We Are Scientists, The Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Road, May 2.

ALTHOUGH they were one of the biggest acts at the Camden Crawl, We Are Scientists made a pretty disappointing spectacle. While scores of devoted fans bounced gamely and sang along, the three-piece delivered a mind-numbingly boring set.

The only exception was their hit single Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt which is still a rousing tune and was the highlight of the set. But on the whole dull singing, clich�d new song progressions with unimaginative tunes clogged up any momentum from the outset.

The numbers were punctuated by annoying, overly long jokey banter that reeked of smugness and guitarist Keith Murray's stage act, staggering around as if drunk and childishly stamping and bopping about smacked of someone struck by their own rock and roll grandeur. It would have been better and more convincing if he'd just stood still and delivered a more studied musical performance instead of calculated jack-assing.
