Music: The Darkness take every inch
It starts with a stripteasing girl and continues with Justin Hawkins’ invitation to “suck my cock,” then he explains he’s “in a band with my brother and my two best mates.” It’s The Darkness and new track Every Inch of You.
If the band had any acrimonious feelings about each other when they announced their reunion, they’ve consigned them to history during the making of comeback album Hot Cakes.
Every Inch of You is the first track, followed by Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us (released in January), With A Woman, Keep Me Hangin’ On, Living Every Day Blind, Everybody Having A Good Time, She Just a Girl Eddie, Forbidden Love, Concrete, Street Spirit and Love is Not the Answer.
The song continues: “I wanted to be a doctor, I wanted to be a vet – until I heard Communication Breakdown on a TDK D90 cassette.”
Frontman Justin Hawkins says: “Hot Cakes has a nice raw feel to it like the first album had, with occasional luxurious moments akin to the second. Each time we play a new song it feels like a deep powerful thrust in a frenzied love ritual between us and our fans.”
