THE DARKNESS – Cardiff, Wales (Concert Review)

THE DARKNESS – Cardiff, Wales (Concert Review)

As concerts go this is definitely one of the most amusing and unusual I have had the pleasure to witness. After zipping across the world enclosed in a pressurized tin can shooting through the air at over 500 mph, I definitely needed something to relieve the pressure of a hard trip and The Darkness tonight were just the remedy to soothe my ills. I saw The Darkness around 4 months ago in Australia and knew they…

THE DARKNESS – Pinewood Smile (Album Review)

Even though the release date for this record is October, I received this in July for review and this one came out of left field for me.

When they released a new song “All the Pretty Girls” some…

Interview with Frankie Poullain of The Darkness

Interview with Frankie Poullain of The Darkness

I am a fan of The Darkness, no ifs, ands or buts about it, right from the start. I was fortunate enough to be in England on business when they were just hitting in their homeland, sadly I did not get to catch a show of theirs while there. That would have to wait some 10 years later and after 2 shows in Toronto at The Phoenix in 2012 and 2014, or somewhere around then…

The Darkness: Last Of Our Kind Album Review

Album review: The Darkness: Last Of Our Kind Release Date: June 2, 2015 I recall central park in fall….wrong story wrong movie wrong precursor to another amazing English band. The Darkness. Who the hell is The Darkness? That is all I heard for many years in North America as I preached them to be the saviours of a mundane rock scene. All I had to do was go on a business trip to England, spend…

The Darkness-Last Of Our Kind (June 2, 2015)

The Darkness are returning! The Brit hard rockers probably most well know for their song “I Beleive In A Thing Called Love” are issuing their fourth full-length album, Last Of Our Kind, on June 2, 2015 to North American markets. The album sees new drummer Emily Dolan Davies (who has since left) replacing founding member Ed Graham who departed late last year under “mysterious circumstances”.
