Editorial Reviews

Vinyl LP pressing. 2009 debut album from this new band featuring Justin `Dave' Hawkins, former lead singer/lead guitarist/lead songwriter of The Darkness. Hot Leg are an entirely hairier beast, and they make really really brilliant Rock music. Hot Leg were introduced last year with the single `Trojan Guitar' and followed up with the equally epic `I've Met Jesus'. MX3.

Customer Reviews

It has become into one of my favorites.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the CD's second half is unlistenable, just that the CD's second half is not as consistently good as its first half.

Cocktails is an all around fantastic song that will get you pumped up for the rest of the album in a matter of one listen.

The wait, although really not as long as it could have been, for a new album from Justin Hawkins is over. His British Whale synth pop alias was essentially a tease with just two singles released, so the anxiety over more available material has since heightened. Enter Hot Leg, Justin's new band consisting of himself and three friends. They label themselves "man rock," which is amusing but fitting (silly outfits are out, sweatbands and leggings are in). This is Hawkins' baby as he wrote, recorded, and produced everything. And what a beautiful baby it is!

Red Light Fever is arguably deserving of comparison to The Darkness' debut, Permission To Land. The guitar licks, fun, and flamboyancy are all there. The flavor of The Darkness goes wherever Justin Hawkins goes, and further proof exists in what his former band mates have done in Stone Gods - they just aren't the same or as popular without their departed mastermind. Hawkins is carrying Hot Leg on his back now and the band is looking to make their mark in the man rock charts.

Some songs which sound Darkness-esque, "Cocktails" and "Gay In The 80s" as two examples, are actually both co-written by Chas Bayfield, an unknown friend/writer of sorts. Was he around in The Darkness days? "Cocktails" is a very catchy song, but don't allow yourself to be caught singing the chorus aloud... `Cock [cock]/ Cock, cock, cock, cocktails/ Cock [cock]/ Cock, cock, cock, cocktails.' And then you have uncharacteristic songs like "Ashamed" featuring Beverlei Brown harmonizing with Hawkins, "Trojan Guitar," described as a medieval five-minute-plus epic, and "Kissing In The Wind," a relatively mellow album closer.

"Hot Leg" is the new band of former "The Darkness" front man, Justin Hawkins. With his new allies, Peter Rinaldi (G), Samuel Stokes (B) and Darby Todd (D) Hawkins puts out the first ever album under the musical subgenre "Man Rock": "Red Light Fever" could indeed be considered the first "Man Rock" album released.
But what is that term anyway? According to Justin* it is: "hair metal, glam and Cock rock, all rolled up into one."

Well, in actuality, "Hot Leg" sounds much like a mixture of "Meat Loaf" and "Queen" covered with AC/DC riffs and of course Justin's vocal and lyrical madness. The album is overall eccentric in a very British way. That is not to say however that Hard Rock fans should be worried as this band has nothing in common with the "indie rock" bands that the UK has been relentlessly producing. No, this is indeed Hard Rock, silly, satirical, tragic, but overall uncompromising.

Furthermore, it would be untrue to say that this album does not stand out from the rest of Hair Metal- Hard Rock releases as Hot Leg is a very interesting (possibly mental) case of a band that delivers huge tracks such as "Chickens", "You can't hurt me anymore", "Cocktails" and "Whichever way you wanna give it".

Putting the band's theatrics aside, "Red Light Fever" is as intriguing as any debut album should be; for the audience that enjoys satirical bands or wishes to explore new Hard Rock styles this album is definitely a must. For the traditional Hard Rock- Glam Metal fans, try to approach this album in as much an open minded way as possible and you will definitely be rewarded.

"PowerPlay" UK Magazine, (issue 107) marks this album with 9/10 commenting: "It's a lean, mean man rock machine."

"Classic Rock" UK Magazine, (issue 130) marks this album with 8/10 commenting: "Gloriously extravagant and endearingly stupid, it's the Hot Leg effect..."

Nothing brings about a smile like Justin Hawkins soaring vocals. Just as great as the Darkness' two albums were, Red Light Fever delivers the promise of new great music from Hot Leg. Fun, high spirited songs make any day better. Cocktails is an all around fantastic song that will get you pumped up for the rest of the album in a matter of one listen.

In my opinion The Darkness were definitely the best rock band to emerge so far this millenium. In fact the only decent new rock band! If you can imagine a mix of AC/DC, KISS, Queen and the Bee-Gee's with a big modern sound and some British humour thrown in - that was The Darkness, and perhaps not surprising, that is Hot Leg too.

Just Hawkin's is fabulous. Having seen The Darkness rise to the very top in the UK and then fall spectacuarly with their brilliant second album, you could forgive him for a change in direction. Perhaps he would tone down the falsetto? Perhap's he would avoid the humour. Thank God he didn't. This album is just fully charged, uplifting rock.

If I had to rate Justin Hawkin's releases so far it would probably be

1. One Way Ticket
2. Permission To Land
3. Red Light Fever

But they are all fantastic and deserved of 5 stars.

Best song on this album is the ridiculous "I've Met Jesus". If only it were humanly possibly to sing along too. I've tried many a time and done some serious damage to the throat, not to mention the neighbours ears. If this song doesn't make you put your foot down when driving the car, then you don't like rock'n'roll.

Other standouts are the gloriously commerial, massive chorused "Whichever Way You Wannat Give It", the insane "Chickens" and "You Can't Hurt Me Any More".

I've had this album for over a year now and am desperate for a follow-up. Be it a second Hot Leg album or a third by The Darkness.

Justin, you saved Rock'n'Roll. Thanks!
