The Darkness Follow the Trend and Slam Radiohead - February 18th 2004

The British Rock sensation of 2003, The Darkness, have decided to follow the now popular trend of slamming established rock band Radiohead, following their huge success at the Britt Awards. The Darknessís guitarist, Dan Hawkins, was quick to criticise the Oxford bandís approach:

ďMost of these modern bands are so unbearably serious they leave me cold. Radiohead are totally boring. The world needs a showman like Justin who puts on his monkey outfit and entertains people. I haven't bought anything by these modern bands in a while. They're all wet rags."

The Darkness are considered to be a return to 70s style rock, and many believe their retro style is a breathe of fresh air Ė something that Hawkins concurs with:

"Bands like Radiohead are great for our business, of course, because there's been a total Radiohead-isation of the British music scene. Coldplay, Turin Brakes, Starsailor - all of these groups have put together their selection from the Radiohead menu."

Hawkins explained that the reason the Darkness was successful was because they had chosen a style from a different era, thus making their music seem fresh. Instead of listening to Radiohead, he practiced by playing to his favourite bands from the 70s whom he considers to be the true old masters.

ďAt the end of the day, Iíd rather be a trend follower than a trend setter. But I donít want to be a trend follower thatís a sheep Ė if I did Iíd be copying Radiohead. Now Iím making sure Iím following a trend from 20 years ago, which is now so hideously out of date people canít accuse me of making populist music.

ďAs for Radiohead Ė they might be one of the greatest influences of modern rock music today, who broke new ground and have started a huge trend of copycat bands Ė but hey, we got 3 Britts.Ē
