First Call, Last Call
Wednesday 20 January 1999
FOLLOWING A SERIES of sell-out stand-up shows at the Edinburgh Festival in recent years, Aussie comedian Mark Little (right) turns his attention to the battle of the sexes. The ex-Neighbours actor's latest venture is to bring Rob Becker's one-man comedy show, Defending the Caveman, to London. In this West End transfer, Little demonstrates a witty catalogue of recognisable human traits, which, some would say, have remained unchanged since prehistoric times.

BLACK STAR LINER are widely acknowledged as an up-and-coming Asian band. The Leeds-based trio took their name from a passenger shipping company, set up by Marcus Garvey in the 1940s, which aimed to provide black Americans with a free passage to Africa. Their music is an adventure in modern sound, using an invigorating mix of deep dub basslines with more traditional Punjab cross-rhythms and chants.
