Hot Topic

October 25, 2008

In less than 48 hours you can get your sticky mits on former
Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins’ return to form. And you’d be foolish
to miss out on the first single from his new band Hot Leg.

Trojan Guitar clocks in at a mighty five minutes-plus and
features all the multi-layered vocals, convoluted lyrics and guitar
hooks you’d expect from the man who made classic pomp rock cool again.
It’s not exactly catchy – and you’d probably call it a grower – but
there’s definitely something special about Hot Leg’s preamble to 2009’s
debut album.

Those of us counting down to Extreme’s Newcastle City Hall gig are
well aware that Hawkins and co. are providing the support that night.
And he told rushonrock: ”I think
the last time I played there was when The Darkness supported Def
Leppard and it’s a venue I just love. As soon as we wrap up our set
I’ll be in the crowd picking the best spot to check out the mighty
Extreme so seek me out and chew the rock fat.”

Justin, we’ll do just that! Trojan Guitar is released on Monday via Barbecue Rock Records and a full interview with Hot Leg’s Hawkins will appear here soon.
