Classic Rock Magazine : The Darkness play their hometown for the very first time“This is the first time in 13 years I’ve been embarrassed,” Justin Hawkins admits during The Darkness’ first ever hometown show.
“I’ve just realised how embarrassing it is to sing songs about going to school in Lowestoft… in Lowestoft, to people who probably went to school with me.
“But don’t worry. It didn’t last long. I’m already back to feeling awesome, as usual.”
With the wind howling in off the North Sea, Justin, brother Dan, Ed Graham and Frankie Poullain created their own weather system inside the brand new Aquarium venue, melting a capacity crowd of 800 on its opening night.

Frankie Poullain leaves Twitter and Ed joins...Ok this headline felt a bit weird to write as leaving twitter may not seem like a big deal, but as fans might be trying to find him, we felt it was needed.
Frankie has left twitter after being on the social networking site for around a week, and jokingly put out a 'statement' about having to leave twitter on his personal Facebook account, stating 'I'm still on Facebook' whilst giving the link to Ed's twitter account instead.
Follow Ed on Twitter - @EdGrahamDrums, for now at least.
