TRACK: Trojan Guitar

WHO: Hot Leg – they’ve got hooks, and they know how to use them.

WHAT: More glam rock by that bloke from The Darkness.

THE HYPE: “Debut single Trojan Guitar is 5 minutes 22 seconds of perfect rock music – riffs, melodies, solos, drop downs” –

WE SAY: Remember The Darkness? The band who entertained us with their glam-metal pastiche. Their eccentric frontman Justin Hawkins left the band two years ago, but now he’s back. And it’s comforting to hear that, while he may be older and perhaps wiser, he’s certainly not taking himself any more seriously.

Hawkins has hung up his lycra catsuits in favour of headbands, but the hard rock, Spinal Tap-esque sound remains – and with his new blonde hair, he certainly looks more like David St Hubbins than ever Trojan Guitar is stacked full of fun hooks, riffs and falsetto vocals. If you liked The Darkness, you’ll love this – if you didn’t, perhaps not. Either way, expect this to become a DJ’s favourite in time for this year’s round of Christmas parties.

Hot Leg have also made a ridiculous video to accompany the song, which features the band re-enacting a medieval battle. Will Hawkins be able to swashbuckle his way into the charts for a second stab at fame?

IF YOU ONLY NEED TO KNOW ONE THING: If you go to Hot Leg’s MySpace and join their mailing list, you can also download a free copy of another track, Heroes.

WHERE CAN I GET MY HANDS ON IT: Trojan Guitar is released October 20.
