The Independent On Sunday

+ posted by Sez

Anyone expecting the post-rehab Justin Hawkins to be apologetic, acoustic, introspective and toned down is in for a shock.
Hot Leg, Hawkins' new "Man Rock" quartet, are the Darkness-plus. From the hocus-pocus shrieking of opener "Chickens" to grandiose Steinman-esque closer "Kissing in the Wind", 'Red Light Fever' is all about jubilant falsettos, crashing crescendos, and ludicrously layered arrangements. If something's worth doing - as Hawkins knows better than anyone - it's worth overdoing.

Pick of the album: Coming out of the closet: 'Gay in the 80s'

“Start of Something was one of the first songs we wrote as Stone Gods, ” explains frontman Richie Edwards, “The words reflect the positive outlook that we had, and still have. It’s a real hands in the air, ‘you won’t stop me, fucker’ song!”

“It’s about staying positive in the face of adversity, isn’t it?” concurs bassist Toby MacFarlaine, “And Lord knows we can all use a little of that right now!”

HOT LEG - Red Light Fever

****

RIGHT. If no one else will do it, allow me to stand up for Justin Hawkins. A quick reminder of his CV:

With I Believe In A Thing Called Love by The Darkness, he wrote the most important rock riff since Back In Black.

He delivers a catchy hook, allied to clever and funny lyrics. He has a unique voice. He’s a stupidly under-rated guitarist. He still manages to pull off Spandex. Mostly.

So welcome to Hot Leg’s debut, wall-to-wall with huge riffs, catchy choruses and Bohemian Rhapsody production.

Justin has also found a rhythm section hewn from the living rock of Stonehenge.

Red Light Fever should propel JH out of the clubs and back into the arenas. A joyous, triumphant, hard-rockin’ romp. GF
