This three piece from Birmingham are sure to divide opinion, especially with McLusky fans who will take sides as to whether they are the natural heirs to their throne or raping their legacy. Untitled Musical Project are not pretending to be anything that they are not though and the passion that this gig is shot through with seems genuine. The Brit Beastie Boys comparisons are less obvious here than on record but it is the EP tracks that shine most live in the form of the excellently titled Why Isn’t Paul McCartney Dead Yet and A side Beards And Drugs. Across nine songs in what feels like only as many minutes the band don’t deviate from the track much but keep just on the right side of the style and substance equation.
