Be In the Hot Leg Battle Video!

A plea from Neil's scary godcreature, Ms Hayley Campbell:

Hello all. This may sound like an odd request, but Neil has made odder ones in the past and he seems to get away with it...

I have been asked to supply big beardy warrior types for a music video that promises to be a grand showcase of daftness - a 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' extravaganza of nuttiness! It's for Justin Hawkins of The Darkness and his new band, Hot Leg.

THE DARKNESS star JUSTIN HAWKINS found royal inspiration for his debut track - British monarch QUEEN ELIZABETH II's granddaughter was his muse.
Princess Beatrice - daughter of the Queen's son Andrew - inspired the first song Hawkins ever wrote in the late 1980s.

He says, "It was a song called Beatrice. I guess it was because I was thinking about Beatrice who had just been born at the time."

Justin Hawkins has been talking about his new band HOT LEG and how the odd constitute came about.

He said that his new band is much more “low paint” than his former outfit THE DARKNESS, who became known for Hawkin’s aureate style.
