ShockHound's SXSW Report: Day Four

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Down the street from Stubb's, a familiar voice from Emo’s Annex pierced the night air. It was Hot Leg, the new band by Justin Hawkins of the Darkness. Hot Leg play the same kind of campy cock rock he played with his last band, and are as paradoxically unironic the lyrics might be funny, but the music is completely serious; as Hawkins and bass player Sam Stokes told ShockHound after the set, it’s the kind of “music people want to hear.” The delirious, pogoing, fist-pumping crowd, which at one point carried a soloing Hawkins on its shoulders, was evidence enough.

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

K! editor Paul Brannigan reports from this year's South By South West festival.

Thursday, March 19

Day two of SXSW is set aside for a Kerrang!/Guitar Hero party at The Wave on Sixth Street. Over the course of the afternoon Gallows, Justin Hawkins from Hot Leg and Lips and Rob from Anvil will all pop in to check out the five band bill. That and there's free beer for everyone probably helps pack the venue too...

Review - Stone Gods & Black Spiders

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

@ Newcastle o2 Academy, March 21 2009

If you are a young, upcoming British rock band then be warned. The bar has suddenly been raised. Lifted high above the standard previously set for live shows in this country and close to the ceiling of top quality, well crafted and cunningly catchy music.

They call themselves Gods and on this evidence four frenzied dudes with razor sharps hooks really do hail from rock heaven.
