CD REVIEW : RED LIGHT FEVER

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

What a welcome return for Justin Hawkins. After a year or two away from the Rock music scene, Hawkins back with his new band, HOT LEG. This is their highly anticipated debut album, 'Red Light Fever'. Hot leg are the perfect cure if not the remedying solution to the credit crunch with ten tracks of falsetto bouncing rockers which i missed since The Darkness imploded after their sophmore release.

NEVERMORE, PESTILENCE, TEXTURES and HOT LEG have been confirmed for the Aardschok stage (powered by Jägermeister) at this year's Zwarte Cross (Black Cross) festival, set to take place July 24-26 in Lichtenvoorde, Holland. A total of 18 metal bands will perform at the event which will feature 12 (!) stages, a theater area, a stunt arena, a kids arena and a full-blown motocross circuit.

You have to finish the festival with a laugh so when we spot Justin Hawkins (of Darkness fame) new band Hot Leg are playing at the grim smelling Underworld it seems appropriate we go see the man who had it all and then threw it away. For the record he looks worse for all of that Darkness nonsense, looking like a cross between a drag queen and a glam rocker (possibly the look he was going for). The funniest bit is that it's bloody enjoyable – Hawkins retains his take-the-piss attitude and you won’t see a mosh pit or stage invasion like it at the Camden Crawl for years – he may not be famous anymore but when he dusts off the catsuit he can still rock like the best of the 80s rockers.

Camden Crawl Review: Saturday Highlights

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Hot Leg (Listen: See them 1/6 @ Indig02)
Justin Hawkins of The Darkness leads what is hands-down the best half hour of the weekend. They sound studio-quality, with every soaring falsetto note and searing guitar solo finding its mark. They also sound exactly like the Darkness, which is exactly what the audience wants. Only these choice snippets from Hawkins' unfazed banter can begin to do the show justice: "There is a man in a one-piece trying to top the crowd." (Remarking on a sozzled serial crowdsurfer in a red jumpsuit who, at a distance, could be mistaken for a member of Datarock.) "No, you idiot, how are they going to see you if you're in there with them?" (Chastizing a disobedient member of the crowd who was meant to stand on stage shirtless.) "I think you know the rules about getting off the stage during Hot Leg." (In asking a woman to either leave the stage or remove her shirt, as per their rules.) "WE ARE HOT LEGGGGGG!" (In a song.) Why, oh why wasn't everyone here? (AS)

Behind-the-Scenes Vivid Video

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

The production team behind Vivid loves their Power Horse, an energy drink keeping them going. A behind-the-scenes video from the set focuses heavily on the canned (caffeinated) fuel, however, you do get a bit of co-star Justin Hawkins and some other on-set antics. It's rather silly. Seeing as this is the first in a series, hopefully we'll get something a bit more substantial next time.

Vivid is written and directed by Reg Traviss and stars Charisma Carpenter, Paul Sculfor and Ricci Harnett. In the film, a New York novelist relocates to rural England only to be rejected by the locals and haunted by horrific visions of a massacre.
