SXSW Day 3

March 20, 2009

The first album by Hot Legs – former Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins’ new band – hasn’t released its first album in the U.S. yet, but the group is already working towards its second. Guitarist Pete Rinaldi and drummer Darby Todd told on Friday – after the British quartet’s performance at a Spin-magazine afternoon party at South20By Southwest, one of four scheduled festival performances – that Hawkins and company were into “serious” songwriting for the follow-up to “Red Light Fever.” The group played one of the new songs, “Whichever Way You Want to Give It to Me (Theme From Hot Leg),” during is performance. “Red Light Fever,” which echoes the Darkness’ flashy, past-referencing pomp rock, was released Feb. 9 in the U.K. Its U.S. release date is pending. Hot leg has four more performances scheduled for SXSW.
