  • The quality of the bands last night was excellent, congratulations to all. I think the 'judge' protests too much. Rather than mob rule, the audience was surprised that the band Big Ghost, who were very heavy but absolutely outstanding on the night, created a barnstorming performance and were not fairly treated by a panel that clearly did not like heavy rock. Sounds like music that comes out of a 12 year old boys bedroom was one comment. Rather than 'Law Rocks', I would say it was more 'Law Pop' and the most genuine Rock Band found that its brand of rock was too heavy for the tastes of the panel. I am guessing that had Big Ghost played Bon Jovi, Darkness, Queen, AC/DC then they might have had a chance. Instead, as befitted the 100 club, one of the first venues to showcase punk rock, there was no compromise - it was out and out rock, played with attitude and the highest levels of musicianship.

  • Oh come on, be fair - there were better bands. I thought Big Ghost were great, but so did they. It's about having fun, no point being b*tchy here and throwing dollies out of prams. Try again.

  • Well said Chris - the "sounds like music from a 12 year old boys bedroom" comment actually made me slightly angry being a 35 year old that listens to all of the bands Big Ghost covered.

  • Count yourselves lucky. If Demolition had been playing, they would have wiped the floor with the lot of you.

  • I'm one of the band members of Big Ghost and while I appreciate all the support I feel this has all got a bit out of hand. Let's just remember what this event is about. It's a light hearted competiton to raise money for charity and have some fun. I personally thought Squire Sanders were thoroughly entertaining and wouldn't want to take away from their well deserved victory.

  • Good call re Demolition. I saw them play last year at the same competition. Awesome. They went through to a play-off but did not win. Came second but were very gracious in defeat. No tears. A great band. And very butch.

  • Good call, Scott Easton! But remember that this whole thing involves lawyers...

  • I loved the Demolition show at last year’s Law Rocks. Great attitude on stage. I have a picture of their guitarist on my wall and a picture of the bass player. In the middle is a picture of my husband. That’s how much I love them !
