What a crowd it was: red in the face, swilling constantly, gurning for the camera. And that was just Justin Hawkins, lead singer of the Darkness, who the cameras picked out joining in the singalong to the insistent "doo-dooby-doo-doo" theme tune played between sets.

Hawkins might be that rarity among sports enthusiasts - a celebrity darts fan - but he clearly has the knack of being in the right place at the right time.

The Darkness (Another Review)

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

When The Darkness first sprang from oblivion in 2003, it was difficult to know how seriously to take them. Queen and '80s hair-metal were out of fashion even as subjects of ironic appreciation, and yet here was a band embracing their most excessive qualities, then exceeding them. Songs like "Get Your Hands Off My Woman" and "I Believe In A Thing Called Love," however, rocked hard enough to cut through reservations, doubt, and however many levels of winking appreciation were involved in their production, distribution, and reception.

The dartness

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

PHIL TAYLOR last night romped to an incredible 13th world crown after again humiliating hated rival Peter Manley.

The Power turned nuclear as he whitewashed his old foe 7-0 in front of a raucous Essex crowd at Purfleet’s Circus Tavern.

And Taylor’s rock star pal Justin Hawkins frontman of The Darkness jetted in from Dubai to watch the massacre.
