. Even though our first album has just come out, we've already written the second one we just had too many songs. The third one is going to be a concept album, probably a three-hour epic rock opera, but at the moment we've just got the opening riff, which sounds like Guns N' Roses.

Album Review: Hot Leg - Red Light Fever

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Being a Darkness fan I’ve been really looking forward to getting my mitts on Hot Leg’s debut album and once again, Justin Hawkins has got me jumping around to big, camp rock like there’s no tomorrow. Red Light Fever is a hot album and anyone expecting a toned down version of The Darkness after rehab’s affect on Justin, then think again.
