The Darkness

5 12 2011

Give me a D!

‘D!’

Give me an Arkness

‘Arkness!’

 

Yes, The Darkness are back and I wrangled a pit pass for this explosive show.

I wasn’t expecting it to be half as good as it turned out to be. It’s been nearly five years since they last released anything, so expectations of a ‘reunion tour’ scenario, y’know ‘take the money and run through a set’ was quite high. Turns out all Justin and co. want is to be loved. And that they were. I must admit, it’s not hard to love a grown man who prances about in new jumpsuits every few minutes, whilst belting through some stomper hits… before riding a security guard like a bronco. …you just don’t get enough of that at the Olympia.

Anyway, you can find the rest of the set on State.ie or over at my Facebook Page

State Magazine, Front Page

1 03 2011

State launched it’s faces of 2011 Digital Magazine, and yours truly landed front page. Nialler9 and Guardian favourite Retarded Cop is a man destined for big things. It’s not hard to see why, he’s creating catchy, interesting tunes at a rate of knots. His lyrics are hilarious and relatable. There’s no bullshit with Gaz, he doesn’t seem to hold much back musically speaking – and that’s before you watch him parade around in his underwear playing a sweeping-brush–guitar.

Alas, I’m not great with these new-fangled word-y things, so have another picture and if you want to see the whole magazine in all it’s technicolour, widescreen glory, just click either of the images and be whisked there by the magics of the internet. What an age we live in…

 

 

Can’t get enough of this song either. Enjoy
