Michael Deacon reviews The Darkness at the Alexendra Palace

The piano and acoustic guitars were out, and in the world of swollen-hearted rock balladry, that means only one thing. At least, it used to. "Come on!" implored Justin Hawkins in mock disbelief, as he peered into the gloom enshrouding his audience. "You must have a lighter!"

Darkness light up London

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

DECENDING onto the stage aboard a giant pair of boobs, Justin Hawkins kicked off his group’s arena tour in sensational style.

The Darkness’ second night at Alexandra Palace was less rock gig, more West End show!

Amazingly, it has been more than three years since the band released their debut album Permission to Land.

Flying in face of knockers

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Does Britain still need The Darkness? Until some other band takes it upon themselves to begin a show suspended atop a bungalow-sized pair of comedy breasts, the answer has to be yes.

There was frontman Justin Hawkins, nestled deep in the cavernous cleavage like a bawdy sequined necklace. During aptly titled opener Knockers he conducted an airborne circuit of the venue while the nipples flashed brightly "just like the real thing".

The Meteors Go Mental...

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

The Meteor Awards 2006 were like a leaf out of the analogues of Rock 'n' Roll with bad behaviour and drunken antics as a mix of celebs and singers hit the streets of Dublin...

Ah, it's with a sigh of relief we bring you our report from this year's Meteor Ireland Music Awards - because we love it when celebrities let their hair down and run amok!
