Yesterday we reported that outré cock rockers The Darkness had reformed, causing everyone at Prefix to see if they could squeeze into those mothballed spandex pants that had been lying in a closet since the halcyon days of Permission to Land. Sadly, it appears those efforts were wasted, as singer Justin Hawkins claims via Twitter that the reunion isn’t happening.
Hawkins was clearly amused by the original story published in British tabloid The Sun, who claimed that drummer Ed Graham had reunited the singer with his brother, Dan, by inviting them over to see his newborn son. Unfortunately (and somewhat hilariously), it appears Graham doesn’t actually have any kids.
The singer claims the reports were “essentially horse shit,” but obviously found them to be a hoot, saying that he was “startled to read that I've been spending time with a small child that I didn't know existed!” and that “Neither Dan nor I were aware of a 'bitter feud' that has lasted half a decade. We've been at war for over 30 years!”
