Return of The Darkness

+ posted by FlamingWhopper



The eagle-eyed among you might have noticed that a mysterious third act has been added to the bill for the first few shows of the upcoming Thin Lizzy/Queensryche tour.

The dates at Leicester De Montfort Hall (November 22), Cambridge Corn Exchange (23) and Ipswich Regent (24) will feature an opening band called Stone Gods.

Classic Rock understands that Stone Gods are in fact The Darkness minus Justin Hawkins, and with the new line-up of Richie Edwards (vocals/guitar), Dan Hawkins (guitar), Toby MacFarlaine (bass) and Ed Graham (drums).

We await confirmation, as no official announcement has been made. But if we're right - remember where you read it first.

In the meantime, we suppose we'd better start thinking about booking our one-way ticket to Leicester (or Cambridge… or Ipswich…) and back.

Note from Webmistress: As far as I know, this is not confirmed :)

The Darkness & Queen

Pan pipes investigate a distant landscape which is conjured up by the mood in the intro to The Darkness's title track "One Way Ticket." Almost immediately the mood is shattered, like a mirror, when the sound of a snorting nostril rings though as the underlying theme. Then at long last the more culturally familiar sound of grunting, leopard-like, trash-rock power chords blows up in your face like the glamorous powder of stardust.

Museum aims to attract children

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

CHILDREN looking for fun activities during the half-term holidays are today being encouraged to visit Ipswich Museum.

The museum has decided to celebrate 'The Big Draw' by hosting free art events for children during their week off school from Tuesday October 23 to Saturday October 27. [...]

Two of the famous portraits have already been given a modern touch, thanks to two local artists who reproduced them. The 'WilliamWollaston' portrait has been replaced with local Rock Star Justin Hawkins, whereas 'Mrs.Bedingfield and Her Daughter; has seen the addition of Q's recent Best Album of the Year winner, Amy Winehouse.

Hey Everyone

Hi guys

Sorry I haven't been around so much. I'll try and get this site up and running again but haven't had much time.

Hope you're all happy about The Darkness reuniting! I've been to the show in Shepherd's Bush and will hopefully will have less trouble updating the FlamingWhopper's Youtube Channel at some point.
