"Posh people love to party too. Hawkins is animated and full of enjoyable fun. His banter is just what the night needs as the stiff upper lips curl into smiles and brown brogues tap along to killer riffs and just great Rock music. Singalongs like 'Love Is Only A Feeling' get the crowd vocally dancing, trying unsuccessfully to match Justin's piercing falsetto. Apologising to the powers that be for any slippage into the occasional rude word during his inter song banter, Hawkins launches into 'Get Your Hands Off My Woman' triggering the whole audience screaming the chorus." That was part of our take on The Darkness supporting Toto at Royal Chelsea Hospital in June, and the Hawkins brothers return to London tonight at Chalk Farm's The Roundhouse. Also tonight, just up the road at Islington's O2 Academy, British Lion, the creation of Iron Maiden bassist and founder Steve Harris, are playing, with support from Voodoo Six.
