Justin Hawkins Writes Off Cracking America

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Justin Hawkins has admitted that he’s ‘not going to break his neck’ to crack America.

The Darkness frontman blames US radio stations with their highly selective and biased playlists for the reason why many British bands fall flat on their feet on the other side of the pond.

The Darkness return to form

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

I get no love for loving The Darkness. For me to admit that I enjoy this British band's fractured take on classic rock is to make a pact with the devil. I must face the barrage of disdain from all factions of the music-listening populace.

CD Spotlight - Return trip

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Most people don’t get the Darkness. Considering the unitards they like to prance around in, it’s easy to understand why. “Joke band,” some call them. On the other hand, those who do claim to “get them” usually don’t have a clue either.
