Inside the astoria, prestigious music venue in London, the air is thick with smoke and sweat.
bludgeoning guitar riffs as heavy as lead air, covered by a hysterical falsetto emerging of a man running star jumps in a pink and white f? tichisme latex.
In a musical landscape populated by brilliant tv today pop idols and poignant guitar hip acts, this can be only one band.
“get your hands off my wife, *** eeeeer Motherfuckers! “Shouts the singer with a high ground if he is lucky the astoria offers pint plastic glasses.
Welcome to the sublime and ridiculous world of darkness, very clean mock-glam-rockers from lowestoft.
i ‘ve got about 30 catsuits now, “said Justin Hawkins, the man with the falsetto. “My wardrobe on the biggest thing we are transporting around the country right now. “
For the concert tonight he is torn between the white and pink catsuit and silver. “Or maybe I’ll wear pants and white gold? Or more black leather? I just do not know. “
Darkness – justin on guitar and vocals, his brother, Dan, on guitar, pouillain frankie on bass and Ed Graham on drums – filled to the Astoria in April.
This is a remarkable achievement for a still-unsigned band and opened the way to musical stardom. Now, after selling nearly a million of shore leave, their first album, they’re back as part of the series back to television carling.
“Give me a had ‘!” Justin yells to the crowd in ecstasy. It is now in black leather pants with a tattoo of flames rising from his groin, as if his pants are on fire.
“Give me a ‘arkness’! “
This year was a tale of two justins. One, a beautiful britney spears-ex: Justin Timberlake, a slick, street dancer with the face of an angel. The other a skinny whimsical, discovering in the chest with overbite of freddie mercury, some suspect maneuvers of dance and voice of mariah carey.
They can both hit the high notes – but only justin hawkins houses the ambition to build an onstage “ass of triumph” for their first concert stage.
“it would be a big bow made of a bottom,” says Justin. “We would go out through play. But it is only when we start playing stadiums and arenas … “
As if the documentary back home were not sufficiently recognize this is spinal tap, you can not help them remember the 80s when the parody rockers built little henge, styrofoam “homage” to the circle of stone somerset.
“Do not start,” said Justin.
Ongoing project group is an assault on Christmas cards, the rock ballad with tongue-in-cheek, the holiday season: do not let the bells end, the chorus sung by a group of swing Membership of doe-eyed.
How have they got away with children singing “bell end” in a unique Christmas? (For the pure in heart, “end bell” is slang for part of the male anatomy. Use your imagination …)
“How do you mean? “Justin asked, innovative full well what I mean.
“Well, if you want to think of these connotations …”
He laughs. “Ok, so we went. I thought at first it was a few years ago. If you must know, the second line is “let them ring in peace,” so that children also sing ‘ringpiece’. “
” We worked with an American producer and he did not get it all, “says Justin. “He kept complaining that end ‘does rhyme with bell ring in the room.”
