Hot Leg 12 Bar Swindon 28th October

November 3, 2008

Monday, 3 November 2008

A nice little venue this, and with Wadsworth 6X on tap good ale is available as well. Mind you at £3:00 a pint my “northern wallet” found the price a bit steep.

It’s a sell out for Justin “Dave” Hawkins new band Hot Leg tonight. Support is provided by Love Rockets who put in a work man like performance.

Hot Leg enter the stage with a slightly Spinal Tap look and feel about them. JH looks so much better (leaner & fitter) that when I saw him on the last Darkness tour.

Every thing is done very much tongue in cheek. Choreographed moves and matching headbands all add to the laugh. Some people may have a problem about this I for one don’t. Rock n roll should be fun and Hot Leg are fun with a capital F.
All the songs are from the yet unreleased first CD, so the only tracks the crowd knew were Trojan Horse and Heroes which have been available form the Hot Leg Website as a free Down Load.
Though I appreciate Mr Hawkins is trying to promote a new band I did think we should have had at least one song from his previous life, but it was not to be. Anyway I’m glad to see Justin
back doing what he does best and giving us all a good laugh in the process.
