THE DARKNESS-HOT CAKES-“THIS IS ROCK N ROLL” JOHN EMMS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Darkness’ new cd Hot Cakes is what rock n’ roll should be. Big Hooks,  evocative lyrics and explosive playing.

Produced by the band and mixed fat and grand by Bob Ezrin this cd kills.

The minute Nothin’s Gonna Stop Us, Everybody Have A Good Time, With a Woman, and Concrete come blasting out of your speakers you realize this band is on a mission.

The muscular guitar work by Justin and Dan Hawkins is a true revelation on Hot Cakes and Justin’s ( I presume) lead solos virtually rip on Every Inch of You,  Street Spirit, Living Each Day Blind, and Keep Me Hangin’ On. All the guitar work by the brothers has a solid soulful Mick Ronson (Alladin Sane era) effect.

Not to be outdone the band’s secret weapon may be the gutsy wallop of bassist Frankie Poulain and drummer Ed Graham who lock in then proceed to build their own dynamics.

Forbidden Love sounds like it could be a top ten rock radio hit.

JOHN EMMS is a veteran music journalist, radio host http://emms.podbean.com/ and founding blues rocker with THE SHAFTMEN www.theshaftmen.com
