Sweden Rock Festival

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

RAGE, DEATHSTARS, VAINS OF JENNA, BABYLON BOMBS, INNOCENT ROSIE, WITCHCRAFT, FOUREVER, HINDENBURG and HOT LEG (featuring former THE DARKNESS frontman Justin Hawkins) have been confirmed for the Sweden Rock Festival, set to take place June 3-6, 2009 in Sölvesborg, Sweden.

For a Monday night in Manchester, during this credit crunch era, STONE GODS pulled in a very respectable crowd all of whom were ready to rock like it was a Saturday night!

Since Justin Hawkins left THE DARKNESS a couple of years ago, the band tried to stagger on with new bassist Richie Edwards carrying on as new lead singer. Maybe the band finally realised that this was not a good idea as Richie’s voice is certainly not quite on that ridiculous falsetto level as Justins, but it seems they have made the right choice as his voice suits this band down to the ground. A very powerful and aggressive approach is the best way to sum up his voice, and from start to finish he didn’t botch a note.

On a similar yet entirely different note, Justin Hawkins mounted a roadie's shoulders for Hot Leg's final song, "Cocktails," and rode him through the audience while playing a guitar solo. It's a stunt Hawkins also did in his old band, The Darkness (whose first album I still listen to regularly), but it actually seems more appropriate here with the even more over-the-top Hot Leg. Where the Darkness were more Thin Lizzy, Hot Leg is the Sunset Strip circa 1986, complete with hairspray, makeup, and a studded leather jumpsuit. And posing. Every second of their performance was a photo op. That said, the band are tight and can really play all that stuff live. The songs, unfortunately, are a little to jokey this time around, even for Hawkins who wrote a love song to a genital wart. But as live spectacle, Hot Leg are something else.
