I probably should confess early doors that I’m a huge admirer of the spandex clad rock beast that is Mr Justin Hawkins. As front man of The Darkness, he laughed in the face of fashion and sensibility, daring to bring fun and showmanship back into rock music.

From the minute they start with ‘Theme from Hot Leg’ to set the scene of defiance and mayhem, it’s pretty clear that this will be FUN. It’s a nervous start, with understandable tensions. I don’t imagine that having photographers up your nose for the first three songs really helps your concentration or nerves. Doesn’t help the audience either, dammit! Caught in the glee of rocking out, it’s not an issue though. After the lenses have gone, relaxation sets in and Justin settles in to his natural habitat. That’s the defining moment, when Justin became JUSTIN again. From then on, it was showtime. He’s lost nothing of his talent, presence and tricks. The tight jeans are revealed as slutpants when the shirt comes off, as well as a pair of startling manpants - yellow and hotpink. Lord above, boy, wear low rise thongs… knickers made of kiddy sweets are a bit much for one of my age. The tennis outfit proves popular too. I swear, there’s no VPL on my photos… Plenty of superb new and old tatts, though.

Hot Leg to tour with Extreme

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

From LiveNation:

Extreme took the music scene by storm in 1990 with debut album Pornograffitti boasting badass, groove-laden swaggering numbers like 'Get The Funk Out' & the Number 1 hit ballad 'More Than Words'.
They will be supported on their forthcoming UK tour by Justin Hawkins new act Hot Leg, and Nuno Bettencourt close friends - the French brothers Laurent and Philippe of The Duvals.
