The Law: A Measure Of Wealth

Dundee band The Law got lucky when they song Don't Stop, Believe was picked for the Hollywood movie The Men Who Stare at Goats, which found them sharing the bill, in a way, with George Clooney, Kevin Spacey and Rebecca Mader.

The harsh reality is that they still are a promising guitar band trying to get a gig in a half decent place, so that they can play the songs of their A Measure Of Wealth album. It is a record filled with mostly uptempo songs with plenty of catchy hooks and riffs. Thye sing about getting sucked in by a TV with hundreds of channels, boys, girls, and looking forward to the weekend. It is refreshing to hear a Scottish band that doesn't go for the grandiose, but for down-to-earth danceable melodic pop.

Stuart Purvey: vocals
Stevie Anderson: guitar
Simon Donald: bass
Martin Donald: drums
