  • In terms of energy and performance, nothing was better that the Keating Chambers Band. How they did not win is a mystery to rival that of an Agatha Christie novel.

  • Who was that lass in the Nabarros band who was just wearing knickers and no trousers? Very crowd-pleasing!

  • The music industry hit out last night at the legal profession’s latest attempts to bolster waning partner profits by forming rock bands.

    ‘This is obviously a desperate revenue-grab,’ said Marvin T’Ossrag of the Musical Monopolists National Socialist Collecting Society. ‘It’s yet another sleazy attack on the music industry by a bunch of pirates whose actions will only end up leading to the destruction of Western civilization.’

    The attack came after a group of lawyers who really should be tied to their desks in the City doing deals turned up at the 100 Club for an 80s stylee ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition in which the winning band would, it was rumoured, be exempted from their firm’s next redundancy consultation round. All proceeds from the event went to charity.

    ‘It’s clearly disgusting and a breach of everything we regard as sacred for this money to be going to save pandas or children with cancer or something when in fact it should be lining the pockets of the multimillionaire stars of rock and pop whose songs these bands clearly stole in order to present on stage, despite the long and tedious warnings – drafted by the lawyers themselves – which are inside every overpriced CD we sell,’ said T’Ossrag.

    The winners of the competition – CMS Cameron McKenna’s “The Stragglers” – were duly surprised to find music industry lawyers standing at the side of the stage ready to slap an injunction on them following their rendition of the Killers’ ‘All These Things That I Have Done’.

    ‘The maximum penalty for copyright theft and public performance like this is a £4.2bn fine and 20 years’ hard labour for every lawbreaker and all their extended family on Anthrax Island, off the coast of Scotland (not, as some believe, another name for the Isle of Man),’ said T’Ossrag.

    ‘It is totally clear to us now that this band intends to fee-earn on the side, not only recording albums of cover versions without permission but encouraging hordes of teenage girls to download their songs and other songs infected by this pernicious virus to their iPhones, thereby ensuring the destruction of the music industry within five years and the collapse of civilization as we know it the week after.’

    The Music Industry is old, but persists in acting as if it’s not.

  • I think knickers lady was Cheryl Richards.

    Completely agree that Rough Justice was robbed - stonking songs and a rare diamond in a certain lead guitar playing QC....

    Plus I've always been a sucker for a piccolo trumpette...

  • obviously the court day has come to an end and the entire Keating chambers is blogging! My vote went to Nabarros, and not because of the knickers lady, but because of their knockout front man. What a god!

  • As an impartial spectator i must say i was seriously surprised that Lovells didn't win! They were by far the most talented musicians and I think most of the crowd were taken aback that they didn't even end up in the final 2!! Enjoyed the whole night but, in all seriousness, it was Lovells' trophy.

  • I thought it was "Law Rocks"...not "Law does Pop" - Lovells provided the only band to give us a set of stonking rock songs! Honestly, Lovells was robbed!

  • Word on the street now seems to be that Lovells were robbed!

  • This is great fun, I am really delighted that lawyers are getting into music, competiton, it makes us more human and healthy.

    I am a musician and I think I should have followed my heart and not my intellect but now I realised you can still be a musician and practice law...well done Cameron..

  • With all this talk of the 'knickers girl', how about a few photos?

  • I find this overwhelming support for Keating Chambers to be a victory for the true Rock and Roll Spirit that made the 100 Club famous -
    If Paul Kossof was alive today he would have been proud of the unique interpretation of All Right Now delivered with energy and passion by the lads of Rough Justice - Rock on Boys !

  • She should have been referred to as 'Bridget Jones knickers woman' by the looks of it.

  • How about posting the bands' performances on You Tube or similar, with a link to a charity giving site (even better, set up a site that takes a donation as a precondition to viewing the performances)? There are some among us who were not there, but would have liked to be, and are willing to support the charities concerned.
