Dude. The Darkness.

One of my lovely Valentines gifts was “Permission To Land” by The Darkness, which I had listened to, and wanted ever since.
The Darkness so totally rocks. You’ll simultaneously be laughing your arse off and wondering if this band is a joke, but at the same time you’ll be rocking out to some kick ass songs. You’ll also start saying “arse” if you don’t already. They’re like a mystery in an enigma, in a paradox, wrapped in a tasty tortilla.
We’re going to see them here in Austin in April.

    I’ve only seen one video of theirs (I believe it was on MTV2, since MTV doesn’t even know what videos are anymore), but I totally digged it. [up]

    I so totally love their gratuitous swearing. Plus, what a great gift! Somebody was so generous!

    My husband hated them a lot when he first heard of them. Now they crack his shit up.

    I sure hope Dave isn’t a regular reader, because he’d eat you alive! He dislikes The Darkness. I don’t mind them.

  5. Jess says:

    Yes, because everyone should go about eating people alive for liking bands they don’t! Put it this way, if we’re at the Darkness gig, we won’t be elbowing Dave out of the front row of the James gig. 😛

    No, I mean he really doesn’t like The Darkness. It’s my standard comment whenever someone mentions them in a diary. Witness Soupy’s similar entry.
    And there will be no more James gigs! They split in 2002.

  7. Jess says:

    Well, my point still stands. (I’m sorry that James split, though. I mean, sorry on behalf of you and Dave; obviously if I hadn’t noticed I can’t have been that personally sorry.)
    It’s a little bit of a pet peeve of mine that people get down on other people for liking whatever. I was trying to say it nicely, though.

  8. Simon says:

    Oh, I completely agree. It’s just that I wanted to say something in the absence of having an opinion on The Darkness.

    I tried to get tickets, I really did! They are like gold dust. I wanted to offer my rock ‘n’ roll virginity up to the God of sparkly catsuits – Justin.
