- The Darkness
..’member them..anyway, not heard much from them so did a quick UToob search..and some nice Rock n Roll songs have been turned outPosted 3 years ago
They had their moment. It was a good moment. We all enjoyed it. They enjoyed it perhaps a little too much (sniff).
I can’t say that the world is eagerly awaiting their all-conquering comeback though.Posted 3 years ago
Barbarian is rather excellent.
They’re a good old fashioned band, still belting out some great rock. See also Inglorious and Wayward Sons if that’s your thang.Posted 3 years ago
The Killers seem to have turned into the old Darkness.Posted 3 years ago
if that’s your thang.
Still a few minutes left to edit…Posted 3 years ago

After Justin left they formed a band called the Stone Gods until they reformed as the Darkness again. Some old fashioned rock there as wellPosted 3 years ago
Unfortunately, they’re not in the same league as Kasabian or Ocean Colour Scene.Posted 3 years ago
Nothing more than a novelty act: They were awful the first time around, and we don’t need to be reminded.Posted 3 years ago
I always thought they were a parody of some sort, an early 2000 version of Spinal Tap – did not realise they meant it!Posted 3 years ago
I saw them supporting someone, justin hawkins rode an albino tiger round the stage on a crane while doing a solo, how much more rock and roll could that be?
Well, his guitar cut out partway through, so he went no! Not rock and roll enough! And reversed the tiger back around the stage while doing another solo. It was awesome tbh.

They’re kind of both- a knowing wink and a silly reference, but also a real band. If Def Leppard became self aware basicallyPosted 3 years ago
they are excellent livePosted 3 years ago
I like them because you aren’t supposed to take them seriously.
A less foul mouthed Steel Panther 😉Posted 3 years ago
I assumed they were a one album novelty act.Posted 3 years ago
Saw them at a ynot festival a few years ago. Still good value and enjoyable show.Posted 3 years ago
I am looking forward to seeing them at Godiva festival on Sunday, if only for shits and giggles 😀Posted 3 years ago
Awesome, fun band: great tunes with some clever lyrics (growing on me), huge amounts of fun, superb musicians and all served with a tongue firmly in cheek.

League of what? Bands you like?Posted 3 years ago
They made a Christmas song and very nearly managed to shoe horn ‘bell end’ in. Didn’t quite work but good effort.Posted 3 years ago
Looks like they were staying at the new drummer’s dad’s place. Friends live across the road from him.Posted 3 years ago
Having just watched the first video up there^^^^ maybe they should be called The Cultness.Posted 3 years ago
Cant take anything away from Permission To Land. Brilliant debut.
Has he had his teeth done?Posted 3 years ago
I take it you haven’t heard Steel Panther

I was at Download this year and Steel Panther played so tight. Superb musical ability.
They need the top slot soon. 😀Posted 3 years ago
That is brilliant. Cheers CFH.Posted 3 years ago
Saw them a few years ago at Download, think it was the year they got back together, was hoping to see the brothers start punching each other.They were entertaining, getting the crowd to emulate his high pitched “Rock’n’Roll mother fu k rs” was my que to move onPosted 3 years ago
Playing at rock city Notts soon.Posted 3 years ago
I’ve seen them at Wembley arena, the tent at Download when they were the “secret” act, then Southampton Guildhall a couple of years ago on my birthday. Highly entertaining every time.
Getting the 12 year old girl on stage to sit next to Justin at the piano during Friday Night was a little disturbing, but I think it was Justin himself who said “this is all going a bit Rolf Harris”.Posted 3 years ago
