The Aussie newcomers have no time for Hawkins men

Australian newcomers Wolfmother have attacked The Darkness for making rock a laughing stock.

The Sydney three-piece, who have impressed with their gonzo rock riffs, believe their British rivals are not a true rock band, but a comedy act.

Richie Edwards

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

As he neared 30, Richie Edwards—career roadie, guitar tech, and all-around backline guru—had given up all hope of making any impact in a band of his own. While making a living tweaking the EQ for Darkness guitarist Dan Hawkins, Edwards’s only onstage action came with Onion Trump, a roadies’ joke band that would sometimes support the hair-rock stars. But nine months ago, that all changed when Darkness bassist Frankie Poullain was dismissed and Edwards was asked to step up to the plate. Now on a major European tour, he’s still marveling at the sudden change in his fortunes.

The showman must go on

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

The punters won't pay $30 for a CD any more, but they'll fork out hundreds for a concert ticket if the band gives them a crazy live show. Luckily, Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins is happy to oblige. Guy Blackman reports.

The first decade of the 21st century has been a rough one for aspiring rock gods. Falling CD sales, rampant digital piracy, fickle market trends and growing record label conservatism mean these days even if you manage to get a record deal, your chances of a continuing and productive career are incredibly slim.
