Stone Gods - Live at Norwich Waterfront - 30/01/08

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Norwich gig venue The Waterfront has never been as packed before, and there's good reason. This is the hometown/last-night-of-the-tour show by the Stone Gods; the new band by the line-up of The Darkness (minus singer Justin Hawkins, the old bass player promoted to front man, and with a new bassist roped in. Got that? Good).

The extreme density of the crowd is no-doubt helped by a quarter of the audience being made up of friends and family of the band (guitarist Dan Hawkins's mum alone has 'plus sixteen' on the guest list), but the performance delivered more than warrants it.

On the whole, Stone Gods are a much 'heavier' proposition than their previous incarnation, delivering a 12 song set that hints at every rock sub-genre they can possibly think of, from classic metal, a bit of punkier stuff, and even what one gig-goer dubbed 'theme tune from a crappy American teen drama'.

They may technically be a new band, but the stage-presence and musicianship of these guys is outstanding, with front man Richie Edwards clearly being born for the role.

Enjoy the pictures, and don't forget to check out our exclusive interview with the band in Issue Ten of Disposable Media, due out any day now!
