THE LAW King Tut’s, Glasgow, August 21 * *

August 27, 2010

It’s hard to believe The Law are not only playing this weekend’s Reading and Leeds festivals but also headlining the BBC Introducing stage. Largely overlooked, and on past displays rightly so, the band’s debut album made little impact on its release last year.

Tonight they returned to Glasgow, but with songs like The Chase, City Boys, City Girls and Still Got Friday To Go showing a complete lack of originality as the four-piece lurched from Oasis to the Bay City Rollers via The Jam and Status Quo, it was to be another poor outing for the Dundee outfit.

At the helm singer Stuart Purvey did his best to mimic Liam Gallagher, but with his vocals uninspired and often – possibly due to his ‘over-tired’ state – quite weak and his chat restricted to joining in chants of “Oi Oi”, it’s fair to say Mr Gallagher won’t be losing any sleep over The Law, well not the band at least.
