The B List: 10 One Hit Wonders From the 00s

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

As we reach the end of the decade it seems like a good time to take a look at the one hit wonders of the ’00s. Finding commercial success isn’t easy and it certainly isn’t a slight on the quality of a band’s music if they score one hit and never find the top of the charts again. Some of these bands (Los Lonely Boys, Fountains of Wayne) are extremely talented while others came up with a catchy hook that propelled them to success (Baha Men, Afroman).[...]

4. The Darkness - I Believe In A Thing Called Love



While English glam rockers The Darkness we’re pretty big over on the other side of the pond, they only scored one hit in America. I Believe In A Thing Called Love hit #9 on the Modern Rock charts in 2003. They never cracked the top 40 again.

Moonfest could face Devizes court case

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

The organisers of the Moonfest music festival in Westbury could find themselves in court after complaints about their advertising methods in Devizes.

Adverts for the event, at Storridge Farm on Sunday August 30, appeared at the weekend on the parapet of Town Bridge in Northgate Street, a pavement in New Park Street and, most controversially, on the wall of the Grade II listed Bear Hotel in the Market Place.

Early Review: Hot Leg - Red Light Fever

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Justin Hawkins is back with a vengeance.

He’s perhaps better known as the flamboyant and catsuit-clad frontman for defunct arena rock group The Darkness, and he’s got a new band: Hot Leg.

Hot Leg is Hawkins, guitarist Pete Rinaldi, bassist Samuel “SJ” Stokes, and drummer Darby Todd. The group released its debut album earlier this year, with the appropriately over-the-top title Red Light Fever, and is now touring to promote it.
