Coffin Mew battle for joint first place at Law Rocks

Posted on: November 5th, 2015

Coffin Mew staff traded their desks and the court room for Fender Stratocasters, keyboards and drums as they battled their way to win joint first place in the annual ‘Law Rocks’ battle of the bands competition.

Taking place on Thursday 22 October at London’s cult music venue – The 100 Club on Oxford Street – the event saw an unprecedented result as Coffin Mew’s band Clover took the top spot alongside Addleshaw Goddard’s AG/DC after booming out Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls.

Since it’s launch in 2009 Law Rocks has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for a variety of charities, and provides an opportunity for legal professionals to unleash their inner rock star.

Coffin Mew raised money for Naomi House & Jacksplace, a charity which supports children and young adults with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

Coffin Mew’s John Parkinson comments: “This is our second time taking part in Law Rocks and we are thrilled to have won joint first place. It was a brilliant night and the entire audience was singing along with our band which made the atmosphere even more electrifying.”

“To play on a stage that has seen the Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols, Paul McCartney and Oasis is a fantastic experience which is made even more terrific by raising money for charity.”
